Well, we’re getting down to the last months of MQM runs before Delta sunsets those metrics. Even though status can only be earned through MQD starting with the 2025 Medallion year, some people still need MQM this year to hit a status tier for 2024 and/or toward their Million Miler balances.
So, we came across this Orlando (MCO) to Honolulu (HNL) mileage run. Except it takes the long way there. 🙂 I specifically looked for something where our friends from Atlanta could maybe make a short positioning trip to/from ATL.
The trip flies Orlando – New York-JFK – HNL and back.
The cost is $652.01 and earns $11,854 MQM. That’s about 5.5 cents per MQM. It is a Main Cabin run. But we’re kind of at the point in the year when beggars can’t be choosers — especially when Delta is, y’know, eliminating MQM.
However, the flights to and from Honolulu are aboard 767s outfitted with Delta One. So, if you have any Upgrade Certificates you need to burn, this could present a good opportunity.
Here’s the itinerary.
Each airport has a Sky Club.
Play around with the dates and see if you can find something that works for you!
