What's the cheapest international long-haul F you've ever seen?

Ok, so we all know mistake fares. If you have a good one (and hopefully we all know of the UA mistake already) that hasn't been talked about recently, pitch it, but otherwise let's keep this paid F.

So basically, I was just going through random Kayak and ITC searches and was finding some crazy expensive F fares which allows you to fly like 60 hours (total) in CX if for 45 grand.

Then, I thought to myself, what's the cheapest long-haul F that can be found. I personally am about to crash after a long day, but maybe FT has some ideas? Let's consider long-haul anything over 8 hours, so I wonder what's the cheapest paid F that FT has heard of, doesn't have to be live. By cheapest, I mean value/minute on plane or most of you would probably prefer cpm.

If anything like this has been done, sorry, just ignore my mini-rant.

Cheers,

My first trip to Thailand was in 2005. We flew on Malaysian Airlines: EWR-BKK (Via Stockholm and connected in KUL.) Total cost with taxes was $802.00 PP.

I thought it was a great deal.

(OOPS--you said F. This was Y. Sorry about that.)

The most recent one in mind probably is KE First RGN-BKK-ICN-LAX for 250 bucks one way

There's a thread for that on FlyerTalk.

I recently booked a one-way F on EK ATH-DXB-PEK for around $2,000 one-way. Given the quality of the F lounge in DXB and the A380 on the PEK segment, I found this to be a pretty good deal. I am sure that you could find a better one (not including mistake fares like the RGN extravaganza) if your only metric were cents-per-mile.
