UA/DL/AA $275 Round-Trip BOI to SJU in Y - 9,427 PQM with UA - 3 CPM

All three carriers are discounting fares starting in JAN 2018 from BOI to SJU and vice versa.

It looks like the longest routing I could find was BOI > LAX > EWR > SJU returning SJU > EWR > SFO > BOI for 9,427 butt miles with United. ($275 R/T), United allows a 1.5 hour turn if you are short on time.

Delta offers a few dates in late JAN on Delta Comfort + for $398 round-trip earning 100% MQM. The longest routing I could find in Delta W was: BOI > SEA > JFK > SJU returning SJU > ATL > SEA > BOI.


Can't post links yet sorry

Just to clarify MilesToTheMax, Comfort+ comes with NO ADDED MQM Bonus:

Only Discounted First, Delta Premium Select, Business, and Premium Main Cabin tickets (P, A, G, C, D, I, Z, Y, and B fares) are eligible for a 50% MQM bonus.

Thanks for the information. The chart I was looking at showed W earning 150% MQM.

Unfortunately, that only applies to flights where W is a true premium economy cabin - Comfort+ doesn’t get the mileage bonus, but Premium Select (and AF/VA/VS premium economy) does

DL used to use W for premium economy, but has since switched to P/A/G fare classes. Any DL coded flight with a W class fare is now Comfort+ and does not earn any bonus MQM's. The P/A/G fare classes used for both domestic F and international premium economy and earn a 50% MQM bonus. Unfortunately, this chart is now out-of-date -- http://www.cwsi.net/delta.htm
