It seems my run find from yesterday was just the first of an all out fare sale nationwide. Just about every major Delta hub AeroMexico flies from (other than MSP) is included in these deals.

The best yields are from NYC and SEA. There really are a ton of options and you can look at post to seem even more choices and examples.

The really fun part about this one is that it is WIDE OPEN into January 2020 so you could book a few of these and take care of your Medallion status for all of 2020 and 2021! But some warnings.

  • This is a Y-UP fare sale into “I” and “D” fare class but Delta has had issues giving you proper credit. Be ready for this. Know you may have to fight!
  • Some of the routes include an overnight in a hotel (or sleep in the airport) while others red-eyes
  • Some of the routes you are flying lots of Delta jets but a long as it is booked as an AeroMexico codeshare you are earning on that chart not Delta charts (i.e. you do NOT want to book this on
  • It is hard to book on AeroMexico site. I would use Justfly as shown in this post.

I do love these runs as the price for the MQMs is really low (well under 8CPM) and the MQD credits are huge. Plus you are getting a nice chunk of SkyMiles back based on distance not price like Delta does when you buy on If you need help booking please reach out to my pal ADAM and his team of run experts!

Are you jumping on any of these runs? – René



  1. Hey trying to stay silver. In Atlanta I live
    Need 15 mqms or 14000 miles
    Thoughts without going international???


  2. @Jim Harris: 15 MQS or 14,000 MQM, correct?

    Without going internationally, you could fly a few trips between East and West coast (like, from NYC or BOS to LAX, SAN, SEA, or SFO). Or if you can find cheap RTs from ATL to destinations as close as possible, you can hit the MQS that way.

    Or, assuming you’ve met the MQD requirements, consider getting MQM from these Delta Amex cards:
    Delta Amex Business Platinum
    Delta Amex Reserve
    Delta Amex Business Reserve

    Perhaps those welcome bonus MQM combined with some flying can help knock out your MQM needs.
