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".

I found it for $823 from CLT - GRU. Obviously not a great deal but you could leave Friday night and early Sunday morning (2am) so just one night of a hotel and no missing work

Standard answer: International fare deals are rarely, if ever, the same price in reverse.

And availability is wide open! That is an AMAZING fare for BOG.

That is probably worth posting to its own thread.

AA/US: RDU-SLC from $207 a.i.

AA/US: RDU-SLC from $207 a.i.

Both the AA and US fare rules stipulate that all flights must be operated by US.

The fare is good through EOS (but an additional $47 surcharge is added for travel after August 9) and any day of the week. There is no minimum stay and tickets can be booked as one-ways.

Availability is quite good, "same day" turns often seem to require the red-eye on the return from SLC.

Example:

April 26 RDU-CLT-PHX-SLC
April 27 SLC-PHX-CLT-RDU

$215.- , 4,810 miles without elite minimum for RDU-CLT, 4.5 cpm

A similar fare (from $223 a.i.) is available for RDU-PHX but is only good through May 21 and is not valid for Friday/Sunday travel.

UA: MSP-CGK, $976rt ai

UA: MSP-CGK, $976rt ai, routing through ORD and NRT gets 20,788 miles w/500 mile min. NRT-CGK operated by NH -- I'm pretty certain NH K earns on UA (assuming that UA K maps to NH K).

Can also route via other UA hubs, best is through EWR for $1019 and just under 4.5cpm.

Routing rules allow a stopover for $100.

Available through to early May
