I’m currently at the Private Room at Singapore Airline’s first class lounge in Changi. Now that I’m officially OLD (more on my birthday later), it’s time to get back to work even if I happen to be on vacation. There’s a great mileage run opportunity posted on FlyerTalk by CokeandTaco to Detroit. Connect through SFO and EWR for over 7,000 EQM at a rate of only 3 CPM!
Note that some people may have difficulty booking a multi-stop trip such as this. In that case, try specifying every segment as a multi-city itinerary, either on United or with an OTA like Orbitz. You can also try specifying some of the stops but not all. For example, Flight 1 as SEA-SFO, Flight 2 as SFO-DTW, etc. Sometimes that extra connection in EWR will get filled in.
Availability is good but not great. There are some weekends but mostly weekdays available. Check out the sample itinerary below, and don’t forget that the EWR United Club has showers, so you might want to book a longer layover there after your redeye!
