2. Great fare deal $113.30 round-trip from Baltimore to Memphis and vice versa via Air Tran. Additionally, if you want to travel on United Airline, they have $134 ticket routing through Chicago and Houston. That flight would give you 2,811 miles (4.7 cent per mile). Remember to use Ebates and Orbitz to book for another $3.6 cash back per air ticket.
I can see many dates are available however they exclude Friday and Sunday travel.
