Take the whole family! That's rarely a phrase heard when talking about seats using miles, let alone business class seats on top airlines for four passengers to places you may even actually want to visit. Though most award space, or seats using miles flows as a reverse bell curve, with the best availability only upon release and last minute, occasionally airlines tinker with space on certain routes. Virgin Atlantic and Delta certainly have, and that means up to four seats from US gateways to London or Paris virtually any date in 2017 (and back)...

There are likely more cities. This is just illustrating what we found, search from your city...

S0, 70,000 For Delta Is The Least Possible Miles Required For Business Class To Europe? I Thought It was 62,500?...

As of January 1st, 2017, the lowest rates using Delta miles to Europe will indeed be 70,000 miles. Delta long wanted to change the rates, and without notice they did. Not that you're asking, but if you were, I'd say that's a clear sign that I would want to liquidate my Delta miles while values are still relatively strong. Delta is in the business of devaluing their miles, and this represents excellent value on an expensive route...

How Do I Book With Virgin Miles Or Delta Miles?

Go to the site you have your miles with. Search for as many seats (up to 4) as you need, click using miles, business class and then flexible calendar. For Delta, you're looking for availability on dates at 70,000 miles. For Virgin Atlantic, it's the same rate in miles every time, so you're just looking for dates where the color Purple appears, which signifies Upper Class (business) class space. From there just fill in your details. Hopefully you can handle that part...
