Delta launches mini-sale for LatAm award travel


Delta has launched a fall award sale targeting their expanding Latin American route network. The carrier has selected 23 routes from their LatAm gateways at Atlanta, New York-JFK and Los Angeles with the promotion, generally cutting 5-10,000 points off the regular rates for those awards. Also of note in this award sale is that Delta is not only placing the lowest award levels on sale; their “standard” or mid-level awards are also included in the deal; the “peak” award level is not discounted. The tickets must be booked by 7 August and travel must occur from 2 September to 11 December 2014. There are also a number of blackout dates depending on the route.

With the limited number of routes the value of the promotion is somewhat reduced, though my spot-checking of flights/dates suggests there are a decent number of seats available for this promo. That’s a nice change of pace for SkyMiles.
