    Hey everyone,

    I am new to the forum and I would greatly appreciate any advice you can provide. My goal is to achieve Delta DM status this year. I currently have 2,000 MQM. I just signed up for the Delta Reserve Amex so that is another 10,000 MQM. I am not going to spend over 15K on my credit card this year so I will not get the bonus MQM. My airport is CMH. I will be traveling to Japan once this year on business and once to Hong Kong for vacation. For those two trips, I just want to fly normally with limited stops. However, for the remainder of the year I have no problem taking crazy international flights and returning the same/next day to get MQM. By the way, I want to achieve DM status through MQM and not through segments. Can you please help???????? I have no idea how you guys book flights with a zillion layovers that cost $500. I tried booking on Kayak a trip from CMH to ATL to NRT and from NRT to ATL -CMH and that was $1,800. I want to give up already......
    I have nothing to do this upcoming weekend so feel feel to plan my trip for me and I will go wherever need be to get miles. The only caveat is that I cant get to the airport until 6/7pm on Friday and I need to be home by Sunday night for work the following day. Thanks!

    you put DL= on whatever routes you're flying.

    So put in CMH - NRT D+ & then search by month. put in 1 day for a quick turnaround or whateva you want

    Google flights may be a better option.

    I have always been searching for a tool that would search for flights at specific times e.g. departing every Friday after 7PM and returning before midnight on Sunday. The destination is open. I do this with google flights but more often than not, the departure times do not suit me.

    You might want to also sign up to one or two DL specific boards, such as deltapoints.com

    That was ALSO, not INSTEAD :)

    I think you can make the 30K spend BTW if you get creative -- don't give up. 15K MQMs are very significant!
