Just noticed this fare between PDX-AUS on DL for $162 a.i. (available as a one-way for $81)...available on Sat/Tues/Wed....in the 3 cpm range depending on routing. I'm waiting for a UA match since I don't collect SkyPesos, but for those who do, enjoy!

Good find. I'm only seeing flights available the first weekend in May (5/3-5/4 and 5/4-5/7) so this will probably go fast unless UA matches.

Yes, I see any weekends from Austin and hope UA would match, I have no need for Delta miles either

The $81 fare was available for the PDX-AUS redeye via MSP on Aug. 31st (Labor Day weekend). C'mon UA...match this one, especially since it doesn't involve hub cities with DL or UA.

I agree....it's like seeing those great deals on airfarewatchdog.com and finding out they're on Spirit...ok, maybe not THAT bad, but there is a reason why they're called "skypesos"

Looks like less availability AUS-SAN-AUS vs the reverse but 01-02JUN you can do (per ita, haven't tried booked on DL.com) AUS-SLC-LAX-SAN-ATL-AUS for 4880 MQM at $178

26MAY AUS-ATL-SAN-ATL-AUS for 5409 MQM at $210 or 3.8cpm.

Everything I'm seeing for the ~$176 fare is requiring a connection in SLC at least one direction if you start in AUS which doesn't make it quite as good but still not too bad for summer availability.

Smile Thank you!

Booked 3 1-day round-trips in Sept, all weekends, $179, UA. It's not the greatest cpm, but given it's PDX (am convinced nothing happens out of PDX), I'll take 4.3!

Nothing happens out of PDX? You must have missed out on the PDX-IAD/DCA fare sale about a month ago....$189 a.i....and then last year we had the ultra-cheap PDX-LGA/JFK fares of around $140 a.i.....and just last Jan/Feb we had the PDX-MCI fares for around $150 a.i. that allow routings via SFO and CLE....I think we've gotten far more MR opportunities than many other cities.

Yeah, I missed all of those, as I'm relatively new to the MR game (spent the last 3 years on hotel elite status while remaining neutral on airline). And I suppose I am comparing PDX to its' "big" sister to the north (SEA) or SFO (where my BF & status-chaser-in-crime resides). I swear I find fare deals there 2x/week!
