  • 17,992 miles or 4.9 cents per mile. There are itineraries that are $860 but they are marketed as the same flight # from Boston to Chicago to Shanghai. If you care about miles and you should because it’s the least expensive way to travel, American and everyone else will credit it as Boston to Shanghai. When that happens, you will lose out on a few thousand miles depending on routing. While you might save $15, you will lose on miles that at minimum is worth $30.

    If you are routing like this: BOS-MIA-DFW-PVG-DFW-LAX-BOS, it is coming at $911.30 for certain dates yielding 20879 miles @ 4.36 CPM
    If the sole reason is a MR, then this is a better return IMO.
