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".

Although, there are 24-hr hold/refund policies from all the airlines now, right?

Wanted to note that the $310 price is now available for all November departures, not just Sundays.

I'm getting it to price at 259.50 SEA-IAD-BUF-EWR-SEA, 5280 miles, 5707 if you're an elite due to the 500 minimum to/from BUF for a cool 4.5cpm (4.9cpm for non-elites). Red-eye out on Nov 14th (friday) returning saturday afternoon, though availability is pretty good some tuesdays and a couple other sporadic dates towards the end of the year. No same-day turnaround if you're starting in SEA

Any idea where to park those miles with SATA?

Almost nowhere
Apart from SATA, you can credit them to Tap/Victoria but booking is in X class and you'll only get... 10%

IAH-MUC-SKG (Thessaloniki) RT $744. 12,2xx RT. 6.0cpm

October dates, looks like you can do as little as 16 hrs in SKG and turn around.

UA/A3. A3 segments book into O, 100% on UA. I'm sure the crazy routers could play with this one to squeeze it down a little.

The folks at theflightdeal noticed a few weeks ago that bos-iah-muc-skg is as low as about $693 r/t, slightly better cpm because of the extra BOS-IAH segment.

Burn. However, the 36 hour est flight time on the return isn't the sexiest.. per their screenshot.

Nice, quite a few good deals, more miles if you route through SFO on the way there. Thank you!
