Am I doing the math right that this is 4cpMQM+ even on the best routings?

Guessing so, but for us IAH'ers (and HOU'ers), we'll happily take it!

don't hold your breath on a UA match... there's a greater chance of a snowstorm in houston this time of year than UA unleashing its claws of death on IAH even for a moment.

UA will match from DL's hubs, as is the custom in these hub attacks

EmailKid, wishing for an AA attack

This could be very useful for positioning for the $2,012 transatlantic business-class fares -- originating in IAH opens up routing possibilities that would otherwise be unavailable.

It wasn't meant to be

I have wasted over one hour trying to book this fare at the Delta website. Each time I get the message that the fare has sold out for one of the flights I had selected.
I do another flight search and it presents the same choices. No matter what I choose I get the same message. I have tried virtually every weekend between now and the end of April 2013. No go.
Has the fare gone already?

I do not know exactly what you are trying to book or when you get the sold out message, but DL and Orbitz priced this out (to the booking information screens):
DL: Sep 22 DCA-MSP-IAH-MSP-DCA $160ai

I did not actually purchase this, so the issue/error may be occuring after personal and CC info.....

I was trying to use a credit to purchase the ticket. I will try again without trying to use a bump voucher or cash credit.

For once this week, I finally was able to purchase on delta.com without fare change errors. I was quite shocked. I had Travelocity up to purchase in any event! Join me for a same day turn! Aug18 (Saturday)!

Thanks for the tips. I gave up trying to use the cash credit. I used a bump voucher to purchase a ticket (DCA-DTW-IAH-ATL-DCA) on Sept. 22, 2012. No problem.
I'm feeling lucky. I might try to purchase another.
