They are different years, maybe there's a letter from Delta in the mail announcing their new "enhancements" to their frequent flyer program for 2024, and that they've "improved" the distances between airports.

or perhaps they include the .75 mile walk from Gate to baggage at JFK.
and from Parking to Gate at MCO.
I think I got here before I left.

I've seen a similar quirk with American's WiFi pricing.

SFO to JFK it's $9 for the flight
JFK to SFO it's $29 for the flight

I think rotation of the earth and flight duration somehow feeds into their pricing algorithm.

I want one of my flights to be slightly different than the other. Otherwise, you'll be hitting the plane going the other way.
