    Tuesday/Wednesday departures
    Until 11/14

    under 3.0 cents per mile possible. Have not played around to see if 0 day turns are possible.

    Sample Date: October 16th - 23rd for EWR-LAX.

    Requires a one night stay according to fare rules. Fare is only valid for Tuesday or Wednesday departures. I can't find much with just a one night stay. Maybe book a ticket on another airline inside of it? EWR-BUR is giving me the most results right now.

    This sale is nuts. There are so many city pairs -- seem like someone was doing an update and forgot a 1 in front of the fare.

    Nope, it is pretty deliberate. The blackout date restrictions are quite different from anything I've seen in a long time, if not ever before. BDL-LAS is also giving some decent results. US doesn't often get this cheap for MRs due to the relative positions of their hubs and DCA.

    That's pretty typical for US Airways.. their fare rule always has tons of blackout dates.. But the fact that it's pretty much all city pairs leads me to think that they screwed up the 4PM upload to the GDS.

    I still think that this is deliberate. However, the fact that the two lowest fares on ExpertFlyer divide evenly has me thinking...

    Possible semi-match to WN's "3 million likes" sale? Think that one was Tuesday departures only.
