    Please do not post this when it’s not true. I booked in January after you claimed that this was “dead”, and a friend booked four tickets for his family in July after I did.

    Just booked. Link worked in Chrome but not Safari on my iPhone.

    Got to the payment screen on one booking, put in the card number, got the “flights are sold out” message.

    Tried the following day and it worked. E-ticket number already in email.

    @kazy k – nothing cheap for those dates.

  • mikeyonaboat 4 years ago Reply

    Couldn’t seem to get the $242 ones to work, was anyone able to actually purchase those? I could purchase on the slightly higher $378 ones but had problems with the lowest fare.

    Dennis 4 years ago Reply

    Looks dead now. I tried several dates found in ITA. At $378 it’s still a good dead if you can still purchase it.

    THIS $243 FARE ISN’T GONE. I found some dates using ITA in March and April. I also found multiple $273 and $388 fares which is still a great deal. See the link below for example:


    The Flight Deal 4 years ago Reply

    @Thami – yes, its on ITA, but were you able to get pass the payment screen?

    Thami M 4 years ago

    You’re right. Keep getting message saying “Oh no! We’re sorry, but we are unable to process your request. Please try again later.
    If this problem persists, please call Delta at 888-750-3284.”

    Tried a few different dates. Will try again later today.

  • ten 4 years ago Reply

    Still alive. And the same low fares available to connecting flights to Addis Ababa at $366, Johannesburg at $409, Cape Town at $477, Mumbai at $341 and so much more.

    I also just found one to Bangkok for $377! JFK-NBO-BKK!

    The Flight Deal 4 years ago Reply

    @ten – once again, where you able to buy it and get pass the payment screen? yes, it shows up on ITA but at least from all readers, none have been able to get pass the payment screen.
