This is a sale from Madrid to Xi’an via Shanghai and it looks like Coronavirus is finally over! One way to identify this is with the opening of Chinese airlines to selling connecting flights and flights to China, a great way to accumulate MQDs or XPs at an affordable rate. Not many reports of in-flight service levels, which were hit or miss before the pandemic. 

Xi’an is a large city and capital of Shaanxi Province in central China. Once known as Chang’an (Eternal Peace), it marks the Silk Road’s eastern end and was home to the Zhou, Qin, Han and Tang dynasties' ruling houses. At archaeological sites in Xi’an’s surrounding plains are the famed Bingmayong (Terra Cotta Army), thousands of life-size, hand-molded figures buried with China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang. 

These fares earn 30% of distance as MQDs for Delta flyers as of January 2024.

MAD-XIY would earn 4311 MQDs 2.54 MQD Ratio while Delta Diamond members would obtain 45984 RDMs, Platinum 40236 RDMs, Gold 37362 RDMs, Silver 34488 RDMs, Base 28740 RDMs

FlyingBlue members would obtain 84 XPs or 6 XPs for the XIY-PVG segments and 36 XPs for the PVG-MAD segments each way.
