I also see some same-day turn around too! If you're up for it, there's a sample of 21 Feb - 22 Feb around 415$. However, that one is a two hour turn around so this is for the adventurous.

All on Delta too.

Great find! Been trying to get a stopover in AMS or CDG but no luck yet. Looks like a mix of DL, AF, and KL metal depending on dates/times.

No stopovers, per fare rules I checked. 50 cents base fare...

Wouldn't it make sense to NOT book this on DL.com, since it would accrue a whole bunch more RDM booked elsewhere? I brought it up easily on AZ.com

Of course, assuming that the fare class earns 100% MQM as well.

Edit: Books into O class, which is 100% MQM and 50% RDMs (+bonus) - probably still better than booking it through Delta though.

Looks great. Thanks, OP. The visa cost and Putin's Russia are the main deterrents.

Politics aside i can only thank putin for making russia so affordable now... 5* hotels in moscow go for <$100 now!

Pretty sure most of russia is not any different from tourism standpoint...

Does anyone know the specifics of the Russian transit visa? I see that you can get up to 24 hours in the airport, but does a return flight count as a transit?

These flights have 7 day minimum stays so I'm not sure how you are doing an immediate turnaround.

It's pricing out at $435 for staying less than 7 days. ORD - AMS - SVO - AMS - ORD with only a few hours in SVO and then overnighting in AMS on the way back. Dates 01/30 - 02/01
