ags to sea 1st class

Don’t yell at me for this one; you are the one who waited till now to book a run out of the ATL area (yeah 150 miles away is “in the area” 😉 )! So you drive to Augusta Sunday the 28th overnight and get a hotel with free parking, do the run Monday/Tuesday and drive home that night. At least you get to fly in 1st class mostly, and according to Delta.dumb, you get full flat seats on a 737-900 (please note you DO NOT – see THIS review to see seats)!

Still, even paying for this trip and hotel and gas (hey gas is cheap nowadays) you are far better off than buying MQMs! Right? Here are the numbers:

Cost $799 in 1st

7,794 MQMs at 10.3CPM

Bookable on Delta.com

Now if this were ME, I would burn up 40,000 FlexPerks points (i.e. up to a $800 ticket). That can be had for under $200 all in with a little work and makes this a MUCH better value 🙂
