Yeah, hard to describe it as a true "mileage run," but it is an excellent fare. Seems to be good through mid-May. As a CO plat, subtracting the value of the OnePass miles I would earn (if I value them at a penny a piece), I could travel roundtrip to Spain (nonstop) for $200 all in. That's a pretty darn good deal.
