No miles unless you fly. And wasting the company’s money booking tickets you don’t intend to use just to get miles seems unethical too. Can you expense meals and hotel in NY in lieu of a ticket back to SF?

Nope, have to actually check in and board the flight

For those that have flown into the city and got a covid test before and after arriving, did you need the result from the first test before landing?
