American, Delta, JetBlue, and United have been competing Frontier’s ultra-low pricing between Los Angeles and Orlando.

While previously their lowest fares were all basic economy, which were created to fight back against ultra low cost carriers, United now has $35 standard economy tickets on this route! That makes them the best option on the route now.

United: Los Angeles to Orlando $35 dates:
October: 10, 15, 16, 17, 23, 24, 26, 29, 30, 31
November: 1 through 18, 24, 25
December 2 through 15
January 5 through 31
February 1 through 9

United: Orlando to Los Angeles $35 dates:
October: 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 24, 29, 30, 31
November: 1 through 19, 22, 23, 26
December 1 through 16

Whatever you do, make sure not to pay the $3 to upgrade to basic economy! Personally I think this is a great way to prove that you are not a robot, sure beats finding sidewalks or traffic lights! 😀

Using Chase Points:

You can pay for the ticket with “hybrid points” such as AMEX or Chase points with a card that allows your points to be used at an increased value for airfare in addition to be able to transfer points into airline miles.

If you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve card you can redeem points for 1.5 cents each towards travel. If you have a Chase Sapphire Preferred you can redeem points for 1.25 cents each towards travel.

You can login to your account and redeem Chase points for travel here. The cost will be just 2,340 points each way with a Sapphire Reserve! That rate include all taxes and you will still earn flight miles as well!


Using AMEX points:

You can login to your account and redeem AMEX points for travel here.

AMEX charges 3,510 points plus you’ll get back a rebate of 1,229 points with the Business Platinum Card or 878 points with the Business Gold Card, dropping the total needed to as low as 2,281 points. That includes all taxes and you can still earn miles for flying!
