    Just found an economy ticket from DFW to Incheon (Seoul) for $1385.00 round trip. Mileage: 13,678 (6839 one way) No stops. Direct flight on AA and their Triple 7! Perfect to reach Exec Plat.

    Congrats on getting the status you want. But that's a relatively expensive flight to get to that point. At 10 cents per mile (cpm) your around 3x what many would consider a solid price point for a mileage run.

    Congrats -- I flew that flight back in May - its a long flight, although I was up front (on miles)... note that they fly the 777-200, not the 777-300ER that has the nice layflat business in the event you may be thinking of upgrading..

    Has anyone done this as a strict mileage run? Is 2 hours (arrive 4:00 p.m. depart 6:00 p.m.) enough time to catch the return? I've read that most people just use the transit desk and don't clear immigration and want to verify that is still ok!

    thanks
