It was my understanding that the AZ program isnt bookable for one ways. Possible I misunderstood. Could be. The general statement was though that AZ cant book one ways

I see from a different website this statement: "One-way tickets are allowed at 60% of the cost of the roundtrip"

DL vs. AZ
30k/62.5k + YQ vs. 25k/40k + YQ
Working website vs. Dysfunctional website.
Normal reps vs. Downsyndrome reps.

Now you decide for yourself  :P
Is the DL/ 62.5k and AZ/40k referring to J OW or Y round trip?

Personally I would rather burn DL than MR. Not always is the cheapest mileage requirement the best way to book technically.

I don't have any DL miles ( I can't open up Amex delta cards now, since I just recently opened up a bunch of Amex cards ) so I would have to transfer MR. Plus IINM there is a charge to transfer MR to delta.

Alright. Thank you for the help, maybe I'll be able to gather some DL miles in a couple of months, but I'm not transferring an additional 45k MR.

He means he'll end up needing more MR to book Delta than to book AZ.

Right, but once he's transferring MR, why book through DL when u can save 33% by booking through AZ directly?
