Mileage Run Discussion - LAX to MAD
Apr 29, 12, 11:53 pm
**Newbie** Looking for best way to accumulate the most miles on this trip. Should I book connections separately as one way flights, or book it round trip. Also, any insight on whether to rent a car and drive around/to/from Barcelona and Madrid? Any help or suggestions are welcome. Thanks Flyertalkers!! :cool:

Welcome to FT, OnYourMark!
Note that one-way fares internationally are pretty expensive, waa-aay out of MR price range. Maybe a charter might get you something more reasonable on the fare $, but earning points on your favorite FFP is usually nada, which kinda defeats the purpose of a MR :).
Check out the MR threads.
