If you’re off Thanksgiving week and want to pick up almost 20,000 MQM on a crazy mileage run from Boston to Manila, this trip may be for you.

The trip departs early morning Monday, November 25 from Boston. The trip connects first in Atlanta, then Tokyo Narita, before arriving in Manila at 9:35 PM Tuesday evening.

You’ll overnight in Manila.

The return leaves Manila on Wednesday morning, November 26, at 9:55 AM and flies the reverse route, getting you into Boston at 8:36 PM the same day. Plenty of time to get some sleep before the next day’s Thanksgiving festivities!

This is a Main Cabin trip (all on Delta metal). It’s a long time in coach. If you have GUCs and this trip really interests you, consider cashing them in for this run.

Here’s how it breaks down:

Route: BOS-ATL-NRT-MNL. Overnight in Manila. MNL-NRT-ATL-BOS

Cost: $847.13

MQM: 19,378 (4.4 CPM)

  1. I notice a bunch of your mileage runs are Delta direct and not through partner code shares… is this because it just works or is the MQM / MQD return not as good with the partner sold flights?

  2. @Pete: Runs are just whatever I can find. During my last string of MQD runs, people were asking for MQM runs. 🙂 Was trying for Midwest region runs to Asia and Europe but nothing decent popped up.

    I checked out some AeroMexico, Air France, and KLM flights today but didn’t get anything too exciting.

    (I know we say it all the time — but if there’s something you need fast, get in touch with the mileage run crew at Juicy Miles)

  3. hi Chris/Rene, the new website looks a lot cleaner and less cluttered. But not a fan of the “top of the page” redesign. First the blue title on graphic is really hard to read with some backgrounds. Second, when I click through from wherever (RSS/email/front page) it’s to read your content, opening a screen that is completely filled the blog logo and huge graphic is… not what this reader is looking for. Then I have to scroll to find the text. You’re not the only site doing this but I’m not sure why this makes sense from a readability/end user perspective. Take users directly where they want to go rather than add extra steps!
