The one works either way depending on the dates. A HUGE warning to keep in mind that Medallions will not, even if there open seats, get an free upgrade on this route. You MUST use a Regional Upgrade cert (EACH WAY) if you want to ride up front.

You may want to do that for the red-eye back to get a bed or the other way to enjoy the service.

Here are the numbers:

Cost: $241

5,172 MQMs at 4.6CPM

Bookable on Delta.com

I have tested a few connecting hubs like SEA etc but it bumps the numbers up to over 6CPM. But, if you don’t have any RU certs to use, the price is under $400 so you could use 20k FlexPerks and still do the run cheap on a weekend and have a shot at free upgrades! – René
