This one is just a potential home run if you can get the 2x Seattle promo. Even without it, it is a nice deal. You can do this on weekdays or weekends at near the same price. If you play with airports around SEA ie up to a few hundred miles you can get EVEN MORE! Here are the numbers without the 2x promo:

Cost $975 in 1st class

12,056MQMs a 8CPM (again without promo)

Bookable on Delta.com

Coach trip DM yields is 22,100  Skymiles per CWSI.net

As you can see with the HUGE amount of MQMs and Skymiles this can be a very reasonable run. If you can get 2x for everthing, you are talking sub 4CPM in 1st class. Staggering and makes me wish I lived in SEA! – WOW!

  1. For Seattle flyers, you would only get 2x MQM on the SEA-JFK flights, not JFK-SJU

    So:
    SEA-JFK = 2410 + Double MQM + 50% MQM Bonus = 6025 each way
    JFK-SJU = 1600 + 50% MQM Bonus = 2400 each way
    x2 = 16850 MQMs @ 5.8 CPM, still a smokin deal for FC and a roughly 24 hr trip!

  3. Booked this one! Thanks Rene. I for one am glad you are including 1st class mileage runs as many are good bang for the buck when you factor in the bonus MQMs.
