And yet they frequently have award sales. They had a Hawaii sale recently, but I pointed out that even with the sale it was significantly cheaper to book awards with Korean miles for travel on Delta as Korean considers Hawaii to be in the same zone as a regular domestic flight!
Now they are having a business class sale for travel to Europe. You can book round-trip saver award travel for 99K miles instead of 140K miles.
You need to book travel by tomorrow and fly between March 1-June 30.
That’s a great deal if you’re sitting on a pile of Delta miles, but if you don’t there are other options.
Korean is famous for having the best first class award space in the industry, but they also have an excellent Skyteam award chart.
If you have Chase points you transfer them at a 1:1 ratio to Korean and book that same Delta saver award for 80K miles round-trip. And that’s their regular price, not a sale price! As long as Delta has 140K round-trip business class awards to Europe available on their site (or 99K with this promo) then Korean can book it for 80K round-trip.
You need to call Korean to book award travel on Delta at 800-438-5000. As always, be sure to call to check for award space before transferring points.
