I find it amusing when Delta has a Flash Sale on awards – because Delta is infamous for removing their award chart so we don’t ever really know what an award is supposed to cost. The price you see is what you should fork over and don’t worry about details like what it *should* cost.

That said, those of us in the hobby do know that a “low level” award to Europe in Delta One is currently supposed to be 70,000 miles each way or 140,000 miles return (and only on Delta metal as Virgin Atlantic is now surcharged to 85,000 miles or even more if booked last minute).

And so, we do know that 98,000 round trip is actually a great deal – even though it’s not long ago that a standard award in Business Class to Europe was 50,000 miles each way.

Here’s the deal: Until Dec 14th at 11:59 PT, you can book these sale award flights. They will only be 98,000 miles when you find low-level availability in both directions (making it 46,500 miles each way instead of 70,000 miles each way).  Your flights must be February 1 – May 21, 2018. The most availability will be mid-week.  Here’s the link to the promo page on
