Open dates OCT NOV DEC

China Eastern (MU) Delta FF credit

How to check fare class on Expedia

Be sure to enter Delta FF number and KTN


Nice for 17k+ MQMs

This one is both sweet and painful. You are talking a boatload of MQMs to end the year. You can net even more MQMs if you tinker with days and connections. To me the 2 leg each way is just simpler and when you are talking sub 3CPM I see no need to push it any lower.

Do notice that you should try to find B fares for as many legs as you can as they do pay out 50% bonus MQMs with Delta partner China Eastern. Also T fare does pay out 100% MQM base rate. Also you should, on my example above, net out $1200+ MQDs as well since China Eastern on Delta credits you MQDs based on distance and percentage of fare class.

Lastly, make sure to put in your Delta SkyMiles number as well as KTN etc. There are a bunch of open dates but this deal is starting to die so I would not delay if you want to jump on this.

Here is one example:

  • Cost $511
  • 17,126MQMs at 3CPM
  • Bookable via Expedia <-LINK

PS – Don’t forget you can get 40k SkyMiles and 10k MQMs with EITHER Delta Amex Reserve card with the LTO going on!
