What was the actual price paid, though? PQD doesn't always equate to that, especially when there are multiple segments involved.

Back when DL had its Boxing Day mistake sale, I flew BOS-ATL-HNL-LAX-BOS in first for $184.76, which was 1.16 cents per MQM

The 2015 AA business class mistake fare was about 1CPM when credited to Alaska IIRC. That was a great trip.

Most people don't use PQD to calc CPM, but since you opened that door:

Jan 2017
EWR-HKG
EQM: 8,060
PQD: $88
CPM: 1.1

SIN-SFO
EQM: 8,444
PQD: $107
CPM: 1.2

Mar 2017:
EWR-PEK
EQM: 6,832
PQD: $50
CPM: 0.7

Many FTs read this thread for deals, not to know who wins! Shame, shame on you.

I do get negative CPM, i.e. Delta pays me to take a flight and gives me miles to boot. I fly regularly from Germany to MSP and back. In the summer the RT fares are between 1000 and 1400 Euros. If I tag on a MSP - (GRU, SCL, EZE LIM) - MSP flight over a weekend, depending on the dates the total may go a low as 950 Euros. That South America flight nets me about 10,000 MQM at a net cost of 0 to -400 Euros.

No, that's a different calculation. You're not getting paid to take that flight, you're getting a reduced rate. This is like a consumer saying, "oh this car is so cheap.. I got $40,000 off!"... well it's a Lamborghini and it still costs $400,000.
