Delta has released a ton of nonstop business class award space between JFK and Frankfurt to their partner airlines. This flight is operated on an A330-200 with reverse herringbone lie-flat seats.

The best way to book it would be with 50K Virgin Atlantic or 65K Air France miles one-way. Neither of those airlines charge fuel surcharges for these flights if you book one-way or round-trip from the US.

From Frankfurt you can book travel elsewhere in Europe using miles with airlines with other, such as United. If you need to overnight near the airport, Hyatt has 2 category 1 properties nearby for just 3,500-6,500 points per night.

Delta is truly the worst. For example, I cannot find a single date with saver awards even in economy until at least after the summer for NYC-ZRH. You would think that this is an uber popular route, and there is not a single seat left on these fights.

Mendel

FRA-JFK comes up with 344 euro additional charge

Gal

Apologies if this is a dumb question but first thank you for posting this as I am looking to book one of these flights now. I recently opened a Chase card with the signup bonus once I spend a certain amount which I will have to quickly do right now by purchasing Visa gift cards. I will need those points to post and then need to transfer them to Virgin points. Any idea how long that’ll all take? Especially the Chase to Virgin Atlantic transfer. Worried it’ll be too late by the time it all goes through to book one of these (the flight says 4 seats remaining at 50k.)

Jb

I’m checking a delta flight from Bru to jfk on VA and there’s a $278 fuel fee. Any way to avoid this?

dan fan

do u need vaccine if you want to book two separate flights and continue to. Israel not leaving airport ?

Yaakov

Any good options from FRA to TLV?

avrohom

its hard to find frankfurt flights to israel or their very expensive

Chase to Virgin

I transferred points from chase last night at 9pm. Still no miles in virgin. How long does it usually take.

Amy

Only finding availability NYC to FRA one day at 100K. Are any other destinations in Europe a better bet?

Brian N

Other routes are available. Just booked CVG to CDG 1-way for 50K VA miles. Between Christmas and New Year.

Stephen

Heads up for those looking to take advantage of this….Initiated transfer last night. Still waiting for transfer to complete. So much for instantaneous. Chase can’t expedite

Nothing Here

Same, I had to call Virgin and they told me my account was not active. you should call. Also they should be able to hold your flight.

Stephen

Hmm I called to hold flight. No mention of account active or not

Stephen

Wow you were right. Was inactive. CraZy none of the other reps even mentioned then when inquiring!

L

How do you get to israel from there?

Susanne

Hi, Can you tell me what I am doing wrong. I tried most of the dates that you posted and could not find a single premium seat. I also tried into CDG. Nothing. Do you think the saver seats have been pulled?

Max

Virgin Atlantic’s site seems to be very buggy.

Question; my wife has chase points. Will they make an issue if I’m the one using it?

rivka

I keep getting an error when I try searching for flights using Miles. My search is one way NYC to FRA June 27th.
Is anyone else getting an error when trying to search for mile tickets on Virgin Atlantic’s website? I also tried searching via the app. No luck

ejf

I am seeing a RT from JFK to FRA on Delta Jan 11-Jan 18 for 100K, which after the 30% bonus from the chase transfer, is a great deal. I am seeing Euro 575.14 on top. I called Virgin to see if these were fuel surcharges and they said they charge the taxes on the ticket. Dan or anyone, know if a way to get around these? is that customary for them?
