I swear to god some of these crazy connections have to be computer glitches in the delta system!
|Quoting FlyDeltaJets87 (Reply 3):|
They aren't glitches. The computer is matching up "lower fares" or in this case "lower miles". The "low mile" seats on the MSP-PDX nonstop are gone, but the computer is recognizing that there are some "lower mile" tickets available on the MSP-SLC and SLC-PDX legs and thus matching these up. The user can then decide which is more valuable to them - their miles or their time.
|Quoting OP3000 (Reply 4):|
And since their awards tickets are valued based on what those routes would cost if paid in $, the mileage requirements often vary frequently. I recently booked a JFK-ATL-BZN--MSP-JFK ticket (with stops at ATL and BZN), which had originally been costed at 52K miles. 4-5 days later it went down to 25K - which I obviously proceeded to book. IMO the unpredictability of the redemptions on DL dilutes the value of their rewards program - you never know if your miles will be worth something decent.
