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 the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points (on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year). 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.

While Peru is filled with plenty of wonders, Machu Picchu takes the prize for the most well known. Whether you want to go explore the Inca ruins yourself or the floating grass islands of Lake Titicaca or the “poor man’s Galapagos” of Islas Ballestas, you’ll want to be well-rested before your adventure. What better way to do so than to fly in lie-flat business class down to Peru in Delta One?

Today, we are seeing cheap flights to Lima (LIM) from a number of US cities — including Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Boston (BOS), New Orleans (MSY), Nashville (BNA), Austin (AUS), Hartford (BDL), Jacksonville (JAX) and Buffalo (BUF) — starting at just $837 round-trip.

While the domestic flights will be on an aircraft that has a standard recliner seat, the flight from Atlanta to Lima has a lie-flat business class product. In fact, TPG has reviewed this exact flight a few years back.
