The value of Delta SkyMiles has fluctuated over the years as the airline has eliminated award charts and the price of some awards shot up. However, there are still ways to score some excellent award flight deals with your SkyMiles. As first reported by Frequent Miler, there are some round-trip flights left to Europe starting at just 32,000 SkyMiles in economy and 40,000 miles round-trip in Comfort+.

While availability is limited and we found the most availability from Delta's hub airports, you may find some bargains if you're willing to use a flexible date search and mix and match the flights.
