Delta biz class to Europe award flash sale

Delta is currently running a flash sale for business class awards to Europe.  Usually Delta charges a minimum of 140,000 miles for a round-trip award, but during this sale award prices start at 98,000 miles.  You must book by midnight Thursday December 14th for travel February 1 to May 21 2018.  More details and sample destinations can be found here.  This sale appears to apply only to round-trip awards.

I ran a few searches and confirmed that 98,000 mile awards exist, but they’re sparse.  That said, awards for under the usual 140,000 mile price are a bit easier to come by in some markets.  For example, take a look at the five week calendar for Detroit to Rome, business class, for a 7 day trip:

As you can see above, only two days on the calendar show the 98K round trip price, but four dates are available for 119,000 miles, and one date for 135,000 miles.

One of Delta’s ads seemed to indicate that this sale was only for elite members (Medallion members), but I found the same rates when browsing incognito and not logged in.  In other words, the sale seems to be available to everyone.

Hat Tip: View from the Wing.

Great find! I only wish I had enough miles to book it. How often does a sale like that come around for Europe?
