I have been busily booking up tickets for friends and family on Delta’s fabulous 25% off business elite mileage tickets sale.
While I don’t think much of the 72,000 mile offering in coach to TLV, the 90,000 mile business elite offering is quite nice. It didn’t take much to convince my father in-law to pay the $100 redeposit fee and an extra 10,000 miles to cancel his coach MCI-TLV ticket and rebook it in business elite.
At any rate on select dates Delta will be flying their brand new 777-200LR aircraft to Tel Aviv which has the brand new lie-flat Business Elite seats. I was just able to snag some seats for my Aunt and Uncle on the lie-flats at the 90k rate!
Here are some links to give you an idea of the difference between Delta’s old and new Business Elite seats:
And finally a picture of good ole’ cattle class (where you should never have to sit if you play your miles right)
I see the 7770-200LR aircraft operating on the following dates for example:
You have to click on “view seats” to see if it is listed as a 777-200LR. If you find more dates be sure to post!
