I have a question for this thread. feel free to email [email]joe@rocketsolve.com[/email] as well. Or PM.

I have been a 1K for 7 years running now. This year I am coming up short. Current stats generally speaking:

$11500 spend
70000 miles PQM
plenty of PQS

So I am not hurting for spend or PQS, but my mileage is bad.

Should I/How should I do some type of mileage run to get the miles I need, and is it worth it? I need like 30k miles!!

Thanks in advance

New to this thread? Before you ask, know that: THERE IS NO ACTUAL FAQ in this FAQ thread. It's been deleted. In fact, there's really no reason for this thread's continued existence at this point...

Save yourself some time and just google weird terms you spot in other Trick threads, you'll find the answer much more quickly...

ETA: Not much help now am I? I didn't look at the date code
Several questions come to mind. Are the perks(?) of 1K worth the time and dollars needed? Do you have the time or desire to spend extra time in the air? Like you state 30K miles! @ every other year I find myself in a similar position (usually only 5K short). I have found low cost (hard on the body) quick return TPAC's on short notice for under @ 500.00. Stringing three to five segments using HNL, MNL, or GUM in the middle seems to help me.

Anybody willing to help here. I'm starting off with FD and after spending hours on FT gave up as it is >5yrs old and there is not much anyone can learn apart from what Scott had shared in other posts. Appreciate if anyone can share *THE* famous FAQ which is no longer available.

Let me clarify for all those who will come to this thread and desperately beg for "The FAQ". (BTW i was one of those a year ago). It doesn't contain any groundbreaking secrets. You can find a lot more information by doing a simple google search. Travel codex says it a lot more explicitly.

Yes, always a good one... but do you mean, in general, or now? See the recent thread on this. It can be ticketed for < 300 a.i. and provides shedloads of EQM and a sore butt b/c of the 15hrs on the 738, actually, because of the E Coast routing, it totals 28+ hours on the 738 (6.5hrs each to W Coast and then HNL, before actually boarding the hopper)... I suppose I could do more of them but I confess, they're actually too tough to be repeated frequently.
