If you are looking to make some quick miles mostly over the weekend, why not check out the Houston to Bahrain run, which will generate over 17,500 EQM miles in a weekend. This trip is done all on UA planes from IAH to BAH and there is a same day turn available. The Kingdom of Bahrain is a Middle Eastern archipelago in the Persian Gulf, tucked into a pocket of the sea flanked by Saudi Arabia and Qatar. It’s an oasis of social liberalism – or at least Western-friendly moderation – among the Muslim countries of the region. It’s popular with travelers for its authentic “Arabness” but without the strict application of Islamic law upon its non-Muslim minority.
