Delta's changing airfare

Jump to last reply

Anyone know how Delta changes its airfares based on how full a flight is?

I am trying to make plans for a family reunion in August. The nearest airport to where we will be is Lewiston, ID. There are 2 flights, both ways, each day between Lewiston and Salt Lake City. The Delta site lists a Canadair Regional Jet as the air plane. At SeatGuru, there are 2 Canadair jets listed, one has 60 economy seats the other has 52.

It is very possible that 10-13 of us will meet up in Salt Lake City from our respective starting points and take the same flights into and out of Lewiston. Any idea how much Delta tends to raise prices as flights fill up?

Also, the prices on the Delta site have gone up noticeably in just the last two days. Would they raise the prices when they see a lot of interest in these flights? Realistically only one flight a day is convenient for us to take, but there are four different family units that have been looking at options and we would be making reservations separately.

Thanks.
