40K to DL Diamond - MR Suggestions?

Somehow, with very little business travel, I managed to be in a position where I could earn DM by year-end with a little effort.

After my trip to SYD in a few weeks, I'll be about 40,000 miles short. I have the following RT travel planned through Dec 2012:

JFK-DEN (Sept 20-23)
JFK-PDX (Sept 17-21)
JFK-EZE (Nov 16-Dec 3)
JFK-CDG (Dec 20-26)

If I flew all of these direct, I'd net 26k MQMs. While these wouldn't be true MRs, am open to routing and spending a little extra money to maximize miles earned. Have flexibility on these dates by about a day either way. Any routing suggestions?

Consider adding BOS-SIN-BOS .... one MR should do the trick.



AA/UA/DL: BOS-SIN <$1100 RT AI 4.3 - 4.8 cpm possible
