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)

Outstanding fare. We can't commit to our thanksgiving trip just yet but if we could this would be it. The Azores is an amazing place!!!

Just booked BZE-LAX-BZE via MIA on AA for $349 RT AI for late May and again in September. it's 5.6cpm so not really worth it for a mileage run but pretty great fare for a trip to Belize. This fare is also available out of LA and other west coast cities. I fly this route a lot and I've never seen it this low.

yes, lots of good C. America fares available on AA currently...not just BZE...

RTB strikes me as an exceptionally good deal, as is LIR

Though not listed on TFD, I'm also seeing these fares out of DEN, as until it gets Smisked, it still is a UA hub for the moment

TGU was also mentioned...anyone able to price it out? Couldn't via SFO or LAX on ita. It's supposed to be a pretty awesome approach.


edit: found some, availability not as good and needed a 4 night stay. no thanks.

I saw in ITA, AM has non stop RT MEX-EZE for $750, I was looking in sep-nov, not sure if it is EOS.

not a good price for me but might be a good price for someone.

MH/Oneworld: LAX-NRT-KUL-MAA/BOM $800 ai RT (3.84 cpm)

LAX--NRT--KUL--MAA--KUL--NRT--LAX for $800. Lot of dates available in NOV/DEC 2014. Though I am not sure if all 20800 Miles will be credited to OneWorld if you fly Malaysian.

I just talked to Malaysian Airlines. They said I will get all miles credited to OneWorld.

BTW: You can also get to BOM. So people visiting Indian Subcontinent over Christmas -- this is a super deal.

You cannot credit miles to OneWorld. You can get them credited to their Oneworld alliance partners, but that would be dependant on fair class. I am not 100% confident that MH would know that detailed information on each of their partner airlines.

From ITA, it looks like this is pricing into N class, which earns zilch on AA.

OneWorld is not a frequent flyer program, it is an alliance.

The dates I tried book into N fare, which does not earn miles on AAdvantage or Flying Blue programs.
