Delta has really been rocking it lately with Skymiles flash sales. While it is irritating to me that Delta talks about there being a “sale” when there is no published award chart, it is definitely true that these flash sales are providing a lot of good value for Skymiles!

This sale is from North America to select locations in Europe, Latin America, Asia as well as domestically within the USA. You can read complete details here.
