Some Delta award prices are absurd, but at least when a good value comes along, there's no close-in booking fee.
I've found some good redemptions with Delta. I've never been able to find anything on United that wasn't actually completely absurd.
Well, Delta and American will (I think always) at least quote an award price, while United will sometimes say no awards are available for any number of miles.
My idea of absurd is 30k American or 32.5k Delta miles for a one-way economy flight in the contiguous 48 states. I suppose it's still better to have the option, though, then no award price for a flight.
