This one is outside my 2015 4CPM coach weekday and 5CPM coach weekend run maximum post requirement because this one is focused for just for Diamond Medallions. Why? If you are a Diamond you can still get a free medallion UG and enjoy full flat seats for the direct flights, nice international light service and be out and back in just one day. That, for under $300 and picking up 5K MQMs just works to me (yes I have booked one).

So here are the numbers that are the same either way

Cost $291

5,172 MQMs at 5.6CPM

Now if you happen to have a non-Delta Platinum AMEX card, I would tinker with times and maybe spend some time and the Centurion SFO as well! It is a nice visit! – Rene
