[PREM FARE GONE] Klm: Lax-bkk j r/t $2100usd

Fare books into Z, and while the connections are not ideal on the return (requires an overnight in AMS), for those crediting the trip to DL; you may find this too good of a deal to pass up, especially if you don't mind spending a night in AMS.

If crediting this Z fare to DL = 33,780 MQM, $9008 MQD & 45,040 redeemable miles. Looks like the fare is good thru Feb 18th.

Some interesting opportunities including Delta metal (KL code) with a short connection on the outbound, as it has KL code it would earn as KL MQMs, MQDs, etc...

Would you rather fly Delta 330 in J LAX-AMS with a short connection, or KLM 747-400 in J LAX-AMS with a longer connection. I think I would choose KLM. What do you think?

KLM if you get the Throne Seats, but since the return already has an overnight connection... perhaps Delta to "make the trip shorter", also Delta is direct aisle access from each seat... so I guess, it depends?

150% MQMs since this is a KL Z fare right?

MQMs @ 200% or 45220 MQMs, RDMs @ 150% or 33915 RDMs and MQDs @ 40% or 9044 with an MQD Ratio of 4.30

oops...

RDMs @ 200% or 45220 RDMs, MQMs @ 150% or 33915 MQMs and MQDs @ 40% or 9044 with an MQD Ratio of 4.30

I'm confused.

did you mistake the MQMs with the RDMs?

RDMs should be 200%, while the MQMs should be 150%.

On a Z fare, correct.

You can simply refer https://www.delta.com/content/www/en...-partners.html for confirmation.

I had the "concatenate" function mixed up the cells in my Delta model... so it was off... fixed it now...
