Need help for final 7500 miles on AA for Exec Plat

I've been debating for several days about whether or not to post this. After May 8th I'll be exactly 7500 EQM's short of Exec Plat. I'm hoping this awesome community can help me find a decent MR out of PDX over a weekend for less than .04/EQM? I'm already flying 4/15-4/17, 4/29-5/1, and 5/6-5/8. Any help or ideas will be very much appreciated.

You should book the $77 RT to LAX and grab something from there. To UIO in first class (double EQM) is $747. Ah, but you need only 7500 and not 15K EQM. Or from LAX you could do an MIA out and back which I just did and get 5K EQM for $201.

You still have more than half a year to get EXP. Why the rush to get it now and come up with an artificial trip instead of just getting it naturally from a trip you need to take later on?

Thats a great point. Unless RDM is a concern.

Thanks for the suggestion! I've played around with UIO but trying to book mostly or all lie-flats is next to impossible at that rate.

RDM is not a concern but I want to get as many miles in before the switch to revenue based RDM. Also, the sooner I get to Exec Plat, the sooner I can enjoy complimentary upgrades and the other EP perks! This will be my first time hitting EP, so I'm pretty excited about it.

Seeing lots of 4.8 /EQM weekend trips to the caribbean, namely POS. Not quite 4, but would get you 9500 miles.
