  1. Wow, you find some great mileage runs out of SFO. You’re lucky. Here at American’s HQ in Fortress Dallas, I seldom find really good run at a decent cost per mile. Nice!

  2. Wow so perfect! Need 5600 more MQM on Delta to keep medallion status this year and this fits the bill perfectly! Great find!
