Here’s a nice, fairly quick Delta Air Lines mileage run for West Coast flyers looking to pick up some quick MQM. It’s a San Diego to Miami trip (via New York JFK) with a few dates available this winter and spring.

It scores just over 7,000 MQM for $328.80 in Main Cabin (4.7 CPM).

Our example trip departs SAN on Monday, March 16, at 9:45 PM and arrives to JFK at 6:02 AM on March 17. Your Miami hop leaves at 7:55 AM and gets to MIA at 11:12 AM.

You have only an hour before you trace the reverse route, ending up back in San Diego at 8:20 PM that night.

All flights are on Delta metal. Medallions can enjoy preferred seats and upgrade opportunities (which are key for that redeye flight from SAN to JFK).

Here’s a Google Flights link to start your search.

    Ah Contraire (to the last section of your post), I DO live in San Diego, the 5th most populous county in America. But we almost always get ignored in travel or mileage run posts, so let me thank you much for finding this mileage run for us SD folk. Keep it up.
