Last Minute deal on Air North (4N): CAD 149 each way (USD ~115):

Whitehorse YXY to Vancouver YVR August 3rd
Vancouver YVR to Whitehorse YXY August 5th or 6th

There are 2 flights on each of these days for that price. You can book this on flyairnorth.com as oneway or as return. The price *includes* checked luggage of up to 40 kg (2 pieces) and on-board food (sandwich, warm cookie, beverages - beer costs extra AFAIK, cash only). Like the good old times!

Book until August 2nd, 23:59h Pacific Time. There is no mileage earning with Air North.

Of course you can stay longer, but the flights on other days than those listed above will cost more.

I'm not finding this for this fall. Was it a quick (0-1 day) turn?
Thanks,

I was able to price it out on Delta that day for 5-6 days in March (but fare rules had both fall and spring dates). Didn't try same day turnaround.

I had saved the link for the itinerary (on Delta.com) and just checked it... the price jumped to $2560!

Some scattered JFK-AMS basic economy dates in the $450-$470 rt range on Delta in September. I think there may be some system glitches going on since standard main cabin was pricing in the $5K range, but it's letting me get as far as the passenger information screen uneventfully

Update: Seems to be dead.

YVR (Vancouver, Canada) via CDG (Paris, France) to MRU (Mauritius) and back, from about CAD 816 to about CAD 900 - that price can include a stopover in Paris!

YVR-CDG/CDG-YVR nonstop flight on Air Canada (not a codeshare)
CDG-MRU/MRU-CDG nonstop flight on Air France or Air Mauritius (AF coded)

Ticket issued on Air France ticket stock with an Air France fare, but the AC segments don't seem to be codeshares.

AC-segments are W class
AF-segments are V class (low earning)

Availability reported in September, October, and January by
Vancouver to Mauritius or Madagascar - $818 CAD roundtrip including taxes | add Paris for $33

Example for itinerary with stopover in Paris:
YVR-CDG September 30
CDG-MRU October 3 or 5
MRU-CDG-YVR October 12

Seen for CAD 898 on flighthub and CAD 906 on Expedia.
