LAX - EWR in economy?
You can book UA or AA and alternatively use SQ for UA and BA for AA.

52.5k Aeroplan x 0.014 = $735 + $490 = $1,225
70k United x $0.0125 = $875 + $69 = $944

I wanted to give you a breakdown vs just a yes or no answer so you can see for yourself how to calculate this..

1) I don't dictate the market, the market dictates the pricing.
2) Aeroplan has more sweet spots than United
