So I have been running some searches on fares for weekend trips/mileage runs to do before the end of the year since I would like to earn Gold this year on DL, but am short on MQMs. Well it turns out on certain weekends, DL is running specials on the JFK-LAX and JFK-SFO routes in November & December for $155 roundtrip! (Don't ask me how they can afford to do this - I have no idea) But I thought this would be an excellent opportunity for a spotting day trip to LAX. As I've priced it (for 155), we could leave on a Saturday morning and get there just before noon, then have the whole afternoon and evening to spot at LAX, and return on a Saturday night redeye getting in early Sunday morning. Thoughts? Takers? I have been labeled "insane" by some people for this idea, but I still think it could work, especially if we got a bunch of people to go.
