    I'm dumb. I had to click the date box on their stupid website.

    Looks like a bonus in miles but you only get 25% of MQDs with this note:
    (3) Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs) apply to Medallion qualification. Flights marketed by the partner will earn MQDs based on a percentage of distance flown* as determined by the fare class paid.
    So something like cost * 25% = MQD? So on a 2,000-mile flight it would be 500 MQDs I think.

    Yeah, the percentage MQD thing is hilarious. There are idiots out there doing cheap biz-class flights on sh*tty airlines like Aeromexico and China Eastern just to game the Medallion system.

    Well I finally figured out our work booking system so that I could get a three-flight, seven-city ticket through delta for cheaper. Itís a pain in the ***.

    seems kind of a waste of time to me. I'm doing three countries in 4 weeks starting in July.

    It isnít if the purpose is to visit as many plants as possible. Time is more valuable than money when it comes to this trip.

    It's not the fastest system for domestic flights, imagine it's that much slower for international.

    Huh. Bellagio is significantly cheaper if I book through the MGM Resorts website, and sign into my "M-Life" account that I signed up for last time in Vegas. Like, hundreds of dollars for a long weekend cheaper.

    Very cool. I envy you; you probably won't want to come back to the Republic of F-ckwitistan.
