I waffled on posting this or not but want to do my best for all 145 of you who put up airport requests. Plus, so many of you want weekend runs. Clearly most of the really cheap deals are weekdays but that does not help you. So this one works as it is under my personal goal of 7CPM weekend “cap” and you can start from most South Florida airports near your home. See what you think:

Cost $530

8,258MQMs at 6.4CPM (can be pushed to 6CPM)

Bookable on Delta.com

DM yields a very respectable 18,580 Skymiles per CWSI.net!

What say you readers, are you OK with sub 7CPM on weekends or should I hold for sub 6CPM. Thanks for input and I will try to get a few more from your wish list today. – Rene

    I like hearing about weekend mileage runs, especially under 7 CPM. My personal goal is under 6 CPM but I’d consider runs under 7. My next mileage run is ~8500mi at 5.8 CPM on May 10-11. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Rene, please keep them coming. Even the 7 CPM. I’d consider a 7 CPM run if it’s to a destination I’d like to visit. So far, thanks to your blog, I’ve got 26K in mileage runs to PDX, SXM, and GOT booked. Missed on the one to HKG due to conflict with a work trip that never materialized. Thanks for doing this. I really appreciate it.
