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)

Yes but as far as know this shouldn't impact mileage earnings?

It might, I haven't looked to see if A3 generated miles for that fare class.

No. Booking Classes not eligible for accrual:I, R, X, N, G, P, W, Z

People need to chill about "no mileage with UA".

Good for TK members though

Alaska (and AA codeshare) has various dates through the summer LAX-ANC for $296/ai round-trip. If you've never been, I promise you Anchorage is more fun than you think. I went last year for Labor Day and will be doing it again this year. Really awesome city to spend a weekend.

I just booked this for under $160 (one way) in late March.

terrible flight schedule but decent CPM. wanted to get AS metal for the t-con portion, but it wasn't available on my needed date.

I'm seeing JFK-TXL-HEL 5/16-26 on Air Berlin for $314 on eDreams. Not sure what mileage accrual is for Oneworld partners. I'd be curious if anybody can find other cheap destinations or if it is HEL only.

Nice find, this appears to be missing the YQ. Have you booked this? What fare class did it book into?

Also, having played with dates and locations for a few minutes, it does seem like this is an isolated mistake.
