Friday the 13th could be a lucky day for some Delta travelers.

If you’re based in Vegas — or can take a half-day to get there — this might be a fine mileage run option.

This run leaves Friday night, December 13 at 7:05 PM (there’s also 5:00 PM departure for the same price) and connects at LAX. From there, you red-eye to Boston and arrive at 6:43 AM. You may have time to visit a Sky Club for a quick bite before your 7:58 AM flight back to LAX.

Your LAX to LAS flight gets you to Vegas at 2:40 PM — plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the weekend (or sleep).

Flights are in the Main Cabin and upgrade eligible.

When searching for the run, select LAX as your connection airport each way. Even though Vegas and LA are only about 240 miles apart, the short flights each receive a 500 MQM minimum!

  • Date: Friday, December 13, returns Saturday, December 14.
  • Route: LAS-LAX-BOS-LAX-LAS
  • Cost: $318.40
  • MQM: 6222 (5.1 CPM)
  • MQD: $259

 

Las Vegas to Boston Delta Mileage Run -- December 13

Good Option for Travelers Who Can Get to Vegas

Similar to our PHX to JFK mileage run, this may work for people in California, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Oregon, Washington, and other parts of Nevada.

The run’s Friday evening departure lives you plenty of time to position there. Plus, the 2:40 PM arrival is fairly conducive for late afternoon and late night flights back to your home city.

You could always head over to the Strip for a while. What’s the worst that could happen? 😉
