grr to aua

 

Gosh it pains me to post runs like this. Sure, if this were 1st class, not bad, but coach – Ugg. Sad part is that it is still WAY cheaper than buying MQMs (see just how bad a deal buying them is)! But it is a day trip out and back and not TOO far from DTW land. There are others if you check the twitter feed for even higher CPM from DTW to SMF.

Anyway, here is this one on the 31 and getting the MQMs in under the wire:

Cost $436

4,710 MQMs at 9.3CPM

Bookable on Delta.com

If anyone else finds something better out of DTW area PLEASE comment as all I am finding everywhere, coach or 1st, is over 10CPM. Not good!

    And yet, it’s going to be a lot more painful next year when we can’t find these little treasures. I can imagine, “Gosh it pains me to post runs like this where you pay $436 and get 436 miles — depending on your status from 2014 when playing the mileage game was fun and getting to Diamond didn’t have to cost $125,000 for 125,000 MQMs.”

    • @EFF – Do keep in mind MQMs do NOT change next year so the MQMs will be just the same. ONLY RDMs change. Clear?
