Short MR to rack up some miles for status

Hey guys I'll be in san diego from the May,6 to May,10.I'd like to spend the w-e surfing with a friend of mine and then do a small mileage run from either SAN or LAX on mon(one day MR) or mon-tue.my budget is around $100 give it or take it. *A carriers would be better,but DL and AA are ok.

Any suggestion?

thanks

A decent run will probably cost you more than $100 (at least one that will net you a good cost-per-mile).

agreed..I live in SAN and finding it hard to get a decent run for the 13-15th.

so far, best run I came up with EQM wise is SAN-DTW-LGW and back for $660... still not very good either but I have 3 days off in a row which is rare for me.

$100? Best thing to do would be to hop on a UA flight to LAS and use that extra $25 or so on the crap tables...

Well, it's a United fare that they're referring to...if it's available, try United.
