Interesting. 32.5k is exactly what the old MilesAAver price used to be for transcon 3 class F... had a few nice SAN-LAX-JFK runs at this price (with LAX-JFK in F) about 7-8 years ago.

Nice to see a non-hub flight out of STL, but do people really purposely book Saturday to Saturday trips to ensure their round trip is on the same airline? Given the number of these 1x weekly routes...

You could easily fly 50k BIS miles in J, get 100k EQMs, and barely break $15k on discount J fares (on AA metal). At the same time, a road warrior could buy cheap, advance discount Y fares, and still...
