More often than not coach is more expensive than this and premium economy is similar to flying an upgraded domestic first class — much more room and personal space than flying in back.

It appears that the greatest availability at these prices is for the fall.

Here are some sample Google Flights searches:

The key here is that you want to fly Delta’s new A350s. You don’t want to fly, for instance, a Boeing 767 through Seattle because though that may be cheaper you won’t actually be in premium economy.

And make no mistake — this is cheap for premium economy. In fact for Los Angeles – Shanghai it’s a base fare of just $150 each way plus taxes and surcharges.

Key rules for fare basis VLGO7PPA:

  • Travel permitted Sunday through Thursday in each direction
  • Outbound flight must be taken October 17 – December 9
  • 60 day advance purchase required, the fare must but ticketed by September 30 but this deal will not last that long.
  • 7 day minimum stay required, 6 month maximum stay
  • Stopover at the international gateway city permitted for $100
  • Non-refundable, $300 change fee

Though we did see Delta premium economy from $597 back in January this remains one of the least expensive premium economy deals we’ve seen, and it’s likely available from other cities too.

  1. Also sounds like typical off-peak and shoulder season times of year; load depressing trade-war with China & Singapore Air’s resumption of world’s longest nonstop route between New York/Newark and Singapore (which is in mid-October, too), where much media coverage (“traditional” and blogosphere) already has, and will continue, to overshadow others’ service in the airline space is having an effect on Delta (and perhaps others)!
