1.) Air Mobility Command from Seattle to Osan (South Korea)

Cost/mile: $0.0023

You cannot beat the price of an AMC Space-A flight. I paid $12 to fly from Seattle to Osan AFB, Korea, a distance of 5186 miles.

12/5186=0.002313922097956

So it costs 2/10ths of a cent per mile.
You just have to be in the US military to get on board...
