A good sale to Bahrain, the smallest country in the Persian Gulf.
Just a commentary on the absurdity of fuel surcharge – the base fare on this ticket is $70, the fuel surcharge is $618, with the rest in taxes. If you have an United discount voucher like the ones we giveaway thanks to the generosity of our readers a few weeks ago, the 20% discount would’ve been on the base fare or $14! If you have a customer service issue with United and is offered compensation, always take cash or cash equivalent or miles as the compensation.
