Personally, the $0 change fee and access to Economy Plus at booking would be worth a flight you can pay $150 for. Not to mention more miles earning and better upgrade chances

Can you just add stops? Not a United flyer, but each layover is an extra segment on Delta.

Either add 2 layovers to a planned trip or buy up your fare to B class. If you don’t have any planned travel left, I agree it’s worth booking a cheap RT

D2 I have 2 planned trips in December that I have not booked yet. Do I just go to trips and book a multi city trip or book a flight with a layover .. both are short trips.. newark to pittsburgh and newark to charlotte.

Book with a layover if possible, each leg counts as a PQS
