    Going on my first mileage run. Flights from the Caribbean tend to be expensive so I was suprised I found this deal! I'm so excited!

    Tell us more. How'd you score this ticket? What airline? Dates? I'm a newbie so every little detail helps. :)

    Oh, I see - American Airlines. smh

    I tried to duplicate this run on the Matrix. My cost came out to be $580 for a total 8988 miles. Very close to yours but a mix of AA/US flights. However, if you divide the cost by the miles you get 6.45cpm, not 0.05cmp, which, from all discussions that I am reading, seems to be a bit high, isn't it? Capture.PNG

    Hi all! I should have mentioned that I am a Gold member and I will receive a 25% bonus on the miles, plus AA apparently has some sort of bonus promotion on JFK/SFO and JFK/LAX. I am not sure how many points, but I will report on the total when my account is updated.

    I paid an extra $20 to have the nonstop flight from MIA to STX.

    It may be a bit high since I booked it a bit last minute. I have a work-related conference that I am also using as run.

    I used Google Flights to do the run. It's on AA, are you Caribbean based, too?
