Do LAX-BOS-LAX-BOS-LAX starting on tonight's Redeye. Should be about $560. I know it's over budget but, ya know...it's tonight.

I found the following as well:

10/2 LAX-SFO-ATL
10/3 ATL-EWR-LAX

$214 AI - 5825 miles.

Hahahaha I read your post as 24 hours not 24 days. My fault I'll find you something good in return.


Edit: Wed Sept 30th SAN-SFO-BOS-SAN-SFO-BOS $262 6301 miles

9,000 is easy, $400 not so much

LAX to BQN or POS is in your price range, but less than 9000 miles. For example, LAX-IAH-EWR-BQN-EWR-IAH-LAX is $395, out 10/10 return 10/11, 8728 miles.

UA:$208 LAX-MIA 7080PQM 2.93cpm

Here's 3/4 of the solution, for 1/2 the budget:

UA:$208 LAX-MIA 7080PQM 2.93cpm

Mon 28 Sep
UA1489 LAX-EWR 2048-0509(+1 day) 739
Tue 29 Sep
UA1740 EWR-MIA 0716-1023 739
UA1082 MIA-EWR 1122-1420 739
UA1493 EWR-LAX 1505-1804 752

That leaves you <2000mi to go. Assuming you get 500mi min on the challenge, any four segments should do. (If this is incorrect, I'm sure someone will chime in.)

Good luck!
