I know this is not an ideal Mileage Run, but let me say that it is really getting ugly here the last few days to take a Mileage Run before 2015 ends. I am hearing from a lot of you that you “just need something” to get you over the MQM hump for the year. On the plus side it is a WEEKEND RUN, and it is after the big Holiday!
Okay; here you go. This is 8,654 Medallion Qualification Miles for less than $900. Truthfully, we are approaching a 10 Cents per Mile (CPM) starting price for Mileage Runs of any real length. So many people are flying for vacations, their own Mileage Runs and I have seen a lot of flyers these past few weeks cashing in their Regional and Global Upgrade Certificates.
I wish I had some good First Class Mileage Runs, and I will get back to searching for those after this post. Well, hopefully many of you were able to capitalize on our previous two First Class Elite Mileage Runs last week.
So, I am sending you far away to Anchorage on this Mileage Run. Let me prepare you and tell you these aircraft between Minneapolis and Anchorage are worn out planes from Northwest. Delta still flies these since they carry so much cargo/mail.
As you can see by the posted calendar, there are a handful of dates that work in December, and the prices get so much better in January, if you want to start the year off with another run.
MQM’s: 8654 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQM’s)
Ticket Price: $854
Cost: 10.6 Cents Per Mile (CPM)
Bookable on Delta.com
(Wednesday’s Dec 26th) – DIRECT BOOKING <-LINK
A total of four segments, here is your routing: MIA-MSP-ANC-MSP-MIA
Please LOGIN first you your Delta.com account before clicking any links. The, once you are signed into your Delta.com account then click on the desired link (Shown Below) and then choose your flights by pressing SELECT on the flights displayed that match the Mileage Run I have posted. You will then be taken directly into a Delta window where you can see the flights, the miles, and the cost. From there you can also choose “Pay With Miles” (if you have a Delta co-branded American Express card) and Purchase the ticket!
I will continue to search for you…but you need to make a commitment to do something before time runs out! It probably will just get uglier from here on out until December 31st. -Enjoy your travels! – John @laptoptravel
