Mileage Run Deals forum

Recently we've been seeing some mileage run "deal" threads that really are just regular transcon fares. Could we put a cap on mileage run deals to say under 4cpm for Domestic and 5cpm for International and the rest can go in the good deals thread? A domestic trip for 5cpm really doesn't qualify for a new thread in mileage runs.

You may wish to bring up your issues with the moderators of that forum... they are very responsive to member suggestions.

Do understand that what you consider a "regular" deal may not be for others.

As wharvey notes, 4cpm to someone based out of LAX may be a lot for a transcon, but for someone based out of PQI or YYT, that's may be a heck of a deal.

Or even ANC!

I hope someday we can implement some technology to allow sorting or even email alerts of activity in MRD that is relevant to one's home airport. That would allow people to screen out deals they don't find useful.
