    Considering a quick trip from CHA to GPT leaving 7/1 returning 7/3 or 7/4. Any pointers to find the best air fare in terms of lowest miles on either Delta or AA?

    DL often drops the miles required for its award tickets shortly before the trip--i.e., less than two weeks in advance. However, this is a holiday period so there might not be any reasonable award tickets available. Consider less popular times and days. Also, look for MEM rather than ATL connections.

    May be academic - I don't see availability at this time

    Also for DL, be sure you're logged in when you search. DL makes additional domestic coach award inventory available to elites.
