If you're still looking for a cool vantage point for the total solar eclipse on April 8, the sky awaits, Axios Dallas' Naheed Rajwani-Dharsi writes.

The big picture: Delta Air Lines is offering two flights that will align with the timing and path of totality, when the Moon covers the entirety of the Sun except for the Sun's corona.

  • The first — from Austin to Detroit — sold out within 24 hours, so the company has added a second from Dallas to Detroit.

Yes, but: It won't be cheap. Main cabin seats are over $730.

💭 Nathan's thought bubble: I guess the only way to guarantee clouds won't block the eclipse is to rise above them.
