Qatar Airways: New York – Phuket, Thailand. $1,059. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

We normally would not have published a deal like this since the fare earns only 50% mileage with US Airways. But we decided to publish it after checking the normal price for this route ($1,300!). We will continue to publish great fares that are under 6 cents per mile and earn full mileage with major frequent flyer program, so today’s posting will be a rare event.

This fare works during January and February — in other words, during the best time to go.
