I was able to grab 5 seats for our school's fall break at $200 / RT. Haven't snagged such a deal in quite a while.

Gotta say, the Whatsapp messages from SF are on point.

That screenshot is from the Air France website, not Delta.

Probably dead. Lowest ITA Matrix shows is $254.

Yep, marketed by AF. Operated by both DL and AF.

Looks like the $46 carrier-imposed fee (YQ) isn't being charged by AF when I compare the taxes/fees that AF is displaying vs ITA Matrix.

That's the GDS Distribution Charge, which is totally normal to be exempted for direct or NDC bookings.

If you choose a different set of flights / different fare basis, it's there - $340

I think some more context is needed. It's a website that, yes, posts some flights deals, but it's also a website that almost without doubt steals deals posted here on FlyerTalk, unscrupulously fails to provide credit (essentially stealing) and regularly labels options "Mistake fare", to the detriment of everyone.

Can't find it. Probably dead. Too bad.

The online cancellation wouldn't work, and directed me to fill out a web form. I filled out the form, but haven't heard back. So, ironically, I think my tickets are still surviving, even though I'm trying to cancel and refund them.
