The below is from our moderator (taken from the first post of the thread - bolding is mine). Feel free to add more if necessary / as needed.

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".

Typically much higher for NYC-OSL but 1 weekend when it goes down to $487 and decent CPM if fly via Canadia and Germany

This is a weird one: I can find this fare on delta.com, but only for Sat-Mon itins in winter.

Sample dates: 21MAR - 23MAR.

DL: SEA-AUS, $278 a/i 4.5cpm

Routing through DTW both ways gives you 6144 miles.

Dates found:
September 22-23
September 23-24
but there might be others for a few more dollars.

Double miles out of SEA gives you better (read: lower) cpm.

IAD:SFO AA/US $245 - $254 depending on routing A/I

You can do this on AA and/or US combo or alone

14 day advance, some blackouts of course in the fall

I tried 11/13-15 which is when I need to go

most of these route through CLT and/or DFW (assumption is you get 500 epm/rdm on the IAD/CLT segment) otherwise that is only 322 miles

roughly 5253 if you do a connection at CLT one way and DFW the other

or 4.66 cpeqm/2.33 cprdm
