Lots of lie flat award space for 25k Delta SkyMiles DC – LA next summer

by on Mon October 10, 2016 • No Comment


Delta is launching new nonstop service from Washington Reagan National airport to Los Angeles, starting April 24.

And it’s serving the route with Boeing 757-200 aircraft that feature international style lie flat seats to differentiate as the only airline flying lie flat seats out of Reagan.

Right now there’s lots of award space available for just 25,000 Delta SkyMiles one way between Washington and Los Angeles in First Class.

Here’s availability next summer for 2 passengers….


That’s a great deal for SkyMiles, where a lie flat seat on service between New York and LA usually runs over 60,000 miles one way.


The flights operate once a day in each direction, basically rotating one plane back and forth:

  • Depart Washington 5:45pm – Arrive Los Angeles 8:30pm
  • Depart Los Angeles 8:30am – Arrive Washington 4:55pm

Unfortunately the return Los Angeles – Washington isn’t as generous, though the prices are still less than what you’d pay for a flight to New York in a lie flat seat.


No word on whether the flight will get the full ‘Delta ONE’ meal service that’s on the New York flights, or the lounge access that comes with a Delta ONE ticket (our guess is no, since it’s not advertised as Delta ONE), but a lie flat seat across the country for 25,000 miles is a decent deal either way.

Fares are pretty good too. You can buy a First Class seat for $594 each way in both directions, which is also a great deal for a lie flat seat across the country.
