Encyclopedia > Mileage run

A mileage run is a paid/revenue airline trip designed solely for gaining maximum frequent flyer miles and/or points for no other reason than to gain the miles and/or points.[1] A Frequent Flyer Program is a service offered by many airlines to reward customer loyalty. ...

Sometimes, a frequent flyer will embark on a mileage run for the purpose of boosting their frequent flyer account balance. For example, if a person is trying to raise their frequent flyer balance to a certain level in order to redeem an award ticket, they may "take a mileage run" in order to boost their account balance. This scenario is particularly useful if the traveler has already achieved some sort of elite status as they will be earning bonus miles on top of their actual flight miles, and consequently they will reach their goal much sooner.[1]
