Kansas City has been “on sale” for some time now out of LAX, but a $69 one-way base fare is also now available from SFO and SEA on both American and United. Delta has only filed a matching fare in the LAX-MCI market as of this posting. Travel must be completed by May 9, 2012.…

Mileage Run Opportunity: $169.20 nets 5,439 United EQMs IAD-GEG r/t

Well here’s a surprise. I’m used to seeing fare wars in major markets with a lot of competition, so did not anticipate finding this fare today on United offering a $63 one-way ticket from the Washington, D.C. group of airports to Spokane, WA. I haven’t spent too much time finding ideal connection opportunities for this…

Mileage Run Opportunity: $188.80 nets 6,712 United EQMs LAX-SFO-CLE-MCI r/t

United Airlines ended up matching the fare posted by American and Delta in the Los Angeles to Kansas City market, so here’s another mileage run opportunity post for today. This one is what I consider a “book it without thinking about it” fare since the CPM comes in at 2.81cpm. [Edited 2/8/12 7:00pm PST: United…

I haven’t been diligently checking mileage run opportunities lately given the FareCompare FlyerTalk tool is still down, but did take a look this morning at options using their map feature.

Mileage Run Opportunity: $248.80 nets 7,340 United EQMs PIT-IAD-SFO-TUS r/t

A reader emailed me asking about mileage run opportunities on United Airlines from his hometown, Pittsburgh. I do tend to be coast-centric as that’s where you get the biggest bang for your buck on mileage runs, but welcome other origins as well. If you’d like me to research options from your hometown, shoot me an…

Mileage Run Opportunity: $248.80 nets 6,838 United EQMs LAX-SFO-IAD-CMH r/t

I previously posted a similar mileage run opportunity, but the fare has come down and there are oodles of dates available for this 0-night run through end-of-schedule. Unfortunately, it’s only valid from Los Angeles or Columbus, so other West coast cities lose out this round. Alaska, American, Continental, Delta and United have the same base…

Mileage Run Opportunity/Reminder for IL & CA residents: $219.40 nets 7,384 American EQMs SFO-ORD r/t

This year is pretty much a wash, but why not load up early on easy EQMs (and RDMs) with American in 2012. Their Double Elite Qualifying Miles and Double Flight Miles promotion continues through March 31, 2012 and there are currently a huge amount of dates available from both San Francisco and Los Angeles. It’s…

[Edited: 12/8/11 at 6:00pm PST: This fare is no longer available] Ready to start mileage running in 2012? There appears to be a bit of a Columbus fare war out there tonight originating in Los Angeles (sorry San Francisco and Seattle, no love for you here). Alaska, American, Continental, Delta and United have the same…
