Lowest MQD to MQS Ratio Out There

I just finished my second DL flight of the year. I now have $142 MQDs for 2 MQSs ($71 per segment). If not for a weather related change, it would be $47 per segment. At this rate if will take me 41 more segments to reach the Silver threshold of $3000 MQDs. Anyone have a lower ratio?

Had a recent RDU - JFK - SFO OW flight that was a total of $232 MQDs for the OW but only allocated $33 to the RDU - JFK portion giving me a grand total of 297 RDMs with the PM bonus for that sector.

My first flight of the year was a very cheap $68 OW V care from TPA-BOS-TPA (return later changed to MCO due to weather waiver) that netted me $102 total MQDs and 3 segments.

Iím just under $600/segment ó $12,488 for 21 segments. Sadly, this will come well short of 360 requirements. It sucks being a broke schmuck forced to buy discount fares.

For some using pay with miles you could get the ratio to $0

No, but it should net you D360 if you can sustain it.

I'm at 27 MQS so far in 2019, with only 2,107 MQDs. This yields $78.04 per segment.

I've got 108,798 MQMs banked, but have basically no chance at DM on my travel budget.
