Delta occasionally has decent coach award availability for its flights across the Atlantic, but seats in the business-class cabin can be incredibly difficult to find — especially during peak periods and on popular routes. Today, however, the opposite is true.

Delta currently has at least four business-class award seats available on many of its transatlantic flights for peak summer travel. New York, Boston, Chicago and other cities nonstop to London is wide open, for example, as are more unique routes like JFK to Venice. There's also decent availability on flights back to the US, making it possible to book a round-trip now and save on Delta's carrier-imposed surcharges for ex-Europe award flights.

Here's availability for JFK-LHR:

And Delta's JFK-VCE (Venice) route, which typically requires a high-level redemption:

There's also decent availability on return flights. Here's a JFK-VCE round-trip for four passengers:

And LHR-JFK, also for four passengers:

Keep an eye out for Delta's high surcharges on flights departing Europe. You'll always pay more when departing London (even on a round-trip), but Delta charges an additional surcharge on one-way flights departing from elsewhere in Europe, too. Fortunately, you can avoid paying this fee by booking a round-trip departing from the US, so try to do that if you can.
