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'.

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 not a how to book a fare thread.

Seems to be gone, anyway. Best I can see on anyone is three March dates for $786-800 CMH-LON.

ORY - GRU/GIG $300 One way

ORY - GRU $300 Royal Air Maroc

https://www.skyscanner.com/transport...y-view#results


ORY - GIG $300 Tap Portugal

https://www.skyscanner.com/transport...y-view#results



EDIT: From Prague to GIG - $285

EDIT: Expedia:
Your ticket price changed from $284.90 to $722.90. The airline could not confirm the original price due to pricing or availability changes that occurred after we posted the latest prices on our site. Continue booking or look for a different flight.
However, exploremytrip still gives it...

Not a mileage run as such, but quite cheap.
Brazil to Falklands with Latam

example 31/03-08/04
Gig-Scl-Puq-Mpn $502 return
Gru-Scl-Puq-Mpn $508 return
19 hours each way

Puq-Mpn normally costs $600+ on its own

SEA-MAN on AA comes in around $598 RT. Can be routed through ORD or JFK for 767 or PHL for A330 among many other routings. I was able to get my wife this fare and confirm SWUs to business. Was cheapest west coast to EU I could find without a fuel dump... a steal for confirmed business class on a lie flat.

MF (Xiamen Air)
YVR-SYD 650 USD rt
​​SEA-SYD 650-750 USD rt

Easiest way to price out was looking at their website to find half round trip prices and then using google flights to book

SEA-SYD is for the time-rich only (or maybe people with family in Xiamen or Shenzhen), layovers of a day or two each way

Xiamen will pay for a hotel.

DL/AF/KL

DUS-BOS return, weekends, from as little as 294 direct from the airlines involved (shopping around with OTAs can shave another 20 off)

Predominantly available from September through EOS, but some dates available sporadically in summer too - easily found via Google Flights


Example here for weekend in September; books into Delta V

Bookable directly with AF or KL or DL

LISBON-LUANDA on TP, $212 one-way. Seems like a good way to get down there and then make your way back.

Indeed ...... IME it's cheaper to connect in NRT than to terminate there, though I've only been checking UA prices since NW and CO divorced.

Books into K class. Not the best to earn miles, but 2.6 cents/mile overall.

**EDIT** Also available out of CLE and CVG for same price and availability picks back up in the back half of the year...late Aug thru early Dec.
