    Im headed to AGS from RDU on May 15th. I can leave the day before but I need to be in AGS by lunch on 15th. What kind of DL MR can you come up with?

    Are you looking to change your current itinerary? Or book an additional itinerary? Also, what is your fare basis (booking class) and what are any connection options you have?

    Looking at flight availability and fare information on ExpertFlyer, I only see ATL as a valid connection and that nets you the 1000 minimum MQMs for RDU-ATL-AGS. Most of the other east coast Delta hubs don't help much for more MQMs. If you could somehow fly RDU-MSP-AGS, that would get you 1976 MQMs.

    Yes. I am looking but I have to book via my company booking tool so I have limited ability to search since returned flights are based on price not airline. I have to find the best route I want then search with specific enough inputs to make this flight return.

    I was just trying to co-opt some help finding affordable creative routes.

    depending on how often you fly, you might want to give expertflyer a try. the several day free trial would work well for you. you can get fare rules very easily this way. this way, you could know what would be allowed on the fare you're searching for, as well.

    it just helps knowing what all you have tried thus far. not sure what your company booking tool is like, either, so that adds a degree of difficulty from the 3rd party's aspect
