Happy 2017!

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'.

UA fares gone it appears. Was about 388 through September. As low as 340 on some OTAs via aggregators. I cannot find them anymore though.

SAN-ORD late Jan into early Feb. Looks like midweek departure with Saturday stayover. ~150-170 USD range.

Hopefully it's useful to some. Sample dates (1/26 Thursday - 1/29 Sunday):

https://goo.gl/flights/u4Io

Looks like a new feature of google flights

$90 fare increase likely in 10h Show less
The currently bookable fare for this flight expires soon. The new fare will likely be more expensive. Historically, expected fare increases on similar flights have been accurate 90% of the time.
Also I found one same day return for $140 on Feb 1. Other same days sporadic throughout this timeframe for a few bucks more:

https://goo.gl/flights/M5uQ

Also some other "good deals" (also I think ending today) SAN-BOS with good weekend timings (leave Friday come back Sunday) for 5 consecutive weeks Jan/Feb for $244. Not really an MR but not too bad either at about the mid 4cpm range. Same day returns available.

Also SAN-EWR in that same timeframe for $287.

United out of IAD and BOS for a lot of days in February $37-$50 one way.
RT IAD-BOS $101
RT BOS-ORD $100

Or you can do creative routing like I did for $230 - IAD-BOS-ORD-IND-IAD (multicity IAD-BOS, BOS-ORD, ORD-IAD). Leaving Saturday morning, arriving at IAD 8pm in the evening.
