Pretty sure it's round trip as the writing in the image indicates, and r/t delta search results don't populate with per-direction pricing, they populate the r/t price with taxes, as the image says.

Okay, I see what happened. It's an RT booking with a discount F fare on outbound and a full F for the return. However, the full F one-way fares are $8K+ between MSP and LAX ($8198.30 to be specific) --

Might I suggest booking the $1,200 fare and doing a SDC to the 8:45 departure

I'm actually really surprised that delta isn't running more MSP-BOS service on the Monday after.

Currently they only have 2 MD-90s scheduled, one with a 1AM departure and one with a 5:45PM departure on Monday.

On a normal Monday (for instance 2/19) there are 6 MSP-BOS Non Stops. Some reason Delta thinks they should draw down capacity at MSP for the super bowl.... #smh

It looks like you're only seeing the flights with availability. DL (and others) have added substantial additional capacity (as indicated by another poster) but those flights are sold out. I wonder what the UA 3:30AM flight is going to be like?

Ah, looks like Delta.com is only showing available flights, hiding all the sold out flights.
