    Would it be possible to do a MR from LA over a wkend, friday night to sunday night and get 25k on Oneworld /AA at a decent price? Below $700 or this is a dream?

    25,000 miles, 48 hours... means 520+ miles/hour non-stop for 48 hours.

    Well if you have any ongoing double miles promos or you can earn extra miles based on status that can be greatly reduced :)

    Or fly paid F. Might make the < $700 more difficult, though :)

    I assume the goal is to earn EQM, not RDM.

    I was going to edit and add that the budget was the obstacle :)

    I think you might be able to get 19-19k, but 25k would be very difficult.

    What about splitting the EQMs needed into two trips to either stretch out the cost or allow more time to prepare for the cost of the second trip? I was looking at a round trip to SEA, and it yielded a lot of miles for me. Although it's not enough to fully cover what I need, I can take two of those trips at $400 each instead of going further away at a higher fare. I considered an additional round trip to LGW or LGA, but the fares are almost double right now.

    How about 16k EQMs over the 4 day July 4th weekend? Would the holiday prices kill me? Would my wife? Where would you route to for the run if leaving out of STL? Looking to maintain my platinum offer past 8-31-13.
