This one you have to be either a little crazy to do or it could be a good way to burn a DM GU cert. You can overnight or stay just 2hrs and fly home on the same 777-200 (meaning 30 hrs almost straight on the jet)! I like domestic runs but this is HUGE. HT to FT for the idea for the search. Here are the numbers.

Cost $842

16,574MQMs & 5cpm

Bookable on Delta.com

DM yields is a STAGGERING 37,292 Skymiles per CWSI.net, PM & GM 33,148 and FO 20,718

If you check the FT thread there are other routes and other Texas airports to use like DFW. Please comment if you are going to do this one; you will be my hero! – Rene

    • @Steve – SM stands for Skymiles. FO is a toss back to Flying Orchid in the old days.

      • I would have assumed SM would be Silver Medallion! But okay I see the point that it would confuse. Flying Orchid flew right over my head, though, so I went and looked it up… Now, I see that FO is the Delta designation for Silvers. Thanks.
