Right now Delta is showing Premium Economy flights from Chicago to Athens, Greece connecting in Paris for under $1,000 r/t. Main cabin seats generally sell from $700 – $950 on this route, making the extra comfort here a great deal. Flights are operated by Air France, which offers 38″ seat pitch and nearly 19″ wide seats, amenity kit, and enhanced meal service – an excellent way to travel across the Atlantic! Fares also include priority check-in, checked bags…and “welcome-aboard” champagne. If you’re searching for Delta status, this works as a decent mileage run too, at 5.8 cpm.

This deal is available in March, as well as October – December. PE seats usually sell for $1400+, meaning this is potentially a promotional price, and a very short-lived opportunity. But fares sold by Delta in the US (7+ days prior to departure) come with a 24-hour refund guarantee, so act now before these prices disappear!
