US seems to have a lot of great hub-Europe fares today. (As found on kayak.com/explore)

I just booked PHX-PHL/CLT-CDG for $555 (leave 4/12-4/14, return 4/16-4/20).

Also, PHX-PHL/CLT-BCN for $519 (leave 3/27, return 4/12, lots in between).

Also, PHX-PHL/CLT-MAD for $521 (similar dates to BCN).

Too bad I just booked a PHX-BCN/CDG-PHX for similar dates with CO for $750 . As much as I hate US and hate to give up my 1K upgrade priority, this is tempting to build up EQMs since most of my flying is from int'l/leisure. If only CO/UA could come close.

SEA-MNL $730 on EK via Dubai. I see it up until April and then again in Sept on Vayama. Some other decent fares to Asia too.

SEA-JNB 1170 is not to bad of price either.

SEA/SFO/LAX to BCN/MAD $508 AI. US Airways. Dates are pretty firm thus not really MR. March 25-28th Departures April 12th return.

Tried already to see if other dates worked, but doesn't seem like it.

For those AS people there is a Double RDM promo due to the new partnership between AS and EK

Link doesn't seem to be working correctly. Mouseover and you'll see what I mean.

Looked at the URL; it's malformed. Correct URL is http://www.alaskaair.com/www2/Promo/...spx?pid=EK1201

Also works from NYC via PHL to MAD and RSW via PHL to MAD in the same timeframe, $443 ai from RSW and $488 ai from NYC, have been eyeing it for a few days and just booked it tonight (ex-NYC for me, RSW for my dad). Other dates didn't seem to work for me either, 4/12 does seem to be the only cheap return date.

Any information about when you're seeing this fare? I've checked basically every time between now and June on matrix and can't get a fare that good between those cities on any carrier to show up.

Edit - Found it. Looks like you have to leave in the next four days or so. Too bad, I need to head out there in February or April-July.

EK discounted fare classes only earn 50% mileage if credited to Alaska Mileage Plan. so double that you would end up with the actual miles flown...still better than nothing.

The discounted fare classes only earn 50% credited to EK's Skywards program anyway, so no reason for EK to give AS flyers a better rate than their own customers.

DL: JFK-IST

not necessarily mileage run material, but DL has JFK-IST nonstop at $556 ai for many dates in february and march. T fares, full mileage earning, 10002 miles roundtrip. and a nice time of year to visit IST.
