This one is driving me a little crazy. It all “should work” but I am having issues. As you can see from the slides above, we can use this in 2014 and for 2015 Mileage Runs (see I am listening and hear you readers 2015 runs will start as of NOW)!

Now then, as you can also see, on Delta.dumb, many legs are coming up in X coach class. They should, per ITA Matrix, be open in A & Z biz. I have in the past got feedback from readers to just call the medallion line and see if they can not just make happen in the right fare class the whole way.  If you can, you are talking 6.2CPM for this run and you could, say the last weekend in Jan, just take one day off and spend just one night in CUN and fly home Sunday! Not a bad weekend I would say. Here are the (possible) numbers:

Cost $737 in 1st

11,834 MQMs at 6.2 CPM

Bookable on Delta.com – route via DTW both ways

DM nets 20,000+ Skymiles in 2014, clearly a BUNCH less in 2014.

I have also been thinking (I know scary right). I may just dispenses with posting how many Skymiles we could get. You all can see for yourself depending on your medallion level and in 2014 we get nothing but crumbs anyway. #Developing! – Rene
