"Good Deals" in Economy Class - Excellent Fares between certain city pairs - 2012

Happy 2012!
Please use this thread to post or to follow Economy Fares which are 'Good Deals' but where the cost per mile is more than 3-4c per mile, which is the usual upper limit for what is considered a true 'MR Deal'.

Awesome total miles for MR staying in US

I did the BOS-IAH-SEA-ANC RT last year, was great run, even with a few delays, (crew member sick - walked off plane) no worries as that run used same plane to and from ANC. This routing looks like a few more miles though. Very tempting, I will need to see if I can work in cheap positioning or schedule around work trip or a mini vacation in Florida. Looked at adding IAH or DEN options,, but price jumps. Will play around with some other connections. I just can't book at 4.9 cpm this early.
Thanks OP - another one to add to my daily list to check!

AC/SN: BRU-YOW for 392 ai or BRU-YUL/YYZ for 424 ai

Finally something decent going from EU to CA. Not pure MR material but excellent price considering fees left, right and center. All on Maple Leaf. Peculiar thing is that I am not sure if there is something wrong with this fare, the way it is loaded or something, since it is below what both AC and other *A partners are charging on their sites...

Fare Basis: KLNNZEUW
PERMITTED 09JAN 12 THROUGH 26MAR 12 OR 13APR 12 THROUGH 24MAY 12 ON THE OUTBOUND TRANSATLANTIC SECTOR.

Also interesting:
5 TRANSFERS PERMITTED IN EACH DIRECTION FREE 3 FREE IN AREA 2 IN EACH DIRECTION 2 FREE IN AREA 1 IN EACH DIRECTION FARE BREAK SURFACE SECTORS NOT PERMITTED AND EMBEDDED SURFACE SECTORS PERMITTED ON THE FARE COMPONENT. NOTE - UNLESS RESTRICTED BY ROUTING ATTACHED TO FARE RECORDS.

Bookable on Big O or Cheaptickets.

Sample dates: 03 Mar - 17 Mar

CO/CM is often significantly lower than from other gateways

On this route, due to the competition from Santa Barbara. Never heard of them until a few months ago, except maybe to see the checkin desk in MIA.

BOI
This deserves its own thread. Great find! Also works out of PHL.

I am looking at PHL-EWR-SFO-BOI-SFO-IAH-PHL or PHL-EWR-SFO-BOI-SFO-IAH-PHL [better arrival time] for about 3.5-3.6 CPM.

The only downfall is that it will require spending a night in BOI, but hotels in BOI are cheap anyway, so a good mattress run as well.

ETA: BOOKED! PHL-EWR-SFO-BOI-SFO-IAH-PHL on Jan 21-22

Update: This post is now irrelevant, since the MIA-Quito thread has been merged into "Good Deals...". Since deleting it would make other subsequent posts more confusing, I'm leaving it here.

Without in any way intending to be rude, may I suggest that perhaps this fare / question belongs in another forum?

Unless I'm missing something, it's an 8.3 cpm fare on an airline that doesn't seem to have any major partners. It might be useful as a positioning flight for FTers living in Ecuador, but as such should probably go in MR Discussion, if anywhere.
