Checking occasionally, Delta One and Comfort are usually full, plus all fares are high, ~$3,500 r/t coach. Delta still shows an A332 on this route next year, unless that changes after May 2020.
$3.5k return for coach?! Who on earth pays that on a ten hour flight. Don’t you mean for Comfort or Delta One?
Example (today from Delta app)
26 Aug/30 Aug
Delta One $10,169
Need to remember that its summer and that booking now for 26th Aug is fairly short notice. British family’s who have to travel in the school holidays often book 6-8 months in advance. Kids in the UK don’t go back to school until early September. Also you are looking at out on a Monday back on a Thursday so fairly short stay with no weekend. All these factors will help to make it expensive.
Coach USD808.13 (Delta.com)
Coach £602 (expedia)
By the way I flew LHR-SEA on VS in Upper Class in Jun and PDX-LHR on DL in D1. I did’t expect to but I preferred Delta.
I also didn’t expect to like Portland but Its now one of my favourite US cities.
