A miserable itinerary and 30% earning for the longhaul portion on Delta. Don't see how this is much of a Mileage Run.

Link no longer works, but regardless, a true glutton for punishment for anyone willing to do this one.

100% MQM SkyMiles... MAYBE. 3 stops in China and it sounds like the longhaul was a low fare. Icky!

I love these type of itineraries. Count me as crazy but when I book a ticket I always take the longest trip with as many stops as possible. I love the travelling and seeing new cities. I especially love it when a flight is delayed and the airline foots the bill for hotel, food and if lucky -"compensation on top. Then again - I am retired and so am in no rush to get from A to B.

"It's all about the vibe!"

In the future please post more details. The link is expired so there is no permanent information about this routing. Even if the fare is gone this can be good to know for the future what possibilities there are.

Right there with you! Though I try to take the trip with the longest stopovers to maximize time in any given stopover city, even if it doesn't have as many stops.
