I have been reading on many sites (primarily the price war findings by The Points Guy) that Delta is currently having some ridiculously low fares to many US cities. I checked out a few flights for upcoming travel, and my trip to Birmingham now has flights for $79 ) + tax each way. These flights are typically close to twice the price to/from NYC. If you have any upcoming travel, definitely worth it to look into Delta (I always use kayak.com so looks at all airline carriers anyways). These price drops will not last so book quickly. And remember, with Delta you have until 11:59 EST the following evening to cancel your flight after booking – so even if you are not 100% sure, book now and cancel later.
