My next adventure — DUBLIN! As I said in an earlier post, I am a 2 million miler with American Airlines, but recently moved for family and lifestyle reasons to Denver CO and now I am switching to UAL, so I have a need to get to 1K soon as possible, so I have a MR per month booked and my first one is a weekend jaunt to some Dublin pubs with this FRI AM to SUN PM mileage run. Not the greatest cpm but a good way to get 13K miles on a weekend and still be able to enjoy one day at the destination, hoisting some fine Irish Guinness at a pub…. I booked Fri-Sun but most Thurs-Sun available in Feb and first Thursday in March. I am also going to change the front end through SFO to gain several hundred more miles as suggested by another traveler.
