Happy 2016!

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:
  • When posting 'Good deals' fares: 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.
  • Note that you can subscribe to this thread: go to "Thread Tools" at the top of the thread and click on "Subscribe to this thread".
  • This is not a fare request thread. Any fare requests will be deleted.

This is also available from IAD for $460. Keep in mind that this earns no miles on AA, as it books into T.

The return YYZ-BKK-YYZ is $805 CAD and, as far as I can tell, books into V, which, again as far as I can tell, is 100% for AA.

19000 miles.

I'm not a milage runner, so I'm not 100% on the above.

You actually bring up a good point. Playing around with the dates, you can find a simple RT for not a bad price, and it will earn full miles on AA. On a different note, I would assume that these fares earn miles on EY, and would therefore be great if you want MRs solely on EY.

Keep in mind that's the base miles only (RDM.) Etihad flights do not earn elite qualifying miles and no bonus miles for AA elites either.

Also, you can get back across the Atlantic to the US pretty cheap as well. Booking one way anywhere from $250-$500 o/w from LGW/LHR to get to major US hubs for the rest of the year on Norwegian or Iceland.
