Delta mileage run
Hi all. I recently joined Delta’s “Reclaim My Status” program. I have to fly 30k miles in 3 months! My business travel may not suffice so I am looking for ideas for MR out of LAX.
Not sure how crazy you want to get, but here are a few I came up with:
LAX-SEA-ANC-SEA-LAX ~ 7,000
LAX-MSP-DFW-ATL-LAX ~ 5,000 MQM
LAX-JFK-MIA-JFK-LAX ~ 7,000 MQM
LAX-MSP-ATL-SJU-ATL-LAX ~ 7,500 MQM
LAX-SFO-SLC-HNL-SEA-SFO-LAX ~ 8,000 MQM
LAX-ATL-GRU-ATL-LAX ~ 13,000 MQM
*Note that all MQM values are rounded
Depending on the fare you want or if you need any MQD’s, try looking at Google Flights. Some hate it, some like it. I like it cause I can see a map and prices all in one. Hope this helps 🙂
