We’re seeing a great sale for Delta Premium Select flights to Europe, starting at just 68,000 SkyMiles round-trip, which is a steal as the product is usually expensive to book using miles. We’ve written about Delta’s Premium Select seats before, as TPG’s Benji Stawski noted that the product included comfortable seats, remarkable amenities and good service.

We’re even coming across deals from cities we don’t see often, such as Austin (AUS), Jacksonville (JAX) and Nashville (BNA). There are even cities with the promotion that aren’t listed on the Delta’s promotion page such as Washington DC (IAD).

All fares are in Delta’s Premium Select, which includes expedited check-in and security screening, a Westin Heavenly-branded blanket, a set of LSTN noise-canceling headphones and a solid amenity kit.

If you’re in need of SkyMiles, remember that you can instantly transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to Delta at a 1:1 ratio.

To search, head to Delta’s website and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline.
