Delta has unofficially launched a new award sale, and we're seeing great deals on flights from the United States to London and a couple of other European destinations starting at 34,000 SkyMiles. While the award availability is limited to economy reservations, this sale could be an excellent way to get some value out of your SkyMiles. And those round-trip prices
Here are the deals we've found that you might want to book before seats disappear.
Although unadvertised, Delta has made many economy seats available at a discount, with most ranging between 40,000–60,000 SkyMiles round-trip. You can find deals on many routes Delta flies between the United States and London. There appear to be discounts on other European routes, such as New York to Zurich, but more cost-effective options exist.
Availability stretches into early 2024, which is helpful for those who want to plan a trip but can't leave on a moment's notice.
Since the promotion doesn't list an end date, there's no way of telling how long the space will be available at current prices. If you want to take advantage of this promotion, book sooner rather than later.
While this list isn't exclusive, most deals are on routes between the United States and London. There are flight options from regional airports that qualify for the discounts, which is helpful for those who don't live near a Delta hub.
Here are some examples of round-trip flights on sale:
- Los Angeles (LAX) to London (LHR) in Main Cabin for 40,000 miles + $205 (34,000 miles with 15% off)
- Wilmington (ILM) to LHR in Main Cabin for 42,000 miles + $211 (35,700 miles with 15% off)
- Seattle (SEA) to LHR in Main Cabin for 50,000 miles + $205 (42,500 miles with 15% off)
- New York (JFK) to Paris (CDG) in Main Cabin for 54,000 miles + 88 (45,900 miles with 15% off)
- Atlanta (ATL) to LHR in Main Cabin for 60,000 miles + $205 (51,000 miles with 15% off)
- JFK to Zurich (ZRH) in Basic Economy for 62,000 miles + $63 (52,600 miles with 15% off)

Stack With the TakeOff15 Benefit To Save Even More
Delta SkyMiles co-branded credit cardholders can save an extra 15% on award bookings for flights operated by Delta Air Lines. We've seen these savings passed on to award flights found in this award sale, which is welcome news. These benefits will not work on Virgin Atlantic or other partner-operated flights.
Eligible cardholders must save their co-branded card to their SkyMiles profile to take advantage of this benefit. Once you've saved the card to your SkyMiles profile, the 15% discount will appear on eligible itineraries when searching for SkyMiles awards.
The Delta SkyMiles® Blue American Express Card doesn't qualify for the benefit, unfortunately.
