I have one more week of vacation starting December 16th, and as much as I’d like to waste it away by doing nothing except watching movies and sleeping, maybe I’ll do something?
I say this because I’m 5,900 miles away from Premier Silver status on my MileagePlus. It would have been 2,920 miles, but United prices have skyrocketed flying into Atlanta, so I have had to go Delta a couple of these most recent trips.
Two options so I don’t go too far over the target 5,900 miles:
The easy option: Newark to London round trip — 6,932 miles
The option to just get over: Newark to Los Angeles to Vancouver to Chicago to Newark — 6,017 miles
Admittedly, at this time I have no idea what I’d actually do at these locations by myself for a few days, but Premier Silver status sounds too sexy to resist. (Even though I’ll probably have to fly Delta almost exclusively next year.)
Or should I just stay home for the week and drop a grand on food, alcohol, and movies?
