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".

Oct 27 - Nov 2

BA MAN-SYD 778.71 r/t a/i (Roughly $1,271 USD)

Routing is MAN-LHR-SIN-SYD-SIN-LHR-MAN

(Booked this for an AA mileage run that gives me 4 nights in Sydney)
21,646 EQM without 500-mile minimum comes out to 5.87 cpm, with 500-mile minimums it's 22,344 miles at 5.67 cpm

Didn't see any other dates, but didn't look too hard.

VX: DAL-DCA $87.10 o/w

Just booked DAL-DCA on VX @ $87.10 o/w, 27 Oct 2014. 1184 miles. By no means a mileage run, but exceptional fare for DCA.

You can do DFW - BWI for $134 nonstop round-trip on AA. Which works out to be cheaper per leg.

For any NYC/CT/BOS cats, there has been a slew of non-stop AA flights from BDL (Hartford) to MIA for around 177$ beginning of next year. Worked out perfect for my needs and I think it's a pretty awesome deal for a MIA trip.

Edit: r/t too

This fare is already on blogs (from more than 12 hours), so hurry up. I got successfully ticketed, but you may not be so lucky later in the day. It's 100% sure ebookers will try to cancel as many of those tickets as possible.

around 2.8 cpm united V booking class

Also seems you can make along stop over in NY and spend only a night in Columbia. I haven't gotten any dates to work, though.

Not sure if post worthy (or old), but lots of availability on Saudia for MXP-JED-JNB for $497 RT a/i over the next few months. Think its accrues 100% to DL.

Lowest I'm seeing BDL-Florida in 2015 on AA is around $205 RT, with only scattered avails...most dates are higher??

It does accrue 100% RDM + medallion bonuses through 12/31/14, but it only gets 50%-75% for MQM and $0 for MQD.

Use sky scanner. Forgot to mention that, these are coming from fare geek and other 3rd parties

Also may be "US" flights I forgot. Sorry for the scatter-brain
