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".

Anyhow, Alaska is currently offering double elite qualifying miles on all of their routes to Salt Lake City. They are also offering 5,000 bonus miles if you fly round trip through a "West Coast ski destination" twice by March 31st (must register your FF number on the requisite sites which I'll put below) before flying - of which Salt Lake City is one of those destinations.

Just booked SEA>SLC>SEA>SLC starting at 7 am and finishing at 6:30 for February 8th, $99 each way.

$99x4=$396
687 miles x 2 each way = 5,496 miles
5,000 non-status bonus miles for 2 round trips = 5,000 miles

As an added bonus, you'll be home for dinner.

http://www.alaskaair.com/www2/Promo/...2||&pid=AS1311

The double elite to SLC doesn't start until June...

To earn Double Elite-Qualifying Miles, simply register your Mileage Plan™ number below by June 15, 2014*, and travel between June 9, 2014 and August 1, 2014.

QR JNB-BCN $536 (limited FF earning)

QR JNB-BCN $536 13,784 miles/.039 (via DOH/per ITA)

Amazing fare, BUT fare basis (Q) doesn't earn full mileage (25%) in AA/QR/AS programs.

Seems widely available next few months. Also available slightly higher $614 in N (earns 50%)

Looking for AA codeshare

DL: FRA- ORD with stop in EZE $1250 ai (~20K EQM at ~6 cpm)

Just found this fare from various airports in Germany to ORD.

Just found FRA - ORD - EZE - FRA with about a two month stop in ORD and a week in EZE on the way back for $1250. Yields about 20K EQMs, depending on the city you leave from (I tried MUC and STR as well). The round trip fare FRA-ORD on DL is only about $100 cheaper, the round trip fare to EZE is the same.

BRU - DXB : 224 Euro:


There are some bizarre rates on the site. Sometimes he adds some taxes extra onto the promo tariff. You need to find the dates where he does not warn you about extra taxes.

How did I find the right one; Check cheapest price in a calendar view, the cheapest worked for me. The price on the select flight screen is not correct, so a lot of trial and error.


Book on: flyuia.com

Dates I travel : 10/2 - 17/2.

Found also :

25/2 - 06/3

Flights was booked, now waiting for e-tickets.

Where could I put Flyuia miles too?

I've also booked this flight (4/9 - 4/14). Fare was 294$ (OTA).

Did you already receive your e-ticket?

Besides Flying Blue, if you are more into *A, you could also credit the miles (50%) to TAP Victoria. Swiss and Austrian are also mentioned as partners, but since UIA is not a partner to their FFG M&M, it's not clear to me how to credit the miles to Swiss and Austrian.

I will go for TAP, so I can use the miles towards M&M awards.

Stupid question of the day: what are the "certain city pairs" covered by this thread? Are there any geographical limitations? Benefits of posting here/looking here vs just starting a new thread?

No geographical limitations, usually the deals posted here are above 4-5 cpm, or anything you wouldn't consider a mileage run.

just a bit of further clarification

cpm being eqm per mile, not total RDM per mile (for elites which often come with a 100% bonus)
