On the heels of yesterday’s Seattle to Lima mileage run post, we found another AeroMexico business class trip. This one is a San Francisco to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic hop for Delta MQD and MQM.
San Francisco to Santo Domingo Mileage Run
Here’s a sample itinerary:
ITA Matrix pegs the distance flown at 7,646 miles. Because this is an AeroMexico “I” fare, you should earn about $3,058 MQD if you buy the trip as an AeroMexico marketed itinerary but credit it to your Delta SkyMiles account. HERE’S WHY AND HOW THAT WORKS. The trip costs $897.07, so you’re earning about 3.4X MQD. That’s a decent investment for elite status!
(You will not go through Delta to book this trip.)
On top of that, expect to yield around 11,805 MQM (7.6 CPMQM). Plus, you should earn 15,738 redeemable SkyMiles before any applicable Medallion bonuses.
You might have to purchase a $10 tourist card upon arriving in SDQ. But you also may be able to just hang around the gate area, too. Perhaps someone who’s done an SDQ run can help us in the below Comments section. Also please keep in mind any COVID-19 vaccination or negative test result records you may need to furnish.
There are a bunch of dates available starting late July and running through November. I also saw options to stay a night or more in case you want to make a vacation out of it.
Here’s a Google Flights link to get you started.
Keep in mind this trip involves business class on Embraer 190 regional jets and Boeing 737s. It’s nothing fancy. You’ll have to suffer for your art. You might want to avoid the René de Lambert Memorial Hamburger.
When we blog mileage runs, the deals have a tendency to disappear. Why?
- The airline hikes the price ASAP, or
- Lots of people book the trip, or
- Both of the above
“Booking Delta partner runs makes me anxious. Can you help me?”
You’re in luck. My friends in the mileage run department at point.me (formerly Juicy Miles) take care of all that mumbo jumbo. Plus, they monitor your reservations for flight changes, etc. They can even help with hotel bookings, COVID testing, etc.
We trust point.me to take care of our readers. They’ve never let us down.

Should work as long as the ticket number does not start with “006” … and you wouldn’t know until booked and ticket issued!?
Book it as an Aeromexico marketed trip. It shouldn’t be 006.
you need to clear customs as this is an international flights. I travel to DR 3x year.
Hello again Chris, Does point.me handle traditional booking without points? This fare is available even in March of 2023, which would work for me, but I don’t know how to book it. Booking directly with AeroMexico didn’t work; the rates are much higher. If Point.me doesn’t handle traditional booking, any other recommendations? Thanks again. This is a great deal.
They sure do. You can submit your request here. I’ll contact the crew and tell them to keep their eyes peeled for you!
Thank you. You are awesome!!
