    Am looking for a good AA mileage run out of ORD for the fall...any suggestions ($.05/EQM or less preferred).

    Thanks!

    Based on data that we have tracked -- there aren't that many AA mileage runs out of ORD. The best deal at the moment from ORD is MAA for $923 for November travel. 18K miles via LHR @ 5CPM exactly.

    Thanks for the suggestions tfd & rwoman...haven't been able to find the ORD-MAA $923 fare yet (lowest is $1087 in Oct) but will keep my out out for it.

    The fare is valid for November 1st - December 9th travel. Fare expires 8/20.

    Couldn't get the ORD-MAA $923 fare and doubt it's available any longer (expires today). Did book a 24hr hold on the following MR today ($0.63/EQM or $0.53EQM if I drop a 15% off coupon I received from AA):

    Oct. 21 (DEP ORD 7:40 pm)
    ORD-SFO (737) 1,846 EQM
    Oct 22
    SFO-MIA-SJU (757) 3,630 EQM (1hr20min layover in MIA)
    Oct. 23 (ARR ORD 11:15 pm)
    SJU-MIA-DFW-SFO (757 1st/2nd seg; 737 3rd seg) 3,630 EQM (1hr15min layover in MIA, 1hr20min layover in DFW)
    SFO-ORD (737) 1,846 EQM

    Total EQM: 10,952

    Will need to stay overnight in SFO (outbound) and SJU (return)...SPG hotels @~ $350 all-in for both nights (which would extend my gold status for next year).

    This would be my first MR so I'm wondering if I should hold out for something better later in the year (i.e., 1 or 2 day turn-around vs. 3) or hope AA drops a DBL EQM Q4 surprise.

    Would appreciate any thoughts/suggestions/hints?

    Thanks!
