DL: MKE-ATL-LAX-ATL-MKE $257 RT (5200 mqm)

bunch of low fares out of MKE on DL in February. ($235-$257) RT, MKE - LAX. routed via ATL gets you over 5000 MQMs (4.9 cpm)

Looking on Delta.com at 2/1 /- 2/2 RT in Business Class for the same itinerary could get you 10400 MQM in one trip for $692 ai (6.6 cpm)

Wouldn't booking in First give you 1.5x MQM, not 2x MQM? So 7800 MQM, not 10400.

Works in reverse too. Just booked LAX-ATL-MKE for $241 ai. So far I've got to MR's in 2013 scoring my little over 10k in MQM's for under $500 ai. Not too shabby.

Correct. 50% class of service bonus, not 100%.
