"Good Deals" in Economy Class - Excellent Fares between certain city pairs - 2015

Happy 2015!

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

A few requests for posting in the thread:
  • When posting 'Good deals' fares: please post the city pairs/airport codes and pricing in the body of the post and not just in the post title as it isn't visible for those reading it on mobile devices
  • Note that you can subscribe to this thread: go to "Thread Tools" at the top of the thread and click on "Subscribe to this thread".

DL: SAN-OMA $208 rt

In February, SAN-OMA is available on Delta for $208 roundtrip.

Sample date and routing:

SAN-DTW-OMA-DTW-SAN on Feb 1-2 for 5198 status miles at 4.25cpm
But watch out for the horrific CRJ-200 segments between OMA and DTW!

DL: SAN-AUS $235 rt

DL: SAN-AUS $235 rt

In February, SAN-AUS is available on Delta for $235 roundtrip.

Sample date and routing:

SAN-ATL-AUS-ATL-SAN on Feb 1-2 for 5394 status miles at 4.42cpm
If a Diamond flew this in 2014, he would earn 12,136 redeemable miles.
Now, he only earns 1947 redeemable miles for this trip!

Despite the mileage haircut, I booked the above. I just have to go back for lunch at Texas Chile Parlor. It's just steps from the Capitol, and an easy ride by transit bus from the airport.

Hmm OMA in Feb for 1947 miles, or stay in SAN, that is a difficult question.

Exactly why I've lost a lot of desire to fly "for fun" starting in 2015. If there's somewhere I'm dying to eat at, etc. I'll make it into a larger trip instead.

RE: IAH to SIN $840

Best price I have found so far from IAH to SIN around 20K & 4.1CMP; available in Jan & Feb and great for MR before 3/1 UA change.

WAS-ASU via GRU on DL/G3 was around a couple times last year for $600-something I think. Keep an eye out for that one!

We can see that UA is responding to the attack by DL on the UA hubs by now targeting DL hubs with discounted flights to Europe.
