Yes, it’s limited dates and a lot of Tuesday-Wednesdays, and yes, it’s Spirit and all that entails (read up on it if you haven’t flown them before…they take no-frills to a new level). But most of their sales aren’t as across-the-board as this (domestically, at least), and the long-route RTs will go fast so ya better hurry.
And yes, this can also be a mileage play, especially if you’re a cardholder. I’m in for 2 ATL-LAS RTs at $46.20 each ($68.20 for non-members) with 24 hours on the ground (could do it as a turn but didn’t want to), which gives 3,400 miles or so for each RT, which doesn’t sound like much but looms larger if you can use the off-peak awards that start at 5K miles RT. The next off-peak period starts 9/9, and they’re concentrated in fall, Jan./Feb, and spring. Flexibility helps. Their program isn’t as generous and is much more mediocre for non-cardholders, but you can redeem for magazines and sometimes there are 10K one-ways.
Jump on it if interested.

Not the greatest deal in the world but if people are looking for some runs before the end of the year (and have Tuesdays or Wednesdays open) this could be an ok option.

Seems to work for Wed/Thur departures and Mon-Thur return starting in mid-september through end of november (and maybe the first weekend of december?). SEA forces you through YVR and the 10-across Y, while starting from ORD can use YYZ as a connection and the 9-across Y.
Also, fare code is L, so only 50% earning for UAMP and Aeroplan, but still a pretty good fare. This fare can only be purchased/ticketed through AC (so no UA stock for those of you looking for PQD), but the US-Canada portion can be an AC codeshare on UA metal (so a few PQD)
ETA: As low at $518 of returning on Fri-Sun

I have been looking at a trip to Southeast Asia for awhile, and has found that the open-jaw in OneWorld / AA seems to offer the most value. You can try a combination of dates, and outbound/inbound cities, but here’s a couple that I have found today:
You can always get a pretty good deal from a budget airline from CGK to SIN (Scoot, AirAsia which had a $5 sale awhile back for a 2016 departure, TigerAir, etc.)
The lowest I have seen was back in June, with an open-jaw return from PVG.
Hope this is helpful.
