So I have never done a mileage run before. How would I go about booking that? I would need to travel from DTW. Do I need any special visas to travel on that itinerary? Any general advice about doing this?

Welcome to Flyertalk noah95 and Bjacks217 .

This MR is a nice find.

BJacks217 - to learn more about booking MR's start here: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/milea...ser-guide.html. You should note that depending on where you depart from there could be dramatic changes in price so it may not be such a deal departing from DTW.

Great find!

I'm from Detroit and the cheapest I can find is ~1400-1600 out of DTW.... buttttttt

If you take a $29 bus from Detroit to Toronto and then a cab over to YYZ, maybe $30 for an Uber you can get a $1030 Canadian Dollar ticket.

$1030*.75 = $772.50 USD.

On the way back, skip the leg from DTW -> YYZ.

20400 miles / 772 = 3.66cents / mile for the full trip.

Very tempting. I've already looked at what it would take to stay in Singapore for a day or two to explore before heading home. Looks like no Visa required for US Passport holders.

Nope. USA passports don't need a visa to visit Singapore as a tourist, but make sure your passport doesn't expire soon. IIRC six months' validity is required, but check the details.

That is what I read as well! Thanks for the confirmation! Exciting... (Long time lurker, and this just may happen.)

Thanks for the advice. I am totally open to driving up to Toronto for this or any other MR. Toronto seems to get some great deals to Europe, and that's not even taking into account the strong dollar.

AdamY, if you could share the routing, I would appreciate it. I am reading the forums, using ITA, and doing my best, but I think ignorance is preventing me from getting where I want to go

I also tried to use ITA. For this, you don't need to.

Just go to delta or google flights and put DTW(or YYZ) as start and SIN as the end. Delta will do the rest.

There is another quite lengthy thread, also routes to SIN on DL, with a very handy wiki at the top with advice on booking, what to do there, lounges, etc.:

Does anyone have an idae on how long these prices will be good for? I'm trying to convince a friend of mine to join me but will book it ASAP if we know of a date when these prices will expire.

Thanks in advance.

Of course fares can change in an instant, but please note that this excellent DL SIN MR thread was started in January 2013 with pretty consistent updates since then:

If fares go up before you can pull the trigger and purchase, another deal may come along.

Thanks OP - not very often we see a good MR fare out of BTV!

This is also good for YUL flyers looking for YUL-SIN deals.
