Hot on the heels of yesterday’s JFK-DFW single-day trip, we found another Delta elite mileage run for folks in the Big Apple (or those who can position to JFK.)

This is a quick, weekend getaway from JFK to Orange County/Santa Ana, California. And because both legs connect in Seattle, it hauls in a bunch of MQM! (We spotted several weekday dates available throughout April, too.)

If you have an anniversary night certificate from a hotel credit card such as the World of Hyatt Credit Card, IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card, Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™ American Express® Card, etc, this could be a nice opportunity to use it in a fun locale.

Keep in mind this is a Basic Economy itinerary. But Delta is blocking middle seats through at least April 30, so you’ll have a seat open next to you (unless you bring a companion).

The trip costs $216.80 and yields 6,798 MQM. The key here is to connect in SEA. This Google Flights search helps you get started.

Our specific itinerary departs Friday morning, April 16, and gets you to SNA in late afternoon. You can enjoy that night and into the early afternoon Saturday before heading back to the airport. The return involves a redeye from SEA to JFK — but you have Sunday to recover before the traditional work week starts!

  1. Nice deal but why would anyone spend hours in the back of a 757 on Basic Economy? If you book Basic Economy even Diamond Medallion can’t help you
