ATL 2x for MAX MQMs

Try SLC for upgrade shots

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 SLC for a medallion upgrade shot (since MSP & ATL are non-free upgrade routes). Either way be sure you choose via ATL both times for MAX MQMs (if you want to).

Here are the coach numbers:

Cost: ~$350

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

Cincinnati to Dallas (via SLC) 1st class $498 & 7312 MQMs at 6.8 CPM Weekend +1 Delta Elite Mileage Run

Hey guess what CVG – you get BBQ & Centurion time too! There are even two good weekends you can run this (well Friday & Saturday so long-ish weekend). Plus, you know, flying and buying first class just makes the whole upgrade thing not really matter. You can run this in coach but it is over 5 CPM so why not for a few bucks more do this in 1st class I say and this … Continue reading

HURRY! New York to Dallas (via SLC) Mixed 1st class $350 & 7443MQMs at 4.7CPM Weekend Delta Elite Mileage Run

OK you can either LOVE ME or HATE ME for this one. 🙂 I can tell you that if I were not already rolling over enough MQMs to be Diamond Medallion next year I would jump all over this puppy. I love this. How about this for a weekend of relaxing: Saturday fly and and enjoy the Centurion DFW then off to BBQ. Sunday you have almost all day again back at the Centurion or … Continue reading

Nashville to Boston (via MSP) $118 & 3638MQMs at 3.2 CPM Weekday Delta Elite Mileage Run (1st class Weekend date as well)!

With another HT to FT for this find on this nice one day run at an amazing CPM on a weekday. The better one may be the weekend 1st class run at just about 7 CPM (I like under 8 CPM in 1st btw). The other reason I like the 1st class find is if you have FlexPerks points you can spend 20k since the 1st run is just under $400. Do note you can … Continue reading

Minneapolis to Baltimore (via SLC) $198 & 5710MQMs at 3.5CPM Delta weekday HUB Elite Mileage Run – HOT!

With a HT to FT for this find on this one there is a hot price offer that IS IN E BASIC so no upgrades unless you want to pay about $30 more for the ticket (something to think about). This one is amazing as you can do it all in one long day without an overnight needed if you go on the weekdays show. I can only get the price to HOLD via PriceLine … Continue reading

HURRY! Chicago to Dallas (via SLC) 1st class $404 & 6712MQMs at 6CPM Weekend +1 Delta Delta Mileage Run

This one will not last long. This is a great weekend +1 run if you are anywhere near Chicago. You can enjoy some time to  check out the DFW Centurion, maybe get a massage and they play in Dallas (BBQ anyone)? I can not get this too book via Kayak or Google (sample of the earnings shown above) but Priceline is working. If you can please first click my link then the link for the … Continue reading

New York to Dallas (via SLC) $183 & 5954MQMs at 3CPM Weekday Delta Elite Mileage Run

It’s back and even cheaper than the one for November! You can do this with an overnight and go get some BBQ and have a shot at FULL FLATS on the 757-200 each way. Or, do the same day turn and redeye back and at least you do have a few hours in the middle to check out the DFW Centurion and maybe get a massage before the flights back home. Anyway here are the … Continue reading

Seattle to Manchester England $568 & 12558MQMs at 4.5CPM Weekend +1 Delta Elite Mileage Run

In a need of a big chunk of MQMs to make the next medallion level? This one may be for you. You will get about 24 hours in Manchester to enjoy the town (should you wish) but do notice you will have to add the price of one night in a hotel for this run. I guess the only other option I would think about is taking Thursday as well to have two days to … Continue reading

Seattle to Denver (via MSP) $176 & 4184MQMs at 4.2CPM weekend 1 day Delta Elite Mileage Run

There are only a few scattered dates on this one and, yes, it is a red-eye but I like this for a few reasons. First off, to be near 4CPM on a weekend hub run is nice. You are only burning one weekend day and, as it is a weekend, your upgrade shot should be better. That is unless… A bunch of folks say forget the coach run lets fly first class at just over … Continue reading
