Your comments seem to assumes that DL is the only east coast option. This is not the case. In fact I do not see the value of overpaying DL when you can get more options in NY/NJ, ORD, DFW etc. In fact I think DL is the only major with only 1 Asian flight total.

Well, they could add a 2nd flight and it would not go out 10 or 20% full. It would be mostly full every time it will fly. However, if sufficient demand isn't there, that will adversely affect the pricing from the company standpoint. Of course, that will benefit the customer. The airline (and all airlines for that matter) have to determine the balance of more flights, the cost of operating them and the revenue associated with them.

ATL-LAX wouldn't be $600 in A class if there were only 1 flight per day.
