    I'm arriving home at DTW from TPA on DL at about 9:30am this Sunday, and was thinking of tacking on a MR.

    DL or UA

    DTW to anywhere

    Same day return, or red eye back.

    Hoping for 3,000+

    No status yet, working on it.

    Any suggestion would be great. I've been looking, but not finding much.

    Hoping for $250 - below

    Thanks!

    DTW is not a good MR market.

    Unfortunately that's how simple it is. DL hubs are horrible for mileage runs.

    So PHL or Alb would be better options to MR on DL? I did PHL to HNL in Feb for $435.00
    With 10k+
    I'm definitely looking for more runs :)
    Namaste

    Last Monday I flew SBN-DTW-LAX-DTW-SBN for $246 all in.

    Use the matrix search to look at airport inside 100-150 miles of DTW. A few hours of driving may be worth the price savings and extra MQM over direct from DTW. AZO or GRR or others near you are good options to sometimes see a much lower price and earn a bit extra.

    I will also work on posting much more here at MP!

    Good work on that MR! I think I better take your advice and broaden my search. I never considered SBN, but it isn't a bad idea. I could get to SBN, TOL, FNT, Cleveland within a few hours drive.

    Thanks for posting!

    @KennyTheBull - Tomorrow I start a 3/4 day MKE Mileage run that will net me 15,000+ MQM's for just over $600! Worth the 3-ish hr drive for the deal!

    You got that right! Where are you based? Any tips and tricks would be helpful. I'm based at DTW.

    Thanks!
