Thanks! Any idea why the AC website is only showing the connecting flights on UA/Copa but not the direct flight on Copa?
Probably no saver availability. UA shows Copa even without saver at a much higher price.

Not that I know of. Keep in mind it's CAD so a bit less.

I had a similar situation and I booked with UA, A. Because I already had almost all the miles in there and for LM I would have to transfer from Amex, and I already saw that there is dwindling uses for UA miles so might as well use them up. B. Free changes and easier to handle in case of IRROPS which seems to be fairly regular on summer flights to Italy (this weekend there's a strike, for example).

TLV to DXB in J
DXB to CMN in F

When booked as one reservation itís more expensive (251K) then if I book it as two separate flights (205K) and it seems like AC will be the cheapest option.

Is there a way to make it on one reservation for the cheaper price? Or thereís no point?

Is there a better way to book this?

Look for a AA operated flight. It should be much less taxes

Probably AC, should be no YQ on OS. LM with a throwaway additional segment in Y like ORD-LAX might be a good deal too if you can get it to pull up.
