They have opened up inventory in Z bucket for flight -- J8 C8 D5 I5 Z4
Probably will not go lower than that.

Note that different pricing with different a browser could be due to cookie values saved by browser, not that DL gives different prices to different browsers. Clearing DL cookies or opening in incognito window would check whether this is the case.

Thanks, I grabbed it.

I took a one way buyup of $251.51 for RDU-SLC-SMF as part of an upcoming round trip. As a gold, it was unlikely that I was going to be upgraded to C+, much less F. The C+ buyup would have been over $150.

Original fare was main cabin "K", the reissued ticket went to "I".

A little more than I wanted to pay since usually "Z" is available this far in advance which would have likely been a buy-up of well under $200 one way, but being that I am going to be working all day (on a Saturday) then heading straight to the airport to fly home, I took the "bird in hand" approach versus waiting out to see if Z opened up later.

Offered $497 buy up offer for ATL-SAN, or $293 VPS-ATL-SAN. Ignored both so far and am holding out for a RUC.

After jumping on a TPAC FCM to J on the A350 for ~$600RT giving me a total cost of <$2000, DL must think I am feeling quite generous. FCM from SEA-PDX with only two seats occupied each direction: outbound $178, return $608. Astounding!

Haven't you always wanted to pay $608 for a PDB and a quick pass of the snack basket for a 30 minute flight? haha

$119 for buy up on MSP-RDU. Took it both ways. The other leg on that trip is too short to warrant a buy up. This is not a common route for me, but if it’s even close to the 2:44 listed it’s worth it (to me). If not, well, a few more MQM and MQD never hurt.

$139 for MSY-ATL-RDU next week. I really thought about it because that's not a terrible price but it's a work trip, I bill a flat fee and pay travel expenses out of it and couldn't justify the lost profit.

TPAC FCM to J for $600 RT? That might be the lowest price for Delta One the forum has ever seen! Congrats!

What route, if I may ask? How empty was the Delta One cabin, and was the offer made in advance of, or during the check in process?

LAX-HND. 23 empty seats on the outbound and 8 on the return. Offer was presented in the seat map immediately after I booked the ticket. Price for booking J at booking was a little over $3,000 which is a bit more than I am willing to pay. Looking at other FCM offers from PE, it appears $300OW is not too far out of line although a little lower than normal.

Had to book a fairly last minute LGA-RDU for Thursday. Paid $170 or so for the U fare. Well inside the window and the upgrade hasn't cleared and the seatmap shows just one seat left in F which Delta wants...$44 for.

I bit.

Thanks! It makes a little more sense from PS/PE to J. How much was your PE ticket roundtrip / were you in G class, or a higher class, initially? Did it rebook into Z?
