Is there a perfect Mileage Run? This one is close IMO. You even get to go have dinner in NYC on the way home (well you do have to overnight but that is what points are for right)! You do have to take a half day off Friday but you are able to collect a (giggle) staggering amount of points all while flying in 1st/business class the whole way. That is a nice way to MR. Here are the numbers:
Cost $1,397 in 1st
21,134 MQMs at 6.5 CPM
Bookable on Delta.com
DM yields an HUGE 38,774 Skymiles per CWSI.net!
EDIT: Also PROMO from DL for Caribbean if you pick included locations! (HT reader Tommy) https://www.delta.com/mypromos/acelanding.action?offer=lacpromo
Look at it this way, if you are a PM or lower and don’t want to MR to your next level in coach, this is the way to do it! 😉
