Let me tell ya folks the really good runs, i.e. sub 4CPM (cents per mile for each MQM), are really getting thin. But this one works either in Basic for the cheapest price ie 3.8CPM or at 4.3CPM you can go with an X+ fare class for shot at medallion upgrades on all the legs.

Personally I really like the one FROM Miami as you could fly down Friday night, go to the Centurion MIA Saturday before the run, then take the run. You land Sunday back in MIA in time that you should be able to fly back home Sunday night. Thus this is an all one weekend run.

Here are the cheapest numbers:

Cost: $238 in evil E BASIC class

Cost: $268 in main cabin coach

6250 MQMs at 3.8 CPM E Basic

6250 MQMs at 4.3 CPM X Fare

  1. Definitely do this one from Miami. There is also Cafe Versailles just a short Uber away to consider for a Cuban breakfast/brunch & people watching before you head to the airport to hit the lounges. Last but certainly not least, the less time spent at the LAX T2/3 dumpster fire, the better.
