DL/Skyteam ORD-HKG $519

Probably in response to the similar low fare on UA, DL/Skyteam is offering a quick trip to HKG. You can make it a quick 3 day trip. There are routes through DTW and/or SEA. You can book this directly through Delta.com. I tried to keep the domestic travel on Delta to keep my upgrade possibilities, but didnt pay close enough attention that the SEA-DTW flight on the return kept the same Flight number as the international flight and negates my upgrade possibilities on that leg. There was an option to layover longer in SEA and keep my upgrade status. Will know for next time. This is my first international MR so I am learning as I go.

For a weekend in Feb I'm seeing a $543 fare if you book with a TA but $1000+ through DL btw. Trying to figure out how to book the cheap fare.

Apparently, the Alaska ord-sea segment is causing some trickery to occur. This thread belongs in a much larger existing thread.

That means you fly the 747, right? How'd you get that routing?

(And thanks, btw, for the post.)

I didn't do anything special (because I dont know how). I went to Delta.com and put the inputs in as you usually would. I actually had a number of routing options and I thought this was the best one for what I wanted to do.

Great find.

question...is there any reason why not coming back the next day? leave on friday...arrive late saturday...fly back sunday morning.??

I have only done SIN runs, and never left the airport. I assume you can do same at HKG?

Thanks for any insights.
