Airfare Deal – United: Philadelphia – San Antonio (and vice versa) $173. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

We really like United’s partnership with Amtrak. This fare is $193 if you “fly” out of Philadelphia. If you start your trip from Philadelphia 30th Street Railway Station then transfer at Newark for your flight, this fare is only $173. A nice $26 savings.
