Delta's new "availability" calendar
« on: February 02, 2015, 06:54:26 AM »
I thought I started to notice a trend with Delta's domestic availability from the NY area, so I checked a bunch of cities and I came up with the following (all nonstops):
JFK-CVG


JFK-CLE


JFK-DTW


JFK-ORD


JFK-PIT


NYC-MKE


Want to only spend 12.5K for that domestic one way?
Wait until Feb 24.

Willing to spend 5K more?

You can go Feb 17.

I can't imagine this is a coincidence.
2 weeks and 3 weeks out are big dates when fares go up for the LCCs, and I would assume someone at Delta decided to follow suit with the miles availability.

in general the 12.5/25k round trip has disappeared comparing to the availability prior 2015

Delta also doesnt have a close-in fee.

Maybe this is their version.
