5900 miles needed: MR ideas from SFO area?

Hi,

I have until Nov 23 to earn 5910 more miles or I'll lose my status.
Any ideas for a MR from SFO/SJC/OAK?

Thanks,
Thomas

One trip from SFO to HKG on SQ will give you about 6900 miles. Make sure you book Flexisaver fare.

Never forget that as A3*G you can buy 2000 status miles. A mileage run generating only 4000 miles might be easier to find.

Good point, I'll keep that in mind!

First I can think of is hopping on a SK flight to Copenhagen - if I remember right even economy would give you 100%.

Same would count for flying Ethiopian out of LAX to DUB if you dont mind a positioning flight - but be aware off the non-earning business promo 'P' class. But almost all other classes, again 100% or better (if flying business class).

AC Business class earns 200% of miles with 1000mi minimum per leg.

A one way ticket YVR-YYC-SFO in P-cl costs about USD300 and earns 3035mi...
