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".

SAT-LED via DTW & AMS; one-night stay in AMS on return

June 10-July 1

I was looking for flights for my family & somehow managed to come up with $864 each for 6 people, smack-dab in the middle of the White Nights!! Insane! Did flexible search on the above dates & there were a handful of availabilities for $864. Just did the search again & it's at $881.

On second thought, I decided to look up prices for a single individual & I got $876 instead of $864, with the return leg on Aeroflot via SVO instead of KLM via AMS.

Phoenix to Chicago $212 [DL]

Phoenix (PHX) to Chicago (ORD) on Delta, $211.20. I believe this also works for ORD-PHX.

Depart T, W, Sa through Dec. 17.

Some sample dates:
Depart Sept. 13 or 16. Return Sept. 20.
Depart Oct. 1. Return Oct. 4.
Depart Oct. 18. Return Oct. 25.
Depart Oct. 21. Return Oct. 25, 28, or 29.
Depart Nov. 12. Return Nov. 15.

Booking class: V

Stops: various - ATL both ways earns the most miles but this is not available on all dates. Other stops include MSP, DTW, and SLC (SLC gives pretty good miles also).

Miles flown / earned: ~3,600 - 4,375 depending on itinerary chosen

Cents per mile: 4.8 - 5.8

To get 4.8 cents per mile, you have to find dates with stops at ATL both ways.
