Oh how I love this one. The price is great, you get to visit DFW and can pop into the Centurion lounge, and for those who need a weekend run this works.  HT to FT on this nice deal. Here are the details:

Cost $218

5,244 MQMs at 4.2 CPM

Bookable on Delta.com

DM yields a nice 11,800 Skymiles per CWSI.net!

You could position since the DFW departure is not till 2:30PM (suggest FlexPerks points) to DFW in the AM, fly this, then fly home Sunday after again some time in the lounge! Sounds like a fun weekend to me! 😉

EDIT: If you can overnight and connect via DTW both ways you can push this to $223 & 5886MQMs at 3.8CPM!

  1. Awesome find. Thanks Rene!

    Booked one of these suckers for Nov 1-2nd. Will have to position from NYC but that’s no problem. Booked LGA-DFW-ATL-SAN-ATL-DFW-LGA for $487 which is just at 6cpm. I’ve had better MR’s but i’m running out of time this year so went ahead and jumped on this one.

    Question on Centurion Lounge Access. If I purhcase a day pass for $50 @ LGA, can I use that day pass to access the lounge at DFW? Or do I need to buy a pass for each location? The terms on the web site are not clear..

    Thanks RENE!

  3. @Matt – my guess is that one only but let me get back to you on that one. Do keep in mind the AMEX PLAT (non Delta) gets you in free. I know it has a $450 fee but you can get $200 back buying 4x$50 Delta e-Gift certs now and again after 1JAN2015. That is why I got the card this spring!

  5. I am new to all of this and have NEVER done a mileage run not even know how to set one up. I have looked at your Rookie pages but maybe I am looking over a post or page or something that would tell me how to do this. i know this has to be easy since my home airport is ATL. i am just 2 flights away from silver bit would love to increase that to gold or higher. any auggestions on where i could get a crash course?
