Two really cheap days on this one!

Simple out and back!

While the ticket price for this one is really cheap, the cost per mile is a tad bit high at just under 7CPM for coach (I like under 4CPM). But it has some things I like and make it worth consider.

First off it is an “after work” one day out an back run. That has value. You can do it two days in a row and pick up over 2600 MQMs. It is the same jet out and back so no risk of missing a connection (even same flight number). If you have a Delta credit card this could be a good use for a pay with miles ticket! Lastly, there is one weekend day you can run this in December for a few bucks more.

Here are the numbers:

Cost: $94
