Excellent Business Class Availability Between NYC and London on Delta and Virgin Atlantic
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here – Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express
Delta's site is currently showing a ton of business class award availability between New York (JFK) and London (LHR) through the end of the schedule for both Delta and Virgin Atlantic-operated flights. You can book one-way flights from 70,000 SkyMiles, and there seem to be seats on just about every day for the next several months. The best thing about this is that there are plenty of seats available in the summer months, so if you're thinking of planning a summer Euro trip, now's a great time to book.
Unlike a few weeks ago, where AA.com showed amazing business class availability on Finnair from the US to Europe, these seats aren't 'phantom' awards — you're actually able to book them.
Your flights will be operated either by Delta with its Delta One product, or Virgin Atlantic with the Upper Class product. Both feature lie-flat seats but differ in style and food offerings. If you're in need of some more SkyMiles, consider applying for the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express, which is currently offering a bonus of 30,000 SkyMiles after spending $1,000 within the first three months of account opening but if you have the required miles now, don't wait to book.
