Book Now — Over 20% Off Business Class Awards to Europe Through Tomorrow Only

Delta puts a specific award on sale usually each month and this month it’s certain European routes.

Delta pretends to no longer have award charts. The truth is they are just hidden. That’s why they can simultaneously claim there’s no ‘regular price’ (false) and that they’re running a ‘sale’ off regular price (sometimes true).

With all the frequent devaluations it’s handy that Travel is Free keeps an updated chart.

Key details:

  • Book by March 15
  • Travel between August 1 and October 31
  • Delta metal only, no partners
  • Economy roundtrips start at 50,000 miles and business class roundtrips at 110,000 miles.
  • Covered destinations are “Great Britain; Ireland; France; Frankfurt Germany; Belgium; Netherlands;
    And More!”

Since Delta recently jacked up the roundtrip business class price from 125,000 to 140,000, that’s either a great or a modest discount depending on your perspective (and raising prices only to advertise discounts is a shady practice).

You’ll see in this award availability calendar that the roundtrip business class price of New York JFK – London drops from 140,000 to 110,000 and is available most days once the calendar crosses from July into August and the promotion kicks in.

You can top off a Delta account with instant transfers from American Express Membership Rewards.

  1. Say what you will about Delta, but they release a lot more space on their aircraft than AA does

  2. James K Interesting, I feel the opposite. Most of the time that I check, Delta wants 300,000+ miles for a flight I can get on American for 125,000. The difference seems to be that Delta bases miles needed on the price of the ticket, so the more desirable the route and time, the more they charge. AA doesn’t seem to do that. If they have space to Europe in business class, it’s 125,000 miles.
