A Jew in North Dakota
« on: June 20, 2017, 03:13:59 PM »
Nope this isn't a joke.  My Girlfriend's family live in Minot (MOT) and I was looking at taking a trip with her.  Destination would be from LAX - MOT. There is no direct flight (stops are either in MSP or DEN).  Wanted some advice on whether I should use miles (I have 120k Amex and 120k Chase pts) or jus tpay the $446 roundtrip ticket.  Any advice would be appreciated.  Thank you!!

Heh, my flight from MSP-CLE on Sunday was next to the gate for MSP-MOT. Never heard of the airport before then.

How many miles does DL/UA want? Do you have a Sapphire Reserve or AMEX Biz Plat?

A relative of mine was recently in ND (he might have met a relative of your GF while there), don't remember if he flew through Minot in the end or not.

Hey Dan! Ha! I didn't know it existed either. I am thinking you need to take a trip in the dead of winter to North Dakota! ;)
 I have the Saphire reserve but not the biz platium, only the regular platinum.
Delta and United are both 25k miles RT. I do prefer delta though.  Thanks Dan!

Nothing compares to the armpit of America.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I’ll be flying out of MOT next week coming from T Rosevelt NP, any interesting things in the area or on the way from the NP?
