And for some reason right now saver level business class award availability — 80,000 SkyMiles each way — is wide open on the Atlanta – Seoul route. In fact it’s open for the whole family. There are plenty of days that have 9 or more saver business class seats available for this new business class with doors.

Here’s literally half the days of a month with 9 business class awards available per flight:

Here’s availability for just two seats pushing the calendar slightly forward:

Considering the cash premium they’re charging for flights with this new business class seat (after telling the New York Times they had no intention of doing so) I can’t imagine they meant to make so many business class saver awards available with SkyMiles — or for that matter with partner airline frequent flyer miles — such as Air France KLM Flying Blue or Korean Air SKYPASS.

    The Delta employee that reads all the blogs every day looking for exploits to kill came inside after watching the eclipse and saw this smeared all over every blog. He then threw the kill switch to double the price.

    The only thing that let this slip through for a few hours was the eclipse and a lazy employee.
