DL: SFO-DCA and reverse $200 ai HURRY!

lots of dates and lots of times avail. Searched 1 and 0 night stays thru March on ITA, but have a funny feeling this may last only one day like the west coast-JFK fare last week.

How many of the 3,086 return miles are on the Comair RJ?

If more than a few hundred, it brings to mind the adage often seen on these boards: "This game isn't as much fun as it used to be!"

I'm looking at the DCA->SFO->DCA routing and check out this layover:

Depart Mon 12 Jan 2009
Delta
Flight 6766 Departs: 6:35a
Reagan- National (DCA) Arrives: 7:53a
John F Kennedy Intl (JFK)
Coach | Fare code: TN21NA9L | CR9 (Regional Jet ) | 1h 18m | 211 miles | 9+ seats remain
Layover in New York, NY (JFK) for 0h 37m
Delta
Flight 613 Departs: 8:30a
John F Kennedy Intl (JFK) Arrives: 12:29p
San Francisco (SFO)
Coach | Fare code: TN21NA9L | 752 (Narrow-body Jet) | 6h 59m | 90% on time | 2579 miles | 9+ seats remain
What's the chance I'd make that?

The problem is that on this outbound leg, I would actually be trying to get to work in SF, so missing the leg would burn 2-3 hours I would rather have as face time with my colleagues than emailing them from the airport.

I know this might shock a few folks, but I like those that I work with, and as I am remote (home office in DC), I treasure the face time I can get with them.

JFK-SFO is my favorite MR. This is the longest Transcon you can do on DL.
If you are PM and upgraded to X class, you'll get free access to JFK/SFO CRC.
