BryanIAH just shared a new mileage “jog” on his blog, mileagerunning.com. At 4.6 cpm, it’s not the greatest. We both admit that. But Mexico City sounds like a lot of fun to me, and you can go visit Carlos Slim’s new museum. This is one of those cases where you should be willing to pay a little more for the opportunity to visit for more than a few hours.
Although direct connections on US Airways are available, the trick here is that you’re allowed two connections in each direction, which will allow you to boost the number of miles earned significantly. Something like SEA-PHX-CLT-MEX and back. I’ll leave you to visit his blog to read the rest of the details.
Let me add a touch of suspense for those who are interested in fuel dumping. Flights to Mexico don’t generally have YQ, but they can be used in some creative routings to bring that CPM down to zero. And for those interested in accumulating US Airways Dividend miles, you can earn a 40K bonus by signing up for the US Airways credit card from Barclays, which also comes with a 5K mile discount on award travel booked on US Airways flights.
