    Maybe they've cut capacity enough that they don't have to unload seats at fire-sale prices??

    Also, they have matched sales from others in some markets or launched their own sales in others. The MCO-GIG deal was one they started earlier this year, as was the NYC-Chile for $900ish in C (not quite a MR but still a darn good fare).

    There are very few summer MRs. Most deals that are posted now are for travel until til mid-June and from late August on.

    As for AA deals, there's ebb and flow in terms of who is having deals. In January and Feb, we tracked significantly more AA deals than DL or UA. Now it is just UA and DL's turn.

    Yeah, I've been doing some searching and haven't found any amazing AA deals at all. The LAX/SFO-SJU deal a few weeks ago was the last great one that I saw. Hopefully something will pop up. The best I can find is 6.9 cpm in November for LAX-BOS... hardly a great MR.

    I need to hit 15K more base points by end of July in order to keep EXP and haven't found any good deals. IAD-DFW-ANC for $802 was the best I could do, and that's not a good deal, even with the 100% mileage bonus. :(

    Points or Miles? Points on cheap tickets would be 30K miles of flying. Points, can be as little as 10K of flying in Full Y or I/J/A/F

    Points. :( Which is why it's been so hard to find worthwhile flights. And unfortunately, only base points count for my EXP challenge, so didn't get any extra credit for my biz class codeshares to Chile.
