DL: COS-ATL-MCI-ATL-PHX $324 ai RT 3.9 cpm

I didn't have anything planned over Martin Luther King weekend, had a $230 ecert to use, and I have that Monday off, so I decided to see what I could come up with for a MR. This combines a PHX-MCI fare basis with a COS-MCI fare basis. It will take a total of 3 days to complete. I will get a hotel in MCI, which is fine with me because I will go out and have some KC BBQ and a few beers. The second night I will be on a redeye from PHX to ATL so no hotel needed. With my cert the whole flight cost less than $100 out of pocket and will net me ~8300 miles. Here is my itinerary:

Colorado Springs (COS) to Kansas City (MCI) - Sat, Jan 19
Colorado Springs (COS) to Atlanta (ATL) - Sat, Jan 19
Delta 1040 Dep: 6:20AM Arr: 11:12AM 2h 52m Boeing 737 Economy (T)
Layover in ATL 2h 16m

I'm trying to piece this together with LAS as I'll be trying to escape the CES show next week. These bookings are legit Mr. JimmyJoe. On a side note, and not to hijack this thread, but I see that LAS-MSP-AUS(tin, TX) is $212 ai with DL (4.53cpm and 4686MQM). Would be nice to incorporate AUS into the op's itinerary.

I used a combination of ITA Matrix and Google flights to find it. Once I discovered the 2 different fare basis with good cpm on both I just played around and forced routing through ATL multiple times to get the lowest cpm possible for this routing. I had a difficult time trying to book it, but ended up getting it done by booking 2 individual multi city segments on DL.com So I booked COS-ATL-MCI-ATL-PHX as one multi segment itinerary for ~$158 and PHX-ATL-MCI-ATL-COS as a second multi segment itinerary for $~164.
