MSP-CLT, on AA from $103, same day turns (3.9cpm)

Bit of an interesting mileage run opportunity. (Are we still calling it mileage running even though it's dollar spend?...) In any case, it's a decent opportunity to get some EQMs.

$103 from MSP to CLT via PHL on one leg. Can't do anything to make it a day trip or 1-nighter. Just pure flying.

Lots of availability in October and November. Some in September and August.

Basic economy! Not well recommended as a mileage run, maybe as cheap fare?

AA is doing miles per dollar spend anyway.

I think BE still gets full EQMs, doesn't it?

No.

There are a ton of cheap fares we can post that are in basic economy. Heck - there are a ton of Trans-Atlantic fares this time of year for as little as $250. But if they're in basic economy, they do NOT earn full mileage. At best, half mileage.

Shuom, relax! No harm done. Good fare but not as a MR.

Funny that it is not available CLT - MSP.
What do CLT based passengers do?
