That rarest of things—Delta One Suites award space is finally available in plentiful quantities. Next Spring, there will be plenty of space in March and April on select routes. This award space is an excellent opportunity to sample the new Delta One Suites, which will be on board Delta’s new Airbus A350. Not only is there plenty of award space, but it is also at the low end of Delta’s pricing with one-way tickets pricing at 80,000 miles one way.
Sadly, the award space is not available across the board, but we honestly thought there would be absolutely nothing! The best availability is on the Atlanta/ATL to Seoul/ICN route in April 2018. Space for the return journey is more limited, but it is still available. When you consider that these are business saver awards at 80,000 SkyMiles, this is excellent value aboard their new A350 in their newest business class product.
While the best value is sometimes redeeming Korean Air miles for Delta flights, there are some situations where Delta SkyMiles can provide great value. These do include the rare occasions where Delta will suddenly release plenty of award space, such as recent availability to Hawaii. Keep in mind, if you do see these 80,000-mile awards you should be able to book them with miles from any of Delta's partner airlines at their award rate; these are what would be considered “saver” or “low” rates
While these days SkyMiles and great value are almost mutually exclusive, with constant devaluations, price hikes, unannounced devaluations with partners, and an invisible award chart, every so often Delta does deliver value to its members; so if you are determined to try Delta’s new suites, now is your chance to do so.
