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".

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
Similar fare except cheaper ex-ORD

$815 r/t
K fare
UA or NH

More than two weeks in JED ????
Even with an FOC ticket I wouldn't recommend to go there
Except if you want to make a gift to your worst friend

PHL-MIA-LIM-CUZ on AA/US/LA $715-$850.

One could probably find other origination cities as well as the ticket is split into xxx-MIA, MIA-CUZ. [MIA-CUZ is $499]

Sample dates I booked, 4/24-4/28 (arriving home the 29th) $751 p/p.

Not really a great fare to Peru itself, but considering the cost involved with going to CUZ, it's fairly decent, and one of the cheapest I've seen out of PHL.

AA: BDL-LAX for $194; 3.9 cpm March 1 only

AA: BDL-LAX (or reverse) for $194; 3.9 cpm
March 1 only

This is an AA weekend getaway fare good on weekend of March 1 only.
Must fly Sat. 3/1 westbound and return on Monday 3/3, though there is a redeye out of LAX at 1:15am Monday morning.

So it requires 1.5 day stay at minimum, and unfortunately bonus miles on this route have expired. Still a good run if you wanted to spend a day or 2 in sunny California.

UA: PHL-SMF $128 one way all in

sample date May 9th

4.3 cpm routed via IAH. may be possible to add more connections (eg LAX or SFO)

$133 from LGA which is the "standard" rate, but some scattered dates at $127 are available (also via IAH). PHL hasn't been quite as cheap lately so this is a good deal.

Thanks SFO777. GREAT FIND out of DEN...so much so that it arguably deserves its own thread! Always appreciate finding AA deals out of DEN (which seem to be more limited thus far this year). FWIW, DL is matching via ATL.
