Book by 9 January, fly between 22 January and 30 June. ATH-SYD-ATH $2200 ai, very attractive.

Also seems to be a sale on all alliances ATH-JFK-ATH at the moment, $2400 ai on (eg) LX.

Great find... building on that... How about ATH-BKK - $1384 all in!
(Found it on Orbitz, offered by Emirates.)

I plugged in March dates.

Happy New Year!!

1/25-1/31 SFO-DFW-MIA-MGA-MIA-DFW-SFO, $899.90 ai. On AA get the DEQM for the entire trip and if a CA/TX resident the stackable DEQM for the SFO-DFW-SFO legs. If CA/TX resident, comes to 5.1 eqcpm, which is not bad for a first/business ticket. Total EQM is 17,356.

SFO-DFW-MIA-SJO-MIA-DFW-SFO on same dates is $952.43 ai and 5.5 eqcpm, total EQM is 17,768.

Both book in A and I class.

If you want to get more miles there is on the same dates: SFO-ORD-BOS-MIA-SJO-MIA-ORD-SFO. $1,021.43 ai. CA/TX get EQM of 22,188, which is 4.6 eqcpm. 4 of these and you are very close to EXP for $4k, all flights in business class or higher.

If you don't want to stay so many days, I tried a 1/8 - 1/11 booking the above and it was about $100 more.

Posted a DL MGA fare on this thread (actually was the one to start this thread), but it seems to have been deleted -- how does that happen?

Wow, with that kind of deal 2012 is starting quite well! Shame that I have already booked my spring holiday, otherwise I would have jumped on this deal.
