While this is a little high CPM-wise for a premium economy mileage run not yielding mega MQD, I know Minneapolis area flyers are starved for mileage runs. So I figured we’d toss this one up in case it helps anyone.

This Delta Air Lines MSP to Tokyo Haneda trip departs Tuesday, March 10 (though a few other dates might be available — check this Google Flights link). It arrives the following day at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport. Enjoy an evening in Tokyo and nearly all of Thursday before your 7:20 PM return flight. Arrive back in MSP at 4:20 PM on the same calendar day.

Both flights are nonstop.

The price works with few different return dates — so you can make a nice vacation run of it if you like.

Here are the vitals:

  • Dates: Depart March 10, arrive March 11. Return March 12.
  • Route: MSP-HND. Overnight in Tokyo. HND-MSP
  • Cost: $1395.35 in Premium Select
  • MQM: 17,946 (7.8 CPM)
  • MQD: $1,298

Delta mileage run from Minneapolis (MSP) to Tokyo Haneda (HND) in March 2020.If you have IHG points (consider getting the IHG Premier Rewards Credit Card), I highly recommend staying at The Strings by InterContinental. It’s connected to Shinagawa train station and about a 15-minute train ride from Haneda.

Atrium and lobby restaurant at InterContinental ANA The Strings Tokyo.
