Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
Delta's flash sales for award flights often feature fantastic deals such as flights to Asia for 50,000 SkyMiles round-trip, Mexico for 12,000 SkyMiles round-trip or South America from 36,000 SkyMiles round-trip. This time around, Europe is the latest destination featured, starting at just 32,000 SkyMiles round-trip from the East Coast to popular destinations such as Zurich, Madrid, London, Brussels and Lisbon.
Since Delta doesn’t publish an award chart, its award rates are notoriously dynamic and fluctuate based on the carrier's whims. That being said, the redemption rate really pays off in favor of travelers every so often, and this is one of those times. Note that international taxes and fees will still cost you upward of $50, especially when flying in and out of London.
