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)

I found it on ITA and double checked on Orbitz. There are more dates but if you put 8/31 and 9/9 into Orbitz and search for a round trip SFO-CKG, you'll find it. It's a seperate deal on Air China than the SFO-HKG. Also the base fares are super low whereas the other deal its an issue with the YQ so yeah its a completely different thing, just weird coincidence I guess.

Also you can get sub $600 r/t on Air China to some other cities in China (WUH, FOC to name two)

Weird, it still shows up me. You aren't putting in CGK are you instead of CKG? I mis-typed that in a couple times and it'd show $1000+ until I realized what I did.

I couldn't find it on ITA either, so it's not you And to be sure, that does happen from time to time. In this case, I found the fare on one of the European Ebookers sites (at 753 euro, which is a bit above but very close to 999 USD)

ETA: Looks like this is the V-class VLRIE fare which allows one free stopover and one stopover at 50 euro.

Yes this one does not show on ITA. Google flights makes it easy to switch departure/ arrival dates.

I'm gonna guess it's the same Dublin-South Pacific fare that keeps popping up here and there. Pretty sure it only earns 50%, at least the old one does.

I leave on mine in November.
