Delta is running an amazing July 4th fare sale to London today. I’m seeing business class tickets to London today for as low as $1,770 all in. This is an amazing discount off of normal business class pricing. This is amazing because you’ll earn a ton of miles and get to fly in business class for a fraction of the normal price. If you want to get in on this sale, make sure you purchase your ticket no later than today, July 4th, 2012.
Business class fares are running as low as $1,770 and coach class fares are running as low as $888 from select cities to London.

Even though MSP and SLC aren’t listed in the official fare sale. I’m seeing fares at $1,763 for MSP and $1,778 for SLC to LHR.
