Swiss / United – $537: Washington D.C. – Beirut, Lebanon. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

Swiss is selling Beirut on the cheap from DC to Beirut. As far as we can tell, it is only available for purchase on CheapOair. While Swiss is selling the ticket, the flight between DC and Geneva is actually operated by United, so you will earn 100% mileage for those segments. However, since it is on Swiss ticket stock, you will not earn any United Premier Qualifying Dollars.
