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".

You can turn that around (BWI-DFW RT) for $135 on AA, but departures seem to be limited to the 7:10 PM (most) Wednesdays with returns on the 7:35 PM Tuesday or Wednesday. Shortest possible turnaround appears to be Dec 10 - 13.

DL has BOS-DFW on sale for $232 RT. Not especially great ... unless you route through SLC. BOS-SLC-DFW is 6,188 MQM at that price, which is 3.75 cpm. ITA has this available, but not seeing that routing on delta.com, and Hipmunk hasn't worked with ITA codes for me for weeks. Any ideas on how to book?

You didn't provide dates, and I wasn't able to find any that work, but you could try searching for it segment-by-segment in Google Flights using the dates you found on ITA. That should provide a direct link to delta.com. Nice find if it's bookable.

ITA has it for most days in November. Google prices it at $436, though. So maybe phantom availability.

EDIT: Called Delta and fed the DM desk the dates and they were able to book at the $231.20 rate. Have to take the 6 AM flight there and back, which isn't much fun, but one of the few DL attack fares all year under 4 CPM.

I'm scheduled on this - out on the 14, back on 18. If anyone else is doing it - I'm travelling solo and would be interested in joining up to tour OSL.

Are you doing nonstop or more creative routing to maximize mileage? If latter, what routing?
