Only 1 day for this 1st class run!

Coach Sunday out Monday back.

I like this one (the 1st class one that is). My goal for 1st class runs is sub 8CPM and this one almost hits that – and this late in the year that is saying something! Yes you do have to overnight but it give you a chance to visit Hard Eight BBQ near the airport and maybe the new DFW Centurion on the way home. Oh and you get Breakfast on the way to Dallas (no lunch on second leg) and then lunch and dinner on the way back.

Do keep in mind if you have not had the Delta Amex Reserve personal or business card you still have time to pick that up and get 10,000 MQMs for the non-waved $450 first year fee (plus you get into the Sky Clubs for a year free when you fly Delta)!

I have added links below to the deal – just be sure you are logged into your account before you click them. I would book quickly if you need this one as my guess is this one will be gone almost as fast as I post it.

Here are the numbers:

Cost in 1st class: $635

7,408 MQMs at 8.5 CPM

Cost in E BASIC: $372

4,938 MQMs at 7.5 CPM
