If you missed out on the 50% action- no worries, American Express is running a 40% Delta transfer bonus until June 30, 2011. I wrote about this in April, but it was overshadowed by the 50% showstopper.

Register here.
In order to get the 40% bonus, you need to transfer 100,000 or more Amex points. If under 100,000 points, the bonus is 25%.

The T&C state it must be done in one transfer and you should be prepared to wait up to 4 weeks to get the bonus, though lately they’ve been posting immediately. is a bit tricky to use, but finding good awards can be done with some effort. I just booked several clients on low-level business awards to Europe this summer for 100,000 miles a person. Delta also allows a stopover and an open jaw, so be sure to take full advantage of that when booking your award. Air France is running their A380 aircraft from Washington Dulles and Montreal to Paris this summer, so there is a ton of low level awards on those routes – often times the hardest part is getting a low level domestic Delta flight to one of those gateways.

I’ve also noticed a ton of award space on Delta’s JFK-ZRH and JFK-FRA. Have you seen any other routes that have particularly good low level award availability?

    About a month ago I looked Washington DC to Paris in Business which is an AirFrance A380 and it showed good availability on the Delta site. I haven’t checked since.

    Thanks for the heads up on this, I transferred 100,000 points and got my 40,000 bonus miles instantly this time. In the past it took about a month to get the bonus points.

    What is better to choose – from Montreal to Paris or from IAD to Paris on A380, Air France in business? I’ve noticed that Montreal flight is shorter (about 6 1/2 hours). Does it affect service (food, etc)? I ‘like’ more IAD-CDG route, but I can get to IAD from ATL only in coach, while there are many business seats on ATL-YUL route.
