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".

If so, I'm slowly figuring it out.

Sorry about the pocket texting. Somehow the keys got stuck. A buddy of mine and fellow FT texted me on the goofy thread, had no idea what he was saying until I saw it, this was while I was at fitness and wellness center for my cardio rehab.

YOW to BRU for as low as $684 Canadian (about 484€/$613US) with US Airways.
Simply a "good" deal.

Connect in Philly (and possibly Charlotte NC as well)

Sample dates: Nov 20th to Nov 26th.

EDIT: Also, over $400 of this fare is YR if booked with US Airways or YQ if booked with BA. For those who know how to play with such things.

Looks availability is gone unfortunately. When I posted I could price it out on UA.
Edit: other dates around that time are still available on UA for the same price as of 9:10AM EDT, try flexible search.
