Right now, Delta is offering flights for as few as 2,000 SkyMiles in the month of March. Longer, coast-to-coast flights are also pricing as low as 4,500 SkyMiles each way. The routes to get flights for only 2,000 are quite limited, but it looks like nearly all Delta flights are heavily discounted—especially for the next few weeks.

With such a great award price, it's not surprising that the routes are limited. I'm finding 2,000-SkyMiles flights currently limited to the west coast. For example, you can fly between San Francisco (SFO) and Seattle (SEA):

Or between Seattle (SEA) and Phoenix (PHX) for just 2,000 miles each way.

FrequentMiler reported seeing flights from Seattle to Los Angeles for 2,000. The flights are now available for 3,000 SkyMiles.

While the 2,000-3,000-mile routes are limited, plenty of other routes are available for cheap. Many popular routes out of Atlanta (ATL) are just 4,500 miles each way.

Not all routes are cheaper though. Seattle to Missoula, Montana (a route I'm likely to take myself), is still over 10,000 SkyMiles for a one-way flight.

Long-Distance Flights for 4,500 SkyMiles

If you're looking to travel coast to coast, it's possible to find flights for as little as 4,500 SkyMiles. Flying between Los Angeles and Miami (either way) can be purchased with 4,500 SkyMiles. So can flights between Los Angeles and Denver—which could be great for a ski trip.

Our Take

These 2,000-mile flights are the cheapest award rates that we've seen from a legacy airline. While we still aren't a fan of Delta eliminating its award chart, cheap award flights like this are made possible by that change.

It's also not surprising that the cheapest of these flights only run through the end of March 2021—although the prices are still discounted after March. Travel demand is typically bad in the first few months of the year, and this year is even worse. Delta is no doubt trying to get some customers back in the air.

Either way, these flights are fantastic deals. If you have some SkyMiles saved up and are looking to book a trip, I'd highly recommend searching the routes and dates that you want to grab these discounted tickets while the deals are still available.

    What a treat! Our son lives in California and it usually takes many round-trip flights from Philadelphia to accumulate enough miles to get there.
    Cheers to Delta.

    2000 miles for a reward flight is a pretty crazy deal. These are some unprecedented deals in a time when travel is almost non-existent.

    I guess delta is trying to make up for the increase in the mileage required for partner airlines. Delta seems to be making the skyteam alliance not worth it at all.

    Best use of Delta SkyPesos I’ve seen in a long long time, especially since they just drastically increased the miles required for international partner awards yet again

    These seem to be great deals though to really know, I’d want to check the cash price of the fare. If it’s only 49 dollars, then the low points prices aren’t such a steal. Of course, points aren’t worth anything if they stay in your account, so earn and burn and take advantage of the fact that Delta still blocks middle seats to get a very cheap and reasonably comfortable ticket to your destination.

      To ur important point, several of these routes are currently a much cheaper cash fare than one would instinctively think historically. We’re still in a pandemic “please fly” pricing period.

    I think airlines are worried because through their own internal projections they can see that the demands will barely return for 2021.

    With the two recent massive “Sky Peso” devaluations.
    Both during the Pandemic.
    SkyMiles is now worthless for most foreign destinations.
    I am expecting the next Delta announcement to be a partnership with Greyhound Bus Lines to use your Sky Pesos with them.
    But only for short and unpopular popular routes.
