Monday, February 29, 2016   by John @laptoptravel Well, I am back from my Massive Mileage Run to SouthEast Asia (Japan, Thailand and S. Korea)! It’s not like I was ever really gone; I still did posts and twitter, of course.  And I did look for Mileage Runs while on that trip…but it is much harder without all of my (proprietary) tools!  So, here’s a leap day gift for everyone! I found this great run between Seattle and New Orleans!  Before you even ask; YES, it works in both directions!  In fact I find more (that is, more of them…) cheaper fares from New Orleans to Seattle than originating from Seattle.  Although I did find a single date that works for $198 from Seattle to New Orleans. Most of the fares from Seattle to New Orleans are $204, plus the one I found (May 3rd, an overnight with a May 4th return)…

Monday, February 8, 2016  by John @laptoptravel Here is another great domestic mileage run that René did just last week.  Another almost same-day run, although it really is an overnight flight between New York City and New Orleans.  Leave either at 7:00am or 11:00am and connect through Salt Lake City and then you are off to New Orleans.  You can a short night in New Orleans or a long layover and get back to New York early the next evening, around 6:00pm. 6,834 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQM’s) will be your reward for this quick trip on Delta Air Lines.  Now, I have only found one date that works; April 6th with a return on the 7th. Let me caution anyone thinking they might get upgraded to First Class on these flights.  It is probably not going to happen flying into and out of Salt Lake City. One of my greatest discomforts…
