This one is SICK! WoW! Possible to use GU certs as a DM (maybe). Either way, you must overnight in SIN but a day recover could be nice. This is a BOATLOAD of points. HT for the idea from MightyTravels on FT here. Check this out.

$872 all in

19, 787 MQMs that results in 4.4CPM

Bookable on

A DM could earn almost 45,000 Skymiles for this puppy and bring NET cost down to $400 range for almost 20,000 MQMs.

Few dates but April 28 May 1st or May 12 – May 15.

If you do two you are talking almost NO status to Gold Medallion in two trips! 😉


  1. Wow, this would be an awesome mileage run if it wasn’t during the week. I cant burn a whole work week. I did a LAX–NRT-SIN-NRT-LAX mileage run last year but was able to do it Fri-Mon which only cost me 1 day of work on Friday. It netted me 17,558 MQM.

  2. @farcasternet – I am looking as any options. I see for 5.5CPM in AUG 22,000 MQMs and 50,000 SKYmiles. Just sick fun.

  3. @rene, 22K MQM, that’s crazy!! What dates did you find that in AUG and was it a weekend run?

  4. I’m new to MRs. I have tried searching message boards for this question but no luck. Do you run into any issues with customs/immigration trying to explain why your flying all the way to Singapore for basically 1 night? Do you get “flagged” by TSA for doing these types of runs?

  5. @Randy – most places no and if you ever do all you do is tell them what you are doing. You can not get “flagged” for just flying a lot on airplanes 🙂 – it may be different, but not wrong!

  6. Better yet: LAX-CDG-JNB-CDG-LAX (and variations)for 22.158+ MQM and 4.2 cpm or less!

  7. What dates in August do you see? Any other dates? I can not due the late April Mid May options

  8. @David – the AUG dates are at a higher price but you can route to get MORE MQMs and MORE RDMs so still a great price. Thinking!

  9. I know I sound “lazy” by asking this, but any help/suggestions to max MQM and minimize CPM for August dates?
