DL: BWI-SMF/PDX/SAN/SJC as low as ~$198ai

Was looking at flights for next year and stumbled across this on Google Flights, followed by ITA Matrix search but these are findable directly on DL.com.

11/15, 11/30, 12/1, 12/5-7, 12/11-13 and into next year. More possibilities and less risky connections are available like swapping CVG in for DTW or things like SJC-LAX-MSP/DTW-BWI at the cost of a few hundred MQMs; more direct routings and longer stays are also available for those with no MR interest.

EDIT: works in reverse too 12/1-2, 5-7, 12-13

Good fare. Seems to be $20 less each way out of SMF.

There are some SMF-XXX-XXX-BWI from $206 in December.

Routings/prices/available days vary, but the theme seems to be BWI to second-tier west coast destinations: SJC, SAN, SMF, PDX, and their reverses. Some are only available after the New Year. SJC was ~$122 one-way last week, jumped up to ~$162, and now down to ~$102 today.

(Going to ask for thread merge w/the SJC thread)

Got one for May 2017

Not ideal but hoping for some schedule changes that will allow me to massage the ticket

Had to book as two one ways to get the price. $102 eastbound and $117 westbound.

Was able to do a book&cancel on my westbound ticket about 14 hours later and got a better flight/date combo for $106.

$208 is not too shabby for this city pair.

C+ was about $55 more in each direction, I briefly considered it, but with exit rows selected and free streaming IFE at every seat, I'll just use drink chits or $$.

This is available to SAN as well. Looks available the first 2 weeks in December, all of January and scattered dates until April.

Is LAX (or surrounding airports) included in this price?

SAN, but none of the LA proper airports.

sometimes to get LAX fares (eg, on AS metal) I fly SMF-LAX on separate DL award tickets for 5K. i do this often for the LAX-BWI flight since it's convenient to 'waste the night' on the redeye and upgrades are a near certainty. you could do the reverse to get this fare if you need the miles or the trip.
