Mileage Accrual

Mileage accrual was estimated for ORD-DTW-NRT-MNL round trip without considering any elite status bonuses.


The prices for this fare oscillate around USD 1050 – 1200 depending on the departure date. In any case is a great fare for extra space. (Delta will soon add a Premium Economy cabin known as Premium Select and this fare does not include that cabin.)

The fact that this fare has no routing but a maximum permitted mileage (MPM) allows being creative to maximize mileage earning, but take into account that every additional transfer added to the route costs USD 20.
