Delta is offering a Business Class award sale to Europe for travel this summer and fall, with flights available for as few as 105,000 miles roundtrip when you book by April 21st, compared to the usual 125,000 mile roundtrip entry level price. The sale is good for flights between June 3 and October 29, 2016.

The Frequent Miler blog caught it before it was officially announced, but Delta has now made all the details available here.

And since this is Delta SkyMiles, this isn’t without plenty of terms and conditions, like…

  • You must book a 7 night or longer stay – so only roundtrips get the discount
  • You need to book at least 50 days in advance (though that’s mostly a moot point, because the sale will only last for one week)
  • The special price is only good on Delta flights – partners like Virgin Atlantic and Air France don’t get the discount
  • There are many blackout dates that vary by route, so it’s not a wide open sale

These are similar terms to an award sale Delta ran over the winter, and Delta has made good award space on its own flights to take advantage of the low prices.

Most cities are running as low as 105,000 miles roundtrip, but West Coast departures will run 115,000 miles roundtrip.

There’s plenty of space for 4 or more people even at the height of the Summer travel season…

Like Chicago to Rome in August…

While the sale is only good for Delta flights, there is a way to take advantage of the discount when partner flights are involved.

As long as one direction of your trip is entirely on Delta, you’ll get the discounted price for that direction, and the other direction that’s on a partner airline like Alitalia, Virgin Atlantic, or Air France will be at the normal price. So with a partner airline in one direction, your roundtrip price will be as low as 115,000 miles roundtrip, a 10,000 mile discount from the normal price.
