    HELL yeah. Got my Pop and his wife the tickets for $348.00 round-trip, then got myself one for only $80.00 more. (Betting that a bunch of people found out and pushed up the price.) Many thanks.!

    (Fingers crossed for the tickets not being cancelled.)

    Is there a way to modify the URL to be more specific on which flights of those days? When I change the dates, it only pops up one flight, but ITA shows a few flight options for the same price and I don’t like the one that Delta is defaulting to.
