    I found the one below after a blog reader asked about originating in Pittsburgh and flying United. I'll try to remember to put them here on MilePoint, too, after blogging about them. The 31-min connection is obviously tight in SFO, but there are earlier PIT-IAD and IAD-SFO flights for potential standby. Also, there are flights on some days available that'll get you into TUS at 12:15am and if you're a hard core runner and kill a few hours, there's a 5:45am flight out to avoid a hotel.

    Routing: Pittsburgh to Dulles to San Francisco to Tucson roundtrip
    Travel period: Now through end-of-schedule
    Dates I found available: 1/19, 30, 31; 2/1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 20, 22, 28, 29
    Number of nights stay: 1
    Day of week restrictions: None
    Fare basis: GA7CN, 7-day advance purchase
    Fare: $248.80 all-in
    Elite Qualifying Miles earned: 7,340 (assumes 500-mile minimums)
    Cost-per-mile (CPM): 3.39

    Example itinerary:

    Nice find. The only thing I do not know if I want to drive to or fly to/from PIT on any of those dates in the winter.

    It's also good through end of schedule, but I only looked at the next couple of months. I have oodles of trips these next several weeks through cold weather cities, but (crazily) enjoy it when IRROPS strike.
