Sorry for not being clear.

I started off with a RT on Delta metal at 240K/ticket. I then was able to secure a KE ticket on the return at "low" and then a couple week later was also able to get KE on the outbound.

Bottom line is that I was able to get the 2 tix at 120K after working at it for literally a couple months. Takes a good agent, persistence and some luck on the timing!
