You really have to keep on checking, just yesterday I was searching for a flight, the time I went to book it wasn't available anymore, checked today again and it was back.
#1 they could release more.
#2 people cancel their reservation.

Wow. Looks like UA dynamic pricing is here.
That's a 1.7cpm valuation.

This is far from cool. It's the beginning of the end.

How come I can't duplicate that pricing even logged in with a CC account?
Are you logged in from an elite account?
