Mileage Run Help

I am at 61,000, and I have 2,000 of Flex EQM. With 4 more trips planned totaling approx 9,000, that puts me at 72K for the year.

I need help planning a 3K mileage run out of IAH for as cheap as possible.

Thanks,
Daniel

That can be accomplished by IAH-SEA with a same day turn. Will net you 3748 EQM's. I've done this run multiple times to pad my account, and around the price of 200-230 ai when its on sale.

What days can you fly? How do you other trips affect the timing of when you can go get the needed 3K?

You could also buy EQM's for the 3748 miles...right now, they're available at $0.11/ea so without stepping foot in an airplane, you could do it for $380. It may be a little more than the $230 ai sales...but it'll be instant and save you the time.

Thanks, I will keep an eye out. I can fly any day. My trips are for 2-3 days during the week spread out over the next few weeks.
