The $37 RT F MSP-MIA I was trying to grab for the Fourth of July kept failing at purchase, and now is $1815. Oh well!

I was also eyeing a few MSP-ATL-HNL RTs in F for $185 RT.

Definitely looks dead, but I was able to book 6 people to Seattle for $50 per person! DL.com isn't even working for me anymore.

seems dead. i priced SMF-PHL on delta.com, booking pages showed $49 one way, payment screen showed $1900.

expedia won't actually ticket.

managed SMF-KOA in F, SMF-BTV in Y, and SMF-EWR in Y all for under $450 (two pax) total. not too shabby.

4 consecutive weekends Fr to Su/Mon all in first/business, fares C, I, P.

DTW-LAS weekend 1 through JFK, DTW-HNL weekend 2 through LAX/SEA; DTW-SAN weekend 3 through SLC both ways, DTW-HNL weekend 4 through LAX/SLC.

All were real fares with real money and MQDs showing as earned, so there is no way this cannot be honored by Delta. Unlike the United fare thing this Fall, there was actually a fare with a price where as United (who honored the fares), was a $0 fare with the 9/11 tax being collected.

Expedia seems dead. JAX to ANC still bookable on a Euro site (ebookers.com through Skyscanner.net) but not sure if that earns miles or not. At $71 I'm tempted to try it anyway...

Well I've got the ticket numbers in the confirmation emails, so thats good. I'll actually have to cancel 1 booking (in the next 24 hrs) as I booked 2 almost identical trips 1 week apart, wasn't sure when my wife would want to go.

Got 2 for MSP-HNL 8/12-8/19, 2 for MSP to HNL 8/19-8/26, 6 for MSP to HNL 11/14-11/21
