Credit goes to TheBOSman for this excellent run between Boston and Portland. Very few same-day turns were available when I checked, but here’s one I found out in February 2013. Remember what I said this morning? Now is the time to start booking any mileage runs you might need for next year’s status. However, one-night stays can be found more frequently, including in January and December. I found the most availability for transit through Houston, which I prefer because there are no regional jets and my upgrade chances tend to be better. But LAX will get you more miles.
Still, at just under $240 for 6,832 miles, that comes out to 3.5 CPM, a very nice price these days. I say stay overnight and enjoy the city. Boston has always been one of my favorites.
