First a HT to the king of MR CokeandTaco!

While this is not the low 2-4CPM I like to see, the year is almost up. It is hard to get ultra low numbers out of ATL and this is a 1 day turn and burn back! Here we go with help from ITA Matrix:

I will keep hunting for more deals on my own as well for Delta Points hub captive readers to try to help you reach your MQM goal for the year! – René

PS – I have new poll up to the right where you can
tell us where you will end the year!

  1. Hey Rene, aren’t you located in/near Michigan? How will you start your trip in ATL? I’m still learning about mileage runs 🙂


  2. @Jordan – smile yep in SBN area. I will not go for this one but may readers are in ATL. I like mine out of our area or max 2-5 hr drive for a killer deal. (SBN or AZO or FW are best) – Rene

  3. I’m going to be 6320 miles short of Gold and was looking for a mileage run deal. Found RDU-LAX, then LAX-ATL-RDU for $230 and 4670 miles (500 for atl-rdu). that comes to .05 a mile. I can then do a RDU-ATL-JFK-ATL-RDU one day run for $156, 2520 miles and .06 per mile.

    Overall cost .054 cents a mile, with a chance for at least one or two upgrades in the process (LAS-ATL has 23 first class seats open). Not <.04, but I think it's a value.
