Delta online booking problem

I was checking to price my ticket (SDF-ICN) for January and the site was listing options that I liked. It was via ATL then to ICN on KE flight.

So today I go back and it is now listing other longer, more transfer options and not list the ones I liked. But when I search by schedule, my preferred one shows up and price is doubled.

What do you think is going on?

Flight availability and pricing is CONSTANTLY changing. If you found an intinerary that you liked, you should have bought it then. Since you waited, the price of the flight that you wanted has gone up.

Be patient, it's only September. DL likes to play games with the people who feel the need to book way in advance. Keep checking and have it booked 1-3 months in advance and you'll be fine.

Even then Delta likes to screw with you, I booked a flight 4 days ago for the end of october and now I look again today and it is $40 cheaper for the same itinerary.
