Now here’s something we don’t see often: Delta first-class and Delta One tickets to South America starting at just $787 round-trip. We’re seeing deals from Boston (BOS), Baltimore (BWI) and more. We even see deals from cities we don’t see, including the hometown of TPG’s Nick Ellis, Grand Rapids (GRR).

Note that all of the deals are lie-flat, though Delta differentiates between first-class and Delta One. All of the international legs are in Delta’s first class, with the connecting flights from Atlanta (ATL) to Bogota (BOG) and Lima (LIM) in Delta One. All of the international legs are on Delta’s 767-300.
