Finding deals

Just two weeks ago I booked a flight for a friend to London on Delta. The nonstop flight between Portland and London cost just 48,000 roundtrip, plus about $190 tax. For the month of August, dates are wide open at this price, for up to 9 people too! With this promotion, it would cost 43,200 miles roundtrip per person!
