all upgrade poss chi to hawaii

Oh I may get yelled at for even posting this one but for those who don’t have a lot of time off from work this one could work. PLEASE keep in mind ATL-HNL and back is not upgrade eligible so if you want the best CPM that is part of the route. However, for just over 6CPM you can work this many ways and be all upgrade eligible. You can even route via NYC for MAX MQMs again at a higher price if the BIG number is all you want. Here is the best CPM one:

Cost $628

11,000 MQMs at 5.7CPM

Bookable on Delta.com

DM yields a HUGE 24,752 Skymiles per CWSI.net!

I would think flying that day upgrades should be very good (at least my guess). Same on the Friday coming back. 😉 Oh and clearly there are ways to make this a mini vacation run at a good price too. A few dates in DEC as well btw.

  1. What tool/resource are you using to obtain the calendar of fares as you did in this post? I’m interested in searching alternate routes. Thanks

    Seeing a couple of Jan/Feb dates for close to that price, of course less redeemable miles then 🙁 Thanks for heads up!

    • @MSP – yeah after 1JAN I want 4CPM or less or 8CPM or less in 1st as my mark. Then again, it is HAWAII so… 😉
