    I routinely check my reservations and today I saw that my wife's ticket in F to the Caribbean for President's week went down by 15k. It may have been part of the new pricing but doesn't matter.

    A quick call and DL put back the 15k miles into my account.

    I love it when a plan comes together.

    Yeah it pays to check it for sure. I've also had luck getting partial mile refunds when I book an F ticket from a smaller airport on a two class plane then connecting to a 2 or 3 class plane overseas and then later they switch the positioning flight to a 1 class regional jet. Prior to the devalue in off season awards I booked my wife on US air from STL-PHL-FCO-PHL-STL for 65k each roundtrip in Envoy(business). They later changed us to regional jets. I complained when I got home and they gave us 15k back so we got roundtrip tickets in business from STL to FCO :)

    I don't think it will go down again but I will keep watching until T-72.

    I found a lot of dates in April for 125k RT in BE (oops Delta One) - that seems reasonable
