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)

You sure can get BA Avios for this however you won't get many. I couldn't find the booking class on this but I am betting based on a quick ITA search it is in N which would earn 30% of flown miles.

19326 * 0.30 = 5798
Flown miles * 30% = Avios Received for flight

$888/5798 = 15CPM

15CPM is pretty awful for a mileage run. I know AAdvantage has the same earning structure so would not be good for AA flyers either.

It's not supposed to be a mileage run. NTM, leaving from YYZ, this is quite a good fare.
