I just found all H fares with a stop in ATL both directions.

2019 EWR-ATL 737-800
1729 ATL-MSY 757

1704 MSY-ATL 757
2014 ATL-EWR 737-800

All H fares $420. That was the cheapest and looked like the biggest planes. I don't know about the routes and the timing, but based on planes and pricing that is what I would book.

I fly to NYC every month and take the Delta non-stop flights between MSY to LGA round trip. DL began using NWA metal for these flights a few months ago which means that you will be on a Airbus instead of a commuter.

Oct 15: DL4124 LGA/MSY non-stop departs LGA @ 9:55 am
Oct 20: DL4134 MSY/LGA non-stop departs MSY @ 7:35 am

I usually book the cheapest fares available when I book and almost always get upgraded. In fact a few weeks ago I sat across the aisle from Nicholas Cage on the morning flight out of MSY!

I would also suggest the DL direct flights from LGA. I recently took a weekend trip - Friday night to Sunday afternoon...
The F cabin on Friday was... empty! There were three revenue passengers (me plus companion and another guy) and one non-rev. Talk about an easy upgrade.

The morning flight was also wide open (I booked it to get a cheaper fare and then SDC'd for the afternoon) - probably 3 people in F based on seat map. The afternoon departure was full-ish, maybe 11 or so, but still not at capacity...

There was even a random meal service on the evening flight to MSY! Left overs from the inbound MSP Nada on the return... ridiculous.

Hope this helps!
