This JFK to San Diego Delta mileage run juuuusst squeaks in below our Main Cabin CPM limit. But for  New Yorkers looking for a quick day trip to San Diego, this is a good opportunity to score almost 7,000 MQM for a decent price.

The trip flies JFK-Seattle-San Diego and then the reverse for your trip home.

I found only one available date: Wednesday, March 4.

Depart JFK at 7:00 AM. This flight is equipped with Delta One. So if you have an RU certificate to burn, that might come in handy.

Then you’ll connect through Seattle and arrive to San Diego at 2:13 PM.

Your layover is about four and a half hours. So you have plenty of time to enjoy the Delta Sky Club. Maybe hop a Lyft or Uber to the Gaslamp area for a nice lunch outside.

The return trip departs at 6:54 PM and connects through Seattle. The final segment is an 11:01 PM flight depositing you at JFK just past 7:00 AM.
