More interesting to me, they have non-stop SFO-PHL for $839.20, SFO-EWR for $859.20, and maybe even SFO-PIT for $685.20.
ONLY on short hauls like ORD-IAD. Long hauls with 3 cabins like LAX/SFO-IAD/ORD are blocked.

The lowered prices are strategic price alignment with Continental's everyday cheap BUP/YUP and discounted A fares.

I guess they didn't block the 3 cabins as aggresively as the ONT/TPA fare. I know 946-947 are blocked LAX-IAD-LAX.

If you want mileage, the D fare is $550 more.
Now that would be the first time SU used O (their business award class) for paid bookings

$343 OW DL+others HPN-LAX (New York alternate airport)

Looks to be a match of FL's J fares (AA & NW are matching too, but don't have an F cabin out of HPN)

mid July sample:

Fare (A1): DL HPNLAX QA21UPSR fare $299.53
Tax: US Transportation Tax $22.47
Tax: US September 11th Security Fee $5.00
Tax: US Passenger Facility Charge $9.00
Tax: US Flight Segment Tax $7.20
Total for 1 adult passenger: $336

Shame that DL is only rolling out these good first class fares AFTER the 3xMQM promo.

I think its because it is in response to United's First Class airfare sale. Delta didn't originate the current sale.

On that DL A fare, the booking was QAxxxx, so would that not get the full triple anyway?

First and Business NEVER earned triple (outside a promotion). F and J earn 150% miles and mqms.

That promo is what I was responding to (Herb687's post)

I see from a current thread in the DL forum that the A/QUP fare does appear to earn 150% EQM during non-promotions.

The QUP is the fare basis, not the booking class. A is First class, no matter how you slice it, thus, you earn the same miles/mqms as a full fare first class ticket; 150%.

haha, as I matter of fact, I see you were over there as well!
