    Note: Some FD language being used to respect the forum name.

    On my never ending quest to become EXP, I'm trying to use my regular CCS-C1 to pad on as many EQMs as possible. Looking to leave Jun 3-6 with arrival to C1 no later than June 10th.

    I have been able to do CCS-C1-C2-C1 with an open jaw in C2 for about 11k miles at ~0.12 CPM.

    If we want to get fancy, CCS-C?-C1-C?-CCS is also an option if the ticket can be bought in Venezuela.

    I'm sure some of you have noticed a "This ticket may not be sold in Venezuela" notice on some Fare Rules. In that case, the return to CCS (or any South America, really) would be for July 24-28.

    There's actually a published fare with LAN that goes CCS-LIM-LAX RT. That would net me around 12K EQM also at about ~0.12 CPM. No tricking involved.

    Appreciate the assistance. Budget is ~1600$. Must depart from CCS. Oneworld and other AA partners only. No continent is out of the question. Willing to go anywhere.

    Is there some reason you can't hop around once inside C1 but before June 10? Usually domestic runs are a lot cheaper, just annoying.

    Ticket is limited to two connections. I've done CCS-DFW-SFO-PDX in the past.

    But finally, after no least than 6 hours, finally scored. ~20K EQM, $1700 CCS-C3-C1-C3-CCS.

    It sounds like that's pretty good for ex-CCS. Congrats!
