It pays to check your email, often. That's how I found about Delta's amazing new flash sale, this time on round-trip domestic tickets. We're seeing round-trip short-haul tickets starting at just $177 round-trip. The deals are for April 2020 travel and are available from many cities served by Delta nationwide, including Boston (BOS), Seattle (SEA) and Las Vegas (LAS). Even better: all deals are nonstop.
There are even some unadvertised Delta fares, including flights from New York to the Washington area and Detroit (DTW) to Indianapolis (IND), so make sure to check your preferred destination even if you don't see it listed on the page. Note that the tickets are nonrefundable. Make sure you don't wait to book these deals, as they expire on January 28!
To search, head to Delta's flash sale page and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline.
