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. Thanks for the heads up. This is routable to get it to 4.6 CPM with same day turn.

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

    • @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. It is not hard to get ultra low numbers from ATL, you just need to change airlines.

  4. 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.
