We found a Delta elite mileage run next April from Philadelphia to Tokyo that scores you over 15,600 MQM!
It’s currently pricing at $735.95 and travels PHL-ATL-HND, with an overnight in Tokyo. The return takes you HND-LAX-ATL-PHL. (I also spotted some trips through MSP or DTW and then PDX).
Tuesday departures and Thursday returns seem to have the best options available right now.
It’s a lot of flying (almost 20 hours — each way) with about 25 hours total in Tokyo. That’s plenty of time to grab some sushi, shabu-shabu, maybe catch the Robot Dinner Show (that’ll wake you up) and get a good night’s sleep.
- Cost: $735.95 in Main Cabin
- Dates: Spring 2021
- Route: PHL-ATL-HND. Overnight in Tokyo. HND-LAX-ATL-PHL.
- MQM: 15,647 (4.7 CPM)
- MQD: $656
- Base SkyMiles: 3,280
Keep in mind Delta is waiving change fees on tickets purchased through August 31, 2020.
