    I am looking to just get away for a day or two, and possibly rack up some miles. 0-1 night stay, anywhere is fine. Looking for anything under $250 or so, and doesn't need to be MR worthy... Any days in next 30 days would work.

    I'm not finding much, but I thought I would put the question out here..

    No status
    Delta
    DTW or FNT or LAN

    Thanks!

    Harder to find fares when you are in a hub. Your best bet would likely be a IST fare.

    Yes, possibly from ORD...just did ORD-CDG-IST return last weekend.

    ITA is showing ORD-AMS-IST return for $568 on the following dates:
    Depart 16 Feb, return 18 Feb
    Depart 22 Feb, return 24 Feb
    Depart 1 or 2 Mar, return 3 or 4 Mar

    Istanbull is a great city!

    I like the DTW airport, was there in January with my son. Loved the train, loved the Westin and loved the snow. Sucks that you are hub captive, though...

    What's you budget? time constraints? DTW has LOTS of Asia jumps, which would give you great MQMs.

    I agree, I'd shoot for that. Positioning from a Delta hub may add $300 to your fare, but still worth the MQMs and the fun of being in a different country!
