I was looking at DEN-ANC fares, right now on United, it is 409, but if you leave on United from COS, and connect in DEN, it is 339!!! Why though, it is just one more flight for less, I cannot leave form the springs.

Both Malaysia Airlines and Singapore Airlines used to (or perhaps still) offer cheap fares between KUL/SIN and Australia. e.g. It's sometimes cheaper for a Malaysian to fly KUL-SIN + SIN-SYD compared to a Singaporean flying direct SIN-SYD. These flights are usually timed early in the morning which require a Malaysian to overnight in SIN. Any loss they made in the flight fare they gained back by charging high for the accommodation. This tactic is of course done to entice Malaysians to use SQ, and the same goes for MH which offer the same sort of deal for our neighbour.
