Cheapest / shortest first class sectors

Does anyone know where to start looking on dl.com for the cheapest / shortest 1st class seats ex ATL or DTW?

I'm not worried about the plane type or product. This is to just top up my VS tier points (3 per 1st class sector).

I just had to fly ATL-FLL in 1st for less than $190 which made me realise it was a good way to earn TP's.

ATL/MCO is $152.
ATL/TPA is $167.
ATL/JAX is $175.
DTW/STL is $175.
ATL/STL is $177.
AT/SRQ is $185.
ATL/MSY is $187.


I realize you specified ex ATL/DTW, but if you find yourself in LAS (or want to make a vaca there), you can get $120 on the nonstop b/w LAS/LAX.

Similarly:
SLC/LAS: $127.
SEA/PDX: $131.
SFO/LAX: $132.
SLC/BOI: $137.
SEA/BOI: $138.
SEA/GEG: $144.
SEA/SJC: $157.
SFO/SEA: $172.
LAX/SEA: $175.

Edit: Oops, missed the ex-ATL/DTW. But in case anyone else is in a similar boat, cheap FC fares abound out of LAX.

Lax-smf $118
lax-las $121
jfk-dca $125
lax-sjc $126
lax-oak $126
lax-sfo $133

I recently did EWR-DTW-TPA for $226 or somewhere right around there. I've also seen PBI-ATL-EWR recently at that same price. Generally DL prices EWR much cheaper than LGA/JFK which is silly because for anyone in lower Manhattan, it's so much easier and cheaper to get to EWR than JFK (if you know of a good car service, which there are some charging $40-43 one way).
