DL/AF/KL: LAX-NYC-SEA-CDG-BOM rt $764 (2.7 cpm)

Fare basis: VJXL77M2
Nice MPM fare to BOM with no HIP check and allows several transfers including LAX-NYC-SEA...

Delta V earns: https://www.wheretocredit.com/dl/v
Air France V earns: https://www.wheretocredit.com/af/v
KLM V earns: https://www.wheretocredit.com/kl/v
... so try to get DL flight numbers if possible

ITA sample prices out at ~$900:


but actual price should be $764 when you click through on pl:

maybe i'm the camel poking his nose in the tent because i don't claim to know much about MRs, but who would do this? is the mileage earning (and money saving?) really worth roughly 8 extra hours in the air? west coast to east coast, back to west coast, on to paris. doesn't seem to make a lot of sense.

if you're like me and you love flying, then yes definitely worth it. If you want to rack up miles, the tl;dr the itinerary is very valuable in terms of what you get in return for the long run. I did a 5 leg trip down to UIO from LAS but only spent $180. Definitely worth the trip.

If you want the extra miles and love to fly, absolutely. I did a few runs to Singapore the same way, LA->NY->NRT->SIN.
