When making reservations, some of the flights are completely empty. I know seat maps can be wrong but I was on one last week I paid $650 and the plane was around 20% full.
Seeing the same thing, and unsure what's up with dl's pricing but have seen it lagging/be significantly above the competition.

Last night I was on stl-slc, booked 2 weeks out and only Q+ available. Flight was 40% full and fc went out with 3 empty seats (EC was completely empty). Posting this from the return flt (1182) which has 40 open seats (but had an UG list in the 20s). Also Q+ only available $700 r/t. Have an LAX r/t next week booked in K/L that is less than half the price.
