We found a quick, weekend mileage run in Delta first class (so, you know, business class 😉 ) from Ft. Lauderdale (FLL) to Los Angeles (LAX). This could be especially nice for folks in Atlanta who can position to/from FLL.

Our sample trip leaves Saturday, May 1, at 2:45 PM. (Again, perfect for positioning into FLL!). It connects in Detroit (DTW) before heading out to LAX. There’s a brief layover (about 80 minutes) before flying the route in reverse. It gets you back to FLL just before 11:00 AM. (Plenty of options to position back home if you don’t live in the Ft. Lauderdale area.)

Ft. Lauderdale (FLL) to Los Angeles (LAX) Delta elite mileage run in first class.

Because Delta is awarding 75% MQM and MQD bonuses on premium cabin trips, this trip is projected to earn approximately 16,314 MQM and $1040 MQM. The going rate is $678.80.

Assuming Delta credits everything correctly, here’s what the trips should ultimately look like:

  • Cost: $678.80
  • Route: FLL-DTW-LAX-DTW-FLL
  • MQM: 16,314 (4.2 CPM) 
  • MQD: $1040
  • Base SkyMiles: 2,970
