Let me tell ya folks the really good runs, i.e. sub 4CPM (cents per mile for each MQM), are really getting thin. But this one works either in Basic for the cheapest price ie 3.8CPM or at 4.3CPM you can go with an X+ fare class for shot at medallion upgrades on all the legs.
Personally I really like the one FROM Miami as you could fly down Friday night, go to the Centurion MIA Saturday before the run, then take the run. You land Sunday back in MIA in time that you should be able to fly back home Sunday night. Thus this is an all one weekend run.
Here are the cheapest numbers:
Cost: $238 in evil E BASIC class
Cost: $268 in main cabin coach
6250 MQMs at 3.8 CPM E Basic
6250 MQMs at 4.3 CPM X Fare
Need a hotel room in LAX or MIA? Consider supporting the blog via Priceline here
Book direct on Delta.com via the Multi-city page. Be sure to route via DTW for max MQMs.
PS – Don’t forget you can get 40k SkyMiles and 10k MQMs with EITHER Delta Amex Reserve card with the LTO going on!
WoW oh WoW is this one cheap but it is also in E Basic class that does earn full Delta MQMs but you get no seat choice or upgrade shot so consider the $198 fare maybe. This one is cheapest on a weekday but there are a number of weekends in November and at least one in December open for a few bucks more. Once you find your dates you want on ITA Matrix you … Continue reading
ALERT: There has been a schedule change for return. Consider PDX-ATL-ORD for more MQMs (4998)! I am sorry I have been all but ignoring posting mileage runs on the blog but now that we only have 6 month to go before they medallion year is over it is time to get going. This one is super simple and fits my personal goal of sub 4CPM runs for weekdays in coach and sub 5CPM on … Continue reading
Wednesday, April 19, 2017 by John @laptoptravel Click Here to Book This Deal via Priceline I just love a same-day or overnight Mileage Run, especially when it is a First Class deal and under 8 Cents Per Mile (CPM.) The fare is $646.60 and books into Fare Class ‘A.’ Now, you do have an overnight in Dallas, so you probably need a hotel for the 8 hours you are in Dallas. If you want this … Continue reading

With a HT to FT for the inspiration (I made it better again) this is DIRT cheap and you can basically do it all taking just one day off (i.e fly out at night and back next night)! But, as you can see from the above shots, you can overnight and spend more time at the Centurion SFO before you fly and the Centurion in IAH on the way back and not red-eye (that would … Continue reading

With a HT to FT for this very nice find from LA Delta fans. You can even, as you can see pay a bit more for a weekend run but the best rate is weekdays. Also, if it were me, I sure would look at NOT booking E BASIC fare but choose an upgrade fare and even the one day 1st class run at sub 6CPM (a VERY good price and could be booked visa … Continue reading
With a HT to FT for this find it could really work for some who have limited time off before year end including flying on Thanksgiving day (if you want to get away) and I bet the load levels will be light so possibly open seats? You can tweak the dates and maybe stay a day in Hawaii (I mean you are there after all) and you can tinker with the return to connect via … Continue reading
I know Memphis is not the Delta hub it once was but it is time for some mileage run love. Well sorta. I know you folks think you have the best BBQ around but Austin is good too. So here is a chance to compare. Well, if you take the 1st class run maybe as the coach one all you have time for is a hotel and back to the airport. I guess you could … Continue reading
When you are near 2 CPM is is crazy cheap (HT to FT) and this one does that and it is NOT again NOT an evil E Basic fare so you can upgrade. You can also at about 5 CPM fly it coach and and biz back (maybe as a reward for the coach redeye?)! Either way be sure you choose via DTW both times when you go to book on the Multi page on … Continue reading
