Delta miles can be quite a mystery, but if you play your cards right, they can be marvellous too. Whereas on a normal day you could search for round trip economy to Europe and be lucky to find options under 100,000 Skymiles, there are other times when you can find business class to the best cities in Europe for less. Today is the last day to book travel from the US to Europe in comfort and style for a mere 98K points round trip, from a variety of US cities…
Business class to Europe makes the whole overnight flight thing feel so much better, and when you can use fewer miles than most people will have paid to fly in the back, with reasonable taxes and fees, it’s even better. November 14th, 2019 is the last day to book this round of SkyMiles Flash deals, which allow travel to: London, Dublin, Barcelona, Brussels, Paris, Lisbon, Zurich, Madrid and more for 98K round trip.
By reasonable taxes and fees, we mean about $50-$100 per person all in. It’s safe to say that 98K miles and $56 for a round trip in business class is excellent value, and there are plenty of departure cities included, like: New York, Atlanta, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis and Detroit.
You can read all the full details and city combos on the dedicated Delta SkyMiles Flash Deals page, but generally speaking, you can travel between December 24th, 2019 and April 18th, 2020. There are a few limited blackout dates for each city, but availability is still pretty great.
For 98K SkyMiles round trip, it could be worth a little flexibility to make it happen! Oh and one last thing, you’ll need to stay at least 7 days in Europe to lock in these flash deal offers.
Though it won’t help with this current round of offers, Delta runs these flash sales monthly now, and there will almost assuredly be a similar offer again before the year is up, or early next year.
Currently, Delta has elevated credit card bonuses which can bring at least 70,000 miles as a welcome bonus, so even if you’re starting nearly from scratch with SkyMiles, that’s a substantial boost to get you to where you want to go, pretty quickly too.
