The Flight Deal shares another great mileage run opportunity out of the Pacific Northwest. I don’t think I’ve mentioned Delta at all yet, since I tend to be a United guy, but this is a great alternative if you don’t want to try to get in on the RGN mistake fare I shared this morning. Delta also has somewhat more lax routing rules, making it easier to pack on the miles.
You can easily find tickets for only $242, and some of the best routings appear to be via DTW and ATL for about 4.1 cents per mile, as in this example below:
The fare is good through June of next year, so get looking! I found a lot of availability midweek, not just Tuesdays and Wednesdays, although weekend space was still pretty much nonexistent.
