Monday, March 7, 2016   by John @laptoptravel The only dates that work for Los Angeles to Miami are the following: March 12 March 19 March 26 May 3rd May 10th Well, we are seeing a lot of selective fare attacks which began last week and I am hopeful will continue through this week.  This one is a great opportunity to fly across the country and still be eligible for a complimentary upgrade (they still do that, right?) at least it is not a JFK to/from San Francisco or Los Angeles DeltaONE where those upgrades cost you some type of instrument (GUC’s, RUC’s or miles-with certain fare classes). Nope this is a great little run that works in both directions!  Miami to Los Angeles via Atlanta in one direction or Los Angeles to Miami, also via a single Atlanta connection. Typically, this fare will run you between $250 and $450, but for…

Saturday, March 5, 2016    by John @laptoptravel So following up after our incredible “Houston to Hong Kong $589 and 17246 EQMs at 3.4CPM (Potential of 34492) Miles American Airlines Elite Mileage Run” post from a couple of weeks ago, I am featuring another another American Airlines Mileage Run for you AAdvantage members (or wannabees.)

Although you are flying in ‘Q’ fare class you still earn your Elite Qualifying Miles as shown: In addition, Executive Platinum…

Monday, December 14, 2015  by John @laptoptravel I know this is not an ideal Mileage Run, but let me say that it is really getting ugly here the last few days to take a Mileage Run before 2015 ends.  I am hearing from a lot of you that you “just need something” to get you over the MQM hump for the year. On the plus side it is a WEEKEND RUN, and it is after the big Holiday! Okay; here you go.  This is 8,654 Medallion Qualification Miles for less than $900.  Truthfully, we are approaching a 10 Cents per Mile (CPM) starting price for Mileage Runs of any real length.  So many people are flying for vacations, their own Mileage Runs and I have seen a lot of flyers these past few weeks cashing in their Regional and Global Upgrade Certificates. I wish I had some good First Class…
