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 Johannesburg, South Africa for $950.30 taxes included. The downside is that the flights are operated on KLM and Delta since I am a loyal oneworld guy. The routing is LAX-AMS-JNB-AMS-DTW-LAX.
This will earn you 22,664 MQM’s (Medallion Qualifying Miles) when credited to Delta Airlines at 4.2cpm (cents per mile). This fare is bookable on orbitz.com and the sample dates are: Janurary 25, 2014 – February 1, 2014.
