Mileage Runs from IAH/HOU/EFD

I AM INTERESTED IN DOING A MILEAGE RUN PREFERABLY FROM EFD (ELLINGTON FIELD-HOUSTON) AND ENDING AT SJT (SAN ANGELO). I HAVE TRIED TO MAKE THE PROPER CONNECTIONS AND HAVE GREAT DIFFICULTY. CAN ANYONE OFFER THE KITTY CAT PILOTS SOME HELP. THEY CAN REALLY USE THE MILES.

Welcome to FlyerTalk, KittyCatPilots.

I would try www.expedia.com and select Flight Wizard. The Flight Wizard should allow you to book the routing you mentioned. If you have the need for multiple cities, then use the Multiple Stops Search. Also, the Airline Fare List on that site will offer you the best roundtrip fare between any two cities. I use it all the time.

For some other Mileage Run ideas, try Travelocity's Dream Maps.
http://dps1.travelocity.com/dreamMap...p_arp_name=EFD
To change the starting city, simply replace the last three letters of this link, (the EFD) with the three letter airport code of your choice.

By the way, there's no need to shout, (using all caps). Also, upper and lower case is much easier to read. Thanks.

Once again, welcome to FlyerTalk and Happy Travels!

If your going for miles, don't forget the online booking bonus that may be available to you at www.continental.com or www.aa.com

You will only be able to generate two segs on this trip each way - two on AA if traveling via DFW or two on CO via IAH -leaving out of HOU or EFD.

SJT - a cute little airport!

If you are on CO and expecting to get the 500 mile minimum or segment credit from Ellington to IAH or HOU, or between IAH and HOU, best call CO ahead of time. I think their fine print does not allow frequent flier miles between these particular airports.

Dogcanyon - I have received a 500 mile credit every time that I have flown from EFD/HOU to IAH this year, on CO.
