Delta Air Lines flyers in New York needing some MQM may want to check out this coast-to-coast mileage run from JFK to Sacramento, California.

I found this deal for Tuesday, December 10, though it appears a few other dates are available, too.

Delta Mileage Run dates for JFK to SMF

 

Here’s the breakdown:

  • Dates: December 10-11
  • Route: JFK-LAX-SMF-LAX-SMF
  • Cost: $328.40 in Main Cabin
  • MQM: 5950 (5.5 CPM)
  • MQD: $268

There are Basic Economy options available, too. But Main Cabin gives Delta Medallions exit row seats and shots at upgrades. Plus, the JFK – LAX legs are 767-300s with Delta One lie flats. If you have expiring RUs, this might be a decent way to use them.

Here’s a Google Flights link to get you started.
