DL: SFO-SIN $492 a/i (2.8cpm)

As reported by TFD.

Awesomely low fares to Singapore. No same day turns unfortunately.

I kept it separate from the overall larger SFO/LAX-SIN thread because it's definitely MR worthy at less than 3cpm.

I found a run SFO-SEA-ICN-SIN and reverse. Only $505.00

The ICN-SIN-ICN is operated by Korean Air. It arrives at 11:50 pm and returns to ICN at 1:10 am.

Is this a legit connection or is there the possibility of getting DL to book a "better" route?

Seems pretty tight to me!

Be careful if flying with KE. If the flight is KE coded, you get no MQMs. If it has a DL flight number marketed, you will get the MQMs, but at partner earning which at Partner 4 is low.

actually there is same day returns for this deal and it's coming soon. However you might have to call agents to ask for the tickets per Goog Flights

You will actually get earning based on the DL chart, aka per dollar spent minus taxes, because its a 006 Delta issued ticket.

Not true. I flew on 006 stock. DL flight numbers then transferred ICN - XXX for a KL marketed flight. Received no MQMs, but received miles on 50% of the flown distance of that leg.

No MQDs as well: (2) All Korean Air marketed flights, even if ticketed by Delta (ticket number begins with "006"), are not eligible for Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs).

I just booked one of these same-day return fares thru Delta's site.

There's a lot of Mon-Wed fares available thru November.

Very nice. Have seen these great runs out of SFO/OAK/IAH/MDW/ORD

Limited dates but some still available.

I don't disagree with not earning MQM or MQD on a Korean flight. BTW KL is KLM, KE is Korean. What I do disagree with is if the KE flight is sold as DL flight number on DL stock, you will earn miles based on ticket cost, not partner earning!
