Here’s a nice, easy, affordable mileage run for folks in Southern California — or those who can position to Los Angeles.
This Delta mileage run departs LAX on Friday night, January 21, and arrives in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, just before 6:00 AM on Saturday morning, January 22. Then you depart at 7:18 AM and return to Los Angeles at 10:10 AM. Easy peasy. No crazy routing, no extended time away from home (if you live in the LA area). Delta tells us it’ll earn 4,684 MQM and $147 MQD for $181.20 in Main Cabin. That’s about 3.9 cents per MQM. No, it’s not a ton of MQM. But the CPMQM cost is decent, the run doesn’t take a lot of time, and some of us like doing mileage runs just for fun 🙂 .
Plus, if you don’t live in LA, you might be able to fly in sometime Friday. Then knock out the run and fly home Saturday.
I did see a few other dates available in January and February but specifically singled out these dates because the weekend turn may be convenient for many.
In terms of anything originating in FLL, most of those trips involved an overnight or a very long day in Los Angeles. But head to Google Flights or ITA Matrix and see what you can find.
“Why Doesn’t Eye of the Flyer Ever Publish Mileage Runs from My Hometown?!”
If I had the time and resources to create customized mileage runs for everyone, trust me — I’d love to. Alas, I don’t.
But I do know people whose career is building mileage runs tailored to people’s airline preferences, home airports, travel goals, and all sorts of other parameters.
POINT.ME (formerly known as Juicy Miles) is a fantastic travel booking service to whom we’ve referred hundreds of satisfied readers during the past several years. I receive emails and comments all the time from EotF readers saying how happy they were with the Point.Me mileage run team’s work. Their creativity, passion, and resourcefulness is truly something special.
Get in touch with them now. They’ll do all the hard work for you. (Well, you have to fly the trip on your own. But that’s the fun part, right?)
