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)

AA: DFW-BWI, $155.

Looks like it only applies to the evening flights, and with a 3-day min. But, it's good for every day of the week except Sat.

Sample dates: 01MAY - 04MAY.

€360, Found this on ITA with sample dates June 3rd - June 10th. Minimum stay of 7 days, no stopover allowed. This flight has a return before the start of the World Cup Soccer, so that might be a reason for this low fare. Haven't checked any other dates. Flights I found were from DUS and booked into P-class, which earn 80% (5 cpm ($))

I see a number of fares for RIC/DCA/IAD/BWI-MHT/BOS under $200. I don't know if this is a normal price for these routes. There's quite a bit of variation depending on your dates and which airports you pick, but it looks like DL, US, UA, FL, and B6 are all in play.

RIC-BOS nonstop service starts March 6. Seems to be at least some availability on some of these routes through EOS, but the most deals are most frequent through April. Same-day turns available on some routings.

It is normal, and when B6 has a sale, ric-bos can be $130 ai, but I can normally find ric-bos for $160 most of the year and you can route thru nyc, ord, dtw or cle

Are the mistake fares on Vayama usually unbookable? I'm just wondering if I should be kicking myself for missing the $254 rt ai for VPS-DUB that Skyscanner briefly showed yesterday, or if I never had a chance.
