I’m ~5800 MQMs short of making Platinum on Delta, and have 1 trip remaining from NYC to Seattle. Direct flights only get me 4800 MQMs, a stop DTW or MSP barely adds any. Any tips to add ~900 MQMs?

That’s perfect! 5868 MQMs! Thanks

If that doesn’t work, you can do a day trip to Boston. It’ll be 1,000 MqMs (500 each way). Not a bad deal and relatively cheap.
