Happy 2014!

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:

-members posting their deals 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 (ETA: ...or in email alerts)

-some members may be unaware that you can subscribe to this thread and to do that you can go to "Thread Tools" at the top of the thread and click on "Subscribe to this thread".

Spirit --one cent base fare

Purchased a one way ticket on Spirit from Chicago O'Hare to Minneapolis for one cent plus tax: came to $11.01 a.i. for saturday Feb. 8th.

Good fare if you are going to The Cities for the weekend. As a mileage run the problem is that unless you have the Spirit Airlines credit card, Spirit miles are worthless.

While it's not a $0.01 base fare I found a lot of good $9 base fare from MYR-LGA for Feb--might have to jump on one. $40 all-in RT for a trip to NYC is hard to beat....

I'm seeing the following still:

LBE - DFW = $80-$88 RT in February and early March
FLL - Puerto Rico = $140ish RT in early March

Not as good as the $0.01 base other had, but might be of interest to someone else.

Just be aware of current hostilities in Kiev before booking. I've seen conflicting reports on how widespread the protests are, so I suggest doing your own research before you book.

Conflicted destinations are always bit cheaper.

DL and AS have matched for IAD and DCA. Available on the AS nonstop between DCA-LAX for a quick-turn MR on several Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

It's a one-way fare on DL, which makes WAS-SLC-LAX and back available for a quick turn by booking as one-ways (violates MCT at LAX so it can't be booked as a roundtrip, but the same plane operates SLC-LAX-SLC).
