I’m always on the hunt for mileage runs and I’ve been a bit spoiled by The Flight Deal ever since they’ve formed. I found a great deal from Los Angeles to Cairo, Egypt for $756.60 taxes included. The downside is that the flights are operated on Delta since I am a loyal oneworld guy. The routing is LAX-AMS-CAI-AMS-MSP-LAX.
This will earn you 15,367 MQM’s (Medallion Qualifying Miles) when credited to Delta Airlines at 4.9cpm (cents per mile). This fare is bookable on delta.com and the sample dates are: February 5 – February 11, 2014.
Helpful tip: On delta.com, use the +/- 3 days flexible search under Advanced options.
