You may be asking yourself with all the changes going on at Delta why mileage run anymore at all? Well, as we all know, MR’in is NOT about Skymiles. It is about status and MQMs. The upgrades (yeah less that before) and the perks that come with status. You can get a TON from CC spend but not enough to make Diamond. If you want that – you need to put your but in the airline seat.
This one is an amazing price for a weekend runner. You are talking 1st class (domestic 1st) and all done on a weekend. You even have time to recover after the run before work. It works both ways btw with a HT to FT for this one. There are also lots of weekday open dates as you can see. Maybe stay a day or so in SFO and be SURE to visit the AMEX Centurion SFO while you are there. It is great!
Here are the lowest numbers with a red-eye back:
Cost $526 in 1st class
7,228 MQMs at 7.2CPM
