Despite loving this miles game, I do not fly that often. The one time I normally do fly consistently is from Chicago (my location) to Providence/Boston during Christmas time. In order to gain more miles, should I try to have 1 or 2 (or more) stops to fly more miles and therefore acquire more miles? Is that essentially what a mileage run is? So Chicago-Charlotte-Philidelphia-Boston would be better than just Chicago-Boston? However, if I use miles to fly, then I don't gain miles for flying the actual flight, making the extra stops irrelevant? I'm sorry if these are dumb questions.
