DL Simplifair Question

Thu Jan 06, 2005 1:11 am

Has anyone priced itineraries yet? I looked out to mid-feb on a few flights from ATL to various cities on the eastern seaboard and it appeared to me that they jacked the rates? 538 from ATL-BDL I am a very regular flyer on Delta. I always thought that the benefit of these programs were to tell the customer what the criteria was to meet each fair? Does anyone have some greater insight?

Thanks,
dg

BNA-ATL was 880 dollars now it is 200.40.

Did you choose "deeply discouted" coach on the website?


I got the following for BDL-ATL in mid February 238.40 in U class of service

do you think that pax will be eligible to upgrade to first for a fee from any class? Or do you think it will still be limited to the non-deeply discounted?

Their website has it all spelled out you can upgrade of any fare with availablitity it is unlimited for Medallion members.

I bought a M fare for next week as a Gold Medallion, I was able to upgrade instatntly!

YBM fares are upgradable for all medallions at the time of booking.

All the discount coasch fares are 5 days 3 days and 1 day for each level.

I am very happy with this!

Fares seem to be more than reasonable. I got LAX-PBI in First for $409. AirTran was $324 for their J class product. It is worth the extra $$ to me for the FF miles and extra room.

i just checked a mileage run GSO-LAX out...before, it was $315 with a Saturday night stay, about $400 if I just did an out-and-back...now it's down to $315 for an out-and-back...I'll be doing some mileage runs out to LAX this year if those prices can just fall a little more (they come down into the $200s in the fall).

CO $219.00
UA $249.00
US $215.00
NW $209.00
FL $209.00
