Wow, I've been paying 239 for the BOS/SFO runs but just put a LAX run on hold. I don't really need it but what the hell. I sure wish I had waited for these prices! By my math, if you are PLT 10 RT runs at 179.20 each nets you EXP and 208,880 RDM at .0086 cpm! Not bad at all! And if you are going from BOS you can do it all overnight and not miss a day at work!
Cheapest I see is $199 AI here. I'm actually thinking about taking a week off work in May and doing 5 or 6 of these in a row. I'd have to drive from DTW though since the cost of a short positioning flight from DTW to BOS costs more than a transcon!
Got it all lined up....six consecutive BOS-California RTs with another AA positioning flight. Also need a $117 positioning flight on DL for which I'll use part of my $2,800 DL credit from the last TYP fixed redemption.
Got everything reserved until tomorrow night. Just gotta decide whether or not to do it...borders on insanity but I don't think a better deal will come along this year. I *AM* quite bored with a reduced workload due to the economy, so I'm thinking why not? I can sleep on the red eyes, watch DVDs and read during the daytime transcon, and spend my extra eight hours during the afternoon surfing the net at the lounge in LAX/SFO and drinking. Can't be too bad, right?
