Also seeing it out of MIA for the DL flights (maybe UA, didn't search).

Does anyone know how long this rate will last? Can I wait to book or is this a book-immediately kind of fare?

AC: sub-$600 !!

AC pops DL upside the head with a sub-$600 fare!

Now priced at $599.99 (talk about gamesmanship!) for the same dates in my OP.

I found using the matrix 2 days in August where JAX-IST was available on UA for $623 bookable in the airline's website.

I'll be spending a week of vacation there next year.

UA now has several dates in Aug for $601.

DL is down to $597 for mid/late Aug. (20AUG - 26AUG)

Note: I have not been able to find the best fares on ITA. Instead, I have gone directly to delta, united, and aircanada.com.

I'm redeeming certs so unfortunately the book now think later (within 24h) approach doesn't work. But, luckily, the prices lasted long enough for me to finish thinking and I'm officially booked!

Great find. Always wanted to go to IST and the dates LRD found happen to be over my birthday. At 4.5 cents this is a great find and will be a great vacation.

DL/UA must be picking on AA for those dates. Just found it out of MIA as well in the 8/20 -8/26 range on DL.com

Additional dates from MIA

7/12 - 7/19 $597 on AC (1 stop in YYZ)
7/12 - 7/17 $597 on AC (1 stop in YYZ)

7/11 works too for a departure date.
