This is kind of a two part question. I've searched through various posts on the forums and have begun to figure out ITA matrix searches, but I'm still getting around 10 cpm for the runs I'm looking at doing before the end of the year. So, I apologize in advance if this has already been covered and I haven't been able to find it. 1. I need to make a mileage run of around 5000 miles on United Airlines (or *A I guess) out of Denver before the end of the year. I can find things in the $.10 per mile ballpark, but was hoping someone had an idea of something cheaper. I'd like to do it without a hotel stay as well if thats all possible. 2. I've also been gaining more interest in doing a series of 4 or 5 mileage runs early next year, to build up 1K status for 2 years. I was thinking something along the lines of the DEN - NRT run or something to that effect, but didn't know if anyone has done this or maybe found a better route for cheaper. Lower CPM is better as I won't be using the ole expense account for this one. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks!
