I swear I’m trying to find mileage runs for places other than California and London.

But this is what’s turning up for me — and if you need some MQM in the next two months, this is a pretty sweet little score.

This is an LAX to London Heathrow mileage run during the December 6-8 weekend.

You arrive in London on Saturday afternoon at 1:45 PM, leaving you an evening to play in the city. (If winter holidays are your thing, check out these Christmas market recommendations.)

The two outbound legs (LAX-CDG-LHR) are aboard Air France (including an A380 on the long haul!).

The return flight is on a Virgin Atlantic Dreamliner.

No flights on Delta metal — but they’re the only airline selling this fare. I checked KLM, Air France, Virgin…

It currently costs just $357.05 — and yields a respectable 11,626 MQM! Here’s a Google Flights link to get you started.

This is a coach fare. If you can live with that, I’d jump on this deal right now.

If you don’t live in Los Angeles, this is similar to the one I posted yesterday: plenty of time to position in Friday morning or early afternoon, and return home Sunday afternoon or evening.

Here’s how it breaks down:

  • Dates: Depart Friday, December 6. Return Sunday, December 8
  • Route: LAX-CDG-LHR. Overnight in London. LHR-LAX
  • Cost: $357.05 in Coach
  • MQM: 11,626 (3.1 CPM)
  • MQD: $221

Delta mileage run to London Heathrow on Air France and Virgin Atlantic during the weekend of December 6.

Not What You’re Looking For?

Itching for a run to or from specific destinations? Good for 2020 status but need to stock up on 2021?

    I am sure LAX to London is a great trip, but I have to get a RT ticket to LAX to take advantage of it. Time and Cost is not worth it. Anything from Cincinnat? i or even Atlanta would probably okay. . But I don’t want an all day and night trip to Johannesburg.

  2. Another great run. They’re not easy to find this time of year with time running out . Thank you Chris. Hip hip hooray!

  3. @Wayne: I love finding runs! Believe it or not, I get excited writing the posts. (Plenty of 5 of 6 CPM out there, too.)
