We’re entering what (we think) is likely the final month of Delta blocking middle seats. And the great thing about Delta’s cheap Basic Economy tickets during this period is you’re guaranteed at least one open seat next to you!

So if you feel safe traveling (and hopefully have both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine 😉 ) you might want to jump on this crazy low deal from JFK to DFW.

Check it out: $109 buys you four segments on a single-day mileage run from New York to the Metroplex. The run generates 3,760 MQM. That computes to about 2.9 CPM. (If you want Main Cabin to secure yourself a certain seat and/or a shot at upgrades, the cost is $80 more.)

I found one day available: Wednesday, April 21.

It’s a long day of flying and airports: depart JFK at 6:35 AM, connect at MSP, then head to DFW for a couple of hours. You might have time for a quick visit the DFW Centurion Lounge if you hold a The Platinum Card from American Express, The Business Platinum Card from American Express, Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express, or Delta Reserve for Business Credit Card from American Express.

Then turn around and fly the route in reverse, with another stop at MSP before ultimately arriving back to JFK at 11:00 PM.

The trip is scheduled exclusively on Airbuses: a 220, a pair of 319s, and a 320.
