$541.32 with everything included
about $0.04 per mile.

Compare that with $1.50 per mile taking a cab in New York and you can't go wrong. Oh, and did I mention about listening to Ch. 9 too?

£10 per flight for numerous Belfast-Glasgow and Belfast Edinburgh flights when GO, BA and Easyjet were slugging it out on these routes. Easyjet gave free flights away for nearly six months, just charging the £5 tax each way. eventually Easyjet took over GO and BA withdrew from these routes.

Flew BWI-YYZ-BUF-BWI on US for $114.00.
Granted, it was on a Dash 8, but because we were delayed 2 hours leaving BWI, US gave us all a box lunch.
Can't get that nowadays, at twice the price!

Just booked a round-trip ROC-SEA ticket with AA for the first week of July. 236.50$ plus taxes. Two stops (ORD and STL) each way required to get the cheaper fare.
