Delta never ceases to amaze me. While their redemption rates in general keep climbing (see what I did there?) they have been running Flash Sales on coach redemptions. This week’s is to/from NYC but LAX was not in the deal.

Yet, I just found this low fare calendar (and was able to click in to booking) for NYC-LAX flights in Nov/Dec. Many days with flights (and several options) from 10,000 Skymiles each way.

Transcon prices with Delta have been in the $160 range each way, giving these redemption values north of 1.6 cents a piece – much better than the 1 cent Delta generally tries to get you to redeem for. If you have a transcon in your plans and some Delta miles, I’d book this now.

(Meanwhile, the Delta One transcon fares are only clocking in at 135,000 Skymiles ++ each way. Shrug.)
