If you have an unhealthy obsession with this industry (as I do), it’s very much worth checking out Flyertalk’s Mileage Run forum for two reasons:
1) You will feel better knowing there are people out there freakier than yourself; and
2) They post some crazy cheap fares.
The Hawaii fares from over the weekend that I posted (less than $270 r/t from the east cost to Hawaii) were from that board. Today, people have posted $58 round trips between Pittsburgh and Fort Lauderdale, as well as $218 r/t from Chicago to Anchorage. Worth checking out if you have no life. Like me.
