I get that you have to be hard core to run this as 24 hours non-stop with a red-eye in E Basic fare (I would overnight if I were you). Also, as with the other run posted from the West coast this AM, the downside is this is an E BASIC fare so no upgrade or seat choices! It will cost you a bit more to run this main cabin with upgrade chances.

You will have some time to visit the new Dallas Centurion is now OPEN and if you do overnight vs red-eye try a visit for some Texas BBQ (think HardEight near DFW)!

Here are the many days open weekday numbers:

Cost: $186 BASIC E Class fare (no upgrades)

  1. More milage run info please.

    I’m over $75k on my Reserve but still under on MQM’s, a nice one day run somewhere would be just the ticket (ha) to get me to Plat.
