I want to fly to Moline, IL for vacation. Seriously. I'm going to see Bob Newhart on stage outside Iowa City and MLI is my best option. I have spent a considerable amount of time at MLI because of a missed connection, but this time I'll leave the terminal. MLI has direct flights from Denver too. Except I don't want to fly direct. I'm short on miles and need do go as circuitously as possible. For an extra $45 over the direct fare, I was able to book via SAN, LAX, and ORD.
