how to find on delta-com

mqm totals from 1st run delta-com msp-jfk-tpa

I have had so many requests for runs out of MSP and am going to do my best to find a few but I also want to stay inside my preferred personal max numbers that is around 4CPM in coach and 8CPM in business class and this one does get close to that. Yes you will have to overnight but you will get dinner on the way down and breakfast and lunch on the way back.

Do notice you will have to stay overnight in TPA but if you don’t have points consider PRICELINE for a cheap room. Lastly you may want to look at burning 30k FlexPerks points for this one.

Stay tuned for more hub runs as I can find time to post this coming week but if you need help in a hurry I would reach out to ADAM for help (link below).

Here are the 1st class numbers:

Cost: $515

6,100 MQMs at a 8.4 CPM

Book direct on Delta.com via multi leg in 1st class as shown above HERE

As you can see from the above, if you are in need 10,000 MQMs or more the above cards are one of the simplest ways to get the MQMs you are short for the year. It is VERY important you see THIS POST <-LINK to check if you have ever had the personal or business card bonus EVER before as that will prevent you from getting it again. Do note the annual fee is NOT waived for the above cards but the value of the MQMs to me far outweighs the cost of holding the card for a year or more.

SHOCKER! San Francisco to Houston (via DTW) $158 & 6310MQMs at a LOW 2.5 CPM red-eye weekday Delta Elite Mileage Run (other options too)

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

Los Angels to Denver (via MSP) $108 & 4458 MQMs at 2.4 CPM weekday Delta Elite Mileage Run

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

Toronto to Hawaii $350 & 10858MQMs at 3.2CPM Holiday / Weekday Delta Elite Mileage Run

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

Memphis to Austin (via DTW) $171 & 3510MQMs at 4.9CPM weekday Delta Elite Mileage Run

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

HURRY! San Francisco to Houston (via DTW) $138 & 6310 MQMs at 2.2 CPM Delta weekday Elite Mileage Run

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

Chicago to San Francisco (via ATL) $268 & 5490 MQMs at 4.9 CPM Weekend Delta Elite Mileage Run

There is a lot to like about either one of these two runs if you are a Delta flyer out of Chicagoland area. While the price is a tad bit high at almost 5 CPM it is a weekend run and one you can do all in one long day. Plus, since it is on a weekend your upgrade chance should be higher than normal and out of SFO all upgrades are hard period. The … Continue reading

Minneapolis to Paris (via ATL) $555 & 10600 MQMs at 5.2 CPM Weekend Delta Elite Mileage Run

Very limited dates on this one but here is why I really like it. You can leave work just a little early on Friday and be home by Sunday night and get to enjoy about 24 hours in Paris. It is always fun to come in to work and when they ask you what you did this weekend say: “I had dinner in Paris” 🙂 I also like this one if you have FlexPerks points … Continue reading

Salt Lake to Dallas (via DTW) $223 & 4936MQMs at 4.5CPM weekday Delta Elite Mileage Run

I guess I should have check this one FROM Salt Lake too. Now the price is as low as from Detroit but still a decent deal. The park I like better about this one FROM SLC is that you have some time to enjoy Dallas. Not much grant you but enough to sleep and enjoy the run (and the Centurion DFW too). Also like the other one I can only get the low price from … Continue reading

Detroit to Dallas (via SLC) $203 & 4938MQMs at 4.1CPM Weekday Delta Elite Mileage Run

Now don’t hate on me because I am not forcing you to sleep in an airport – I am just putting up the deal. There are clearly far simpler ways to pick up MQMs but this has a few things going for it. First, it is all done in about 24 hours. Next you can go in coach or sleep in First class (would be my choice). Sure, if you do it in coach and … Continue reading
