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).
