Looking to do a mileage run before end of 2011 out of YYZ (aeroplan)

Discussion in 'Mileage Runs/Travel Hacking' started by flysci, Nov 27, 2011.  |  Print Topic

  1. Newbie to the mileage run game, I am 16600 miles short of making Aeroplan Super Elite and so looking for a mileage run out of YYZ. Unfortunately could only be away for 3 days (preferably 2) at most.

    Any ideas?

    Many thanks in advance for your help.

    16,636 Miles. Out on a Sunday, back on a Tuesday. Right about 8 CPM...which not really MR worthy, but you're not going to find a lot of good 5 CPM fares in December. Also, I'm not a *A guy, so you should probably check to see if the fare class earns what you'd expect it to. Be sure to check visa requirements, your mileage may vary, this run many not meet it's Lipper average, etc... good luck!! ;)

    Just make sure when you are booking with partners, you factor in any reduced mileage for the discount fares
