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)

Nothing for Avianca Lifemiles either. Still a great price but shame it doesn't accumulate any miles for anyone.

I was looking for a route to circle the globe traveling west. Came across this fare, its idiotic that they're not allowing HNL-DEL via any asian hubs. Its cheaper to fly 3/4 th of globe then flying 1/4 th.

I believe the TK W fares accumulate to TK and no one else. I'm certain on the no one else, I'm just not certain if TK credits them or not.

DL UA KL AF. ORD-WAW $677 round trip.

2/15 out, 2/17 back.

Probably could get more miles with more connections, but haven't figured that out yet.
