Delta Airlines is at again offering a flash sale to European destinations. We reported their last flash sale to Europe in August 2016. Last time, they discounted economy and business class fares. This time around, they are discounting their Premium Delta One cabins for round trip reward tickets from the US to Europe.
According to the Delta promotions page, “You’ll cross the pond in style with flat-bed seats with direct aisle access, Westin Heavenly® In-Flight Bedding, a TUMI amenity kit featuring Kiehl's products, chef-curated menus with thoughtfully selected fine wines, Delta Sky Club® access and much more.”
Prices start from as low as 99,000 miles per round trip excluding taxes and fees, and the offer is only valid through today with travel dates between March 1, 2017 and June 30, 2017.
Although Delta has restricted award destinations in the past, most recently to Mexico and the Caribbean, almost all major European destinations are included. Per the Delta promotions page, the offer includes, but is not restricted to:
- LHR – London
- FRA – Frankfurt
- CDG – Paris
- MAN – Manchester
- DUS – Dusseldorf
- ZRH – Zurich
- BRU – Brussels
How to Book
To take advantage of the offer, you must make their reservations by today, Wednesday, November the 16th. The offer is only valid for bookings made on the Delta.com website. One of the few restrictions on the offer is that you're required to stay a Saturday night at their destination before taking a return flight.
You should be aware that on certain routes, one or more of the travel segments might be flown in single class cabins, so it is advisable to check the complete itinerary to ensure you're receiving the expected experience. Connecting domestic flights have First Class services, not Delta One — not a big deal, but something to keep in mind.

SkyBonus never worked for me 🙁
I think its great to see Delta offering such great deals and I hear their new delta One premium cabins are worth it!
This is a great deal and I’m surprised its available during summer break travel time!
Might be a good use of the SkyMiles I racked up this year!
As Rick says it’s a good idea to try to use the minimum miles, but with Delta this is not always easy. For example, I recently tried to book an economy class award ticket from JFK-SNA for mid April ’17. Even 5-6 months in advance the best I could get was for 37.5K miles. Used to be that it was easier for me to get that same trip for 25K, even only 2-3 months in advance. Seems that Delta is devaluing our miles!
Don’t forget to include your SkyBonus account when making these… pretty good return from that for these types of flights. I use 85K Skybonus points for domestic awards, and you can easily earn a big chunk of that when purchasing these.
Ryan, excellent tip with SkyBonus. If you’re a small business with 5+ travelers, Delta’s SkyBonus program is a great way to double dip, where the business receives points and the individual traveler receives their frequent flyer miles.
If you can get in on it, this DL flash sale is a good one, but if using the minimum miles is a priority, you may need to be flexible on your dates. I checked all nonstop European routes from NYC on DL & partners for May 26, 2017 and found only 3 had the 99,000 round trip available. Also, note that a round trip to and from the same destination is required — no open jaws allowed.
