DL: SLC-DPS Bali $910

Many days starting in April thru June.
Not bad from SLC on Delta. Never see much out of SLC ever.
Not the best connections for some routes. Long layovers in HND going and HND and LAX coming back.
For a little more on some days you can return thru SYD on VA with shorter layovers.

I got SLC-LAX-HND-DPS-SYD-LAX-SLC for $1126 5/25-6/1
Not sure about how much mileage credit on the HND-DPS. Flown on GA 887

That's an interesting one.

DL is so weird with partner mileage credits now, I'd check the fare class closely before booking a GA leg.

Heck, if GA was miles-based at 100% (which in this case I doubt), it could almost produce as many RDMs as the much longer DL segments, thanks to the new system. U get what, 5K-9K for this with DL now?

Miles earned* = 2919
Medallion® Qualification Miles (MQMs) earned = 9522
Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs) earned = $417

Would not take unless I had to go to DPS.

Flights I booked yielded better numbers according to DL.
Allthough it is different routing and a higher fare. Partly due to better earning on VA for the return.

Miles earned* = 11297
Medallion® Qualification Miles (MQMs) earned = 20470
Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs) earned = $1027
