Coach dates

1st class dates

I don’t normally play requests but since I am dying to visit Kansas City and get some BBQ one day I am tossing this one up for my Delta readers in MCI! The coach one is E Basic but you can run it out and back in a day – nice! The 1st class one for just over 9CPM I like better but you red-eye back. You have more dates you can play with as you see above.

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)!

Here are the numbers:

Cost in E Basic non-upgrade fare class: $288

5,062 MQMs at 5.7 CPM

  1. Rene, I appreciate you putting these together. It would be even more aweome if it was one big trip. We start in Atlanta, and away we go. End of the week we have amassed so many miles and so many CPM’s. You could bring me back to those awesome days of flying Delta each day while I worked.
