30% Off Delta Awards to Europe, Business Class from 87,500 Roundtrip

Delta e-mailed elite frequent flyers and co-brand credit card holders about an award sale yesterday.

It’s advertising a pre-sale on award travel. In the past Delta has opened up award sales in advance to elites and cardholders before rolling the sale out to everyone. So I wouldn’t be surprised if the sale is bookable by all SkyMiles members shortly.

The advertised sale is for 30% off saver awards between the mainland US and many cities in Europe — 42,000 miles roundtrip in economy — if you book by Thursday, February 18 for travel between March 4 and May 31.

However there are reports of business class also pricing 30% off for some routes (so 87,500 roundtrip), e.g.

A quick search also showed me a few dates from MSY to LHR at 87.5K miles in Delta One plus about $300 taxes/fees.

Minimum stay with this offer is 7 nights, and route-specific blackout dates apply:

  1. With all the Delta bashing this is a pretty good deal. Also award charts dont matter when there is NO low level saver type awards with any of the top airlines. That has beenbeated to death. If I tell you its 65K for first class seat to Europe and for a year out every seat is 125K or whatever, the chart doesnt matter. Delta has some sweet spots

  2. I’ve been eying some Delta awards to Europe for months that have been sitting at 125k but not sure whether to pull the trigger. With this sale announcement, I looked again and… they’ve all disappeared and gone up to 187k and other prices. Some sale.
