EWR-IAD-MUC-OSL (same on return) for $546.40 and 11,166 miles = 4.8cpm

Although you might not earn UA miles on the LH intra-europe flight from MUC-OSL. Officially, you won't although I've had those segments credit in the past...YMMV.

Is there anything comparable on OneWorld? Be nice to see a match...
Good fare to Scandanavia!

Using this, it's pricing ex-IAH for $750 for weekend turns out into January. If I do this then, and combine with the HNL-MNL DO at the end of January, I'd go from commoner to MP Silver in <45 days. At 7.3 cpm it's not an awesome deal, but to get status back and RDMs before the change, could be worth it. Also, never been to Oslo.

I actually found some $400 deals OSL-EWR (~2500NOK), for February next year. Which would make about 3.6 cent per mile.

SAS just had a deal from SFO to Scandinavia for 3500NOK (which is roughly 567 USD).

And a good plan to file for bankruptcy when returning home... You may seriously consider a $100 per day budget excluding hotel and then you still won't be doing anything special.

Booked! Nov 28-dec 7. Anyone thinks United would ever offer such low fares if it wasn't for competition from Norwegian Long Haul? You can do the same trip (from JFK-OSL) for USD 440 in a B787...

This fare is available now or not until later this year? Do need to start earning serious EQM before much more time goes by.

Well, with the Norwegian 787 you know that you should expect a significant delay because Bjørn really doesn't have his long haul operations established in proper routines yet. So at least with United's on time record... um... no... wait...

I'm in Oslo right now and that would be my biggest turn-off for a MR to OSL
