Okay, 2015 has been a depressing year for Delta Elites. Well, let’s look ahead to 2016 and new Mileage Run opportunities.  Let’s blow the doors off with a super-long Medallion Qualification Miles (MQM’s) run that surpasses 10,00 for under $500 right outta the gate in January! While the year-end scramble (for many of you) for MQM’s is still fresh in your mind make a New Year’s resolution to start your pursuit of Delta MQM’s early and here’s your first chance in January.

Anchorage in the middle of January, yeah, I know. Again, this comes with my words of wisdom (and personal experience as well as René); These aircraft between Minneapolis and Anchorage are worn out old 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 January, after the 11th and the prices get very attractive. Now you may see some lower prices on the calendar, but those do not include all the segments and MQM’s from the two I have listed here.

There are two options that I could get to work with Delta.com’s booking system (via our DIRECT BOOKING LINK, provided below).  The first is a seven-segment itinerary and the second is an eight-segment trip.

Here are the details for the first:

The route is DFW-DTW-LAX-MSP-ANC-SEA-LAX-DFW

MQM’s:    10,657

FARE:       $440

COST:         4.1 Cents Per Mile (CPM)

Here are the details for the second itinerary (longer and more MQM’s):

The route is: DFW-DTW-LAX-MSP-ANC-SEA-LAX-MSP-DFW

MQM’s:    11810

FARE:       $494

COST:         4.2 Cents Per Mile (CPM)

Please first LOGIN 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 Above) and then choose your flights by pressing SELECT on the flights displayed that match the Mileage Run I have posted.

I will continue to search for you for 2015 Mileage Runs, but it is getting worse. Take a look at an alternative Mileage Run for 2015 we just posted earlier here:

2016 is showing a lot of fare deals right now!…but if you are still stuck in 2015 Medallion Qualification, 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
