United – $282: Dallas / Phoenix – Antigua. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

United is at it again attacking American’s fares to Antigua. Plan those Winter getaways now — the only downside of these fares is the need to overnight in Newark on both the outbound and return. (For about $40 more, it is possible to avoid it in one direction – see the how search section for info).

As a comparison – American’s cheapest fare is about $400 with overnight layovers in Miami and double connection. The ones without overnight is about $600.
