Doesn't seem to work quite as well in the other direction. AUS-ORD-SEA-ORD-AUS coming in at $222 A.I. for a few days in November. With a 5% discount code good for SEA that gets you down to about 3.9 cpm. Going through DFW gets the price down to $196 but many fewer miles, so cpm is closer to 4.5.

I already requalified for EXP but if one is close and wants to top it off, this is probably about as good as it will get out of AUS for the rest of the year. I see Nov 10 and 13 available.

Yep, I did two of these earlier this month at the $222 price point. Wish I had waited, but I'm now 5800EQM short of requalifying so need a bit more miles out of my final run than this offers. If anyone has a same-day turn out of SEA for less than $255 for 5800 EQM, PM me!

Thats a great Aus fare. This one is not less but it's more miles..Alaska Sea-BLI-HNL, same day turns, tons of Dec dates (Or connect PDX) $378 ai and about 6400 miles with the extra 500 min on the connection. Of course use your AA number but you can book directly on AS and do this don't have to book on AA. Sure you know, but AS also gives you Elite Seat access for AA elites no ug but exit row to HNL and back!

I cant find SEA-ORD-AUS-ORD-SEA anymore, but SEA-ORD-AUS-DFW-SEA is available at the 196ai price. That's 4.03 cpm, still pretty good.

Shockingly, this is *still* available; $194 a.i. on 04,05,11 and 12 December, same-day turns. The promo code gets it down to $183 or whatever.

SEA-ORD-AUS-DFW-AUS 3,952 miles (or about 8k with AATHX) is easy to find; there was at least one SEA-ORD-AUS-ORD-SEA left when I got there. Perfect for topping up the account!

Now, what is there good to eat at the AUS airport?
