While certainly not as exciting as the MQD runs we posted the past few days, this overnight trip helps Delta Sky Miles members scoop up 6838 MQM for just over $309.

It requires spending the night. If you have an expiring anniversary night from one of your hotel credit cards or maybe can stay with family or friends, this could be a great run for you.

The trip leaves Monday, February 3 at 6:05 AM (don’t party too hard watching the Super Bowl the day before!) and connects at JFK. From there, you hop a plane to MCO and arrive at 7:14 AM.

Your return leaves Orlando the morning, February 4, at 7:30 AM. You again swing through JFK for a connection before getting back to LAX at 3:12 PM that afternoon.

LAX to MCO (via JFK) Mileage Run on February 3

  • Cost$309.40
  • Dates: Depart February 3, return February 4.
  • Route: LAX-JFK-MCO. Stay overnight. MCO-JFK-LAX.
  • Class: Delta Main Cabin T, V
  • MQM: 6838
  • MQD: $245
  • SkyMiles (base): 1,225 (plus Medallion bonus, if applicable)

The LAX-JFK flights are aboard 767-300s. There’s the (slim) possibility of getting upgraded to Delta One. Maybe you can burn an RU cert.

Right now, I see plenty of available exit row seats (in C+) that Diamonds and Platinums can select soon after ticketing.
