Thanks. What mileage calculator are you using? I am using https://www.airmilescalculator.com and come up with less miles. I now only need 2010 miles and know thet I should not cut it too close but want to keep my time and cost down.

Were you able to complete this MR Traciely ? I see it available again for this Friday and tempted to give it a shot.

EDIT:

Slight change: I was able to find LAX - MEX - QUI - MEX - LAX



Not too shabby of a way to spend 36 hours

Since I was going to NYC anyway, I just decided to upgrade my ticket to Delta to maintain Platinum status. My problem is that I wanted to turn every potential mileage run into a vacation...
