Man, oh, man. I miss Delta’s Status Accelerator. It was great for the nine-ish months we enjoyed it last year. Alas, we’re back to “normal” earnings. But there are still some decent mileage runs to be found. Like this New York (JFK) to San Francisco (SFO) single-day Delta Air Lines mileage run yielding 5,172 MQM and $149 MQD for $189.20. That computes to about 3.7 CPMQM.
Delta flies 767s between JFK and SFO. Medallion members — especially higher tier elites like Diamonds and Platinums — have a shot at Delta One upgrades. If you have some Regional Upgrade Certificates to burn, this could be a fun way to use them.
I found a few several dates through mid-March. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays seem to be the sweet spots.
You have just over five hours in SFO. That’s enough time to take a BART train into the city for a fun lunch or some limited sightseeing.
