Do you travel just for the miles?

In December, frequent fliers take a look at their mileage statements and, finding them a bit shy of elite status, sometimes make mad dashes just to rack up the miles.

Do you do this, or does someone you know do it? If so, I'd love to speak to you for a story! Please e-mail me at jwooldridge@herald.com.

Jane, I did my first MR last December on AA from FLL-OAK via DFW, same day return. At the time I did it for the miles and since there was a double bonus for going through Dallas, I ended up with about 12500 for a $130 trip. But what I didn't know I'd enjoy even more is a day away from work. I needed a rest day and I spent my time reading and sleeping, had a decent lunch at the Oakland airport and returned well rested and in great spirits.

I ended up doing another 3 months later FLL-LAX-SFO-LAX-FLL for the same reason.
