did you try this:


I originally was using the codes to add fare classes, but in reality, only certain planes have Business Elite sections, so you're better off searching by aircraft.

The steps I took for the ticket above were as follows:
Select one way, input NYC as origin. For destination, in order to try the largest selection, I put in ORD then hit nearby and added all within 2000 miles, which is basically all of North America. Then click advanced routing codes, which will add a line between the origin and destination lines. There you can put in "DL / aircraft t:767" (without the quotes) to search all Delta flights on 767's. Then select see calendar of fares and choose a starting point for the calendar. Select business class for cabin and click search.

You can try it with other aircraft that Delta has Business Elite too, but you may have to play around with it to get the code right.

There are codes for that too, but it seems much more finicky and I wasn't able to find a flight that satisfies all conditions.
