I consider any discounted fare a great find, but almost like it should have various sections based on percent off normal travel...
For instance, a month or so back, IAH to SEA was $150 round trip, which was at least 50% off normal fares, so could have a section of 50% off fares, then for lesser discounts, like say only 20% off normal rates, could have an area for that as well...
Or if there could just be a standard, where in the thread title people could post the discount percentage, or have a forum component able to show that?
I think it should be any deal - with something to highlight when it is a particularly good/mistake one.
As the US Supreme Court Justice Stewart (would have) said:
Although a good deal cannot be defined, you know it when you see it.
I like the idea of posting all "good" deals. Its a friendly forum so I'm much less worried about flaming. If there were a way to note especially rare finds, or those likely to be very time sensitive, that could be very useful.
I love the idea of posting all good deals. One thing that needs to be considered, if a lot of fares are going up on the board, and things fall to the second page easily, is there is a way to search, or spot fares of interest.
One more thing to consider in building this site. Lets say there is a good (but not crazy great) fare between HNL and JAX. So lets say I see a thread that reads DL: JAX to HNL $439 all in. I live in Tampa, I can appreciate that as a good fare, but I am not willing to drive to JAX for that price. Then on post 37 of that discussion, someone notes that the fare is good from MCO, TPA and RSW too. I would hate to miss the deal, becuase the thread title never got updated to show more cites.
I guess I am just saying, keep in mind people like me, who will not read every thread, but will certainly read every thread title and decide if I want to open it or not.
So you're saying that good deals, uh, arouse you?
The thought of Potter Stewart implying he was aroused in that case is a curious thought.
Some people have more curiosity than others.
