I've never understood these mileage runs

The $2500 option seems to value your time at around $90 per hour so any self evaluation higher means just paying the cash is the way to go.

Time spent in the air isn't lost time, though...

To clarify, I wouldn't advocate a pure mileage run. I'd stay at least a couple of nights.

like

Sometimes flights to China can be really cheap this time of year (400-600). Long trip but you'll get the miles you need.

Why?

I can pay $700 for a solid mileage run and lock down EP or I can pay AA $2499 for EP.

8000 miles at 400-500 mph (factoring in taxi time) is probably north of 20 hours of your life. What is your time worth?

It's worth an entire year of (hopefully) first class upgrades

I would do but try for a stopover to break it up, it'll feel like vacation
