This one has been floating around for a while and I even did one of these runs last month for a few bucks more. I think this is about the lowest I have seen.

I am only seeing two open dates routing via MSP both ways but even some of the weekend prices are not THAT much more if you can not take a day off.

Other bits to keep in mind is this is a long run. The birds they use are OLD. There is no wifi for most of the run from MSP to ANC and back. But it is REALLY cheap and a ton of MQMs. Here are the numbers:

Cost $232

8,108 MQMs at 2.9CPM

Bookable on Delta.com via MSP x2

  1. ” The birds they use are OLD.”

    It seems your comments were heard, finally! Based on what delta.com shows, the equipment for this route will change on November 14. I looked at booking the LAX-ANC MR on Friday, November 13, and it was still the same ancient 757 with six rows in first class. Then I checked flights for Saturday, November 14. The MSP>ANC>MSP is on a 757 that has a different configuration than the old bird. First class has seven rows on one side; six on the other) and it shows IFE and satellite TV throughout! I triple checked and it’s still showing the same equipment so I booked it even though it’s a bit more expensive. (My sanity is worth it.) Thanks, Rene!
