Yesterday I saw several reports of Delta elites and Delta co-branded credit card holders having access to reduced mileage awards to Europe. I wasn’t able to dig into that myself until now, and it seems that today anyone can access the reduced mileage awards! The reduced prices start at just 21,000 miles each way to Europe in economy and 43,500 miles each way in business class on many routes from the middle of the country and east.
Those in the western United States have higher reduced rates starting at 50,000 miles each way for business class and 24,000 each way in economy. The normal prices start at 62,500 miles each way in business class and 30,000 miles each way in economy.
I saw availability at the reduced rates on certain dates from October – February on a variety of routes. Being able to fly to Europe and back in business class from a city like Houston for just 87,000 miles round trip with no fuel surcharges is pretty great. Yes, we all love to bash Delta Skymiles from time to time but this is a solid deal if the availability lines up with when you want to travel.
If you don’t have enough Delta miles to book the trip you want, remember you can transfer miles in 1:1 from Amex Membership Rewards card like the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express.
Anyone taking advantage and booking a reduced mileage award to Europe with their Skymiles?
