I am trying to book two flights for Dec 27 - one from Houston and another from Newark. The flight from Houston has a 1 hr layover at Newark. And it's the same flight that I'm booking from Newark.
Houston -> Newark (UA322) -> Mumbai : Costs $726
Newark (UA322) -> Mumbai : Costs $2300
Please note that even though it's the same set of flights, the difference in price is ridiculous considering the one from Houston actually involves more travel.
I tried calling the customer care, but they don't seem to understand the situation.
