This week I posted about how the LAX folks could fly to SIN and back and pick up a ridiculous amount of points “fast-ish”. Well NYC it is your turn should you want to plan in this kind of insanity (and coming from me, that is saying a lot)! 😉
After the last post, a reader commented he took a day or so off between outbound and return. SOLID and WISE advice. This is a long trip in coach and will wear you out! But, if you have some vouchers or say 50,000 FlexPerks points you want to burn, you could end up with an amazing total of points for one trip. Here are the numbers I found:
21,747 MQMs at 4.5 CPM
Bookable on Delta.com
DM yields a CRAZY 48,929 Skymiles per CWSI.net!
Wow, for a Diamond, that is one HUGE bit of Skymiles. Keep in mind in 2015 you would get the SAME MQMs but only 9,394 Skymiles (as a DM that is). About 2k more if you paid with a Delta AMEX or 3k with a PRG Gold AMEX card.
