    225,000 miles. in Y.
    Not, it is not a joke, it is the delta award calendar. 5 Flights a week, selling T fares, empty flights, and they offer award tickets in Y for 225K RT. In Y, in Y! Why? (It's actually cheaper to buy a T-T ticket and pay with miles. It would be only 65-70K miles. On certain days you can even buy J ticket and use pay with miles, and it would be cheaper than the excellent leading the industry in reverse evolution of skypesos award calendar. I hope no one in DL would now increase the prices...)

    Rant over


    5 minutes after update: I refreshed the website, and for the same price (225K) it gave me the return in J now. So, I guess DL is checking the website at a rate of once every 5 minutes ;)

    Dang, and I thought UA's 125k one-way for SFO-ZRH in C was bad.

    It's not the calendar, it's Delta's stingy award ticket pricing. :(

    Well, don't tell them that using price with miles may be cheaper.

    Delta, working hard to get you annoyed every step of the way... :mad:
