After my Flight Review: Delta One Business Class LAX-JFK, I noticed that Delta had quietly removed the premium pricing they used to charge on Delta One Transcontinental Business Class awards.
With this change, it appears that they have now reduced the amount of their low-level awards to 45,000 SkyMiles each-way, though Delta doesn’t publish award charts anymore.
Checking several months yields some availability, and this does not appear to be an IT glitch. With the revenue ticket prices being lowered on these routes, it appears that Delta has lifted their premium pricing for award.
You’ll notice a few days in August available to redeem for Delta One Business Class on JFK-LAX for just 45,000 SkyMiles one-way. If you’re looking to redeem SkyMiles for Delta One, this is the cheapest you’ll find.

At just 45,000 SkyMiles, either card gives you more than enough miles to redeem for Delta One. If you were to pick up both cards, you’d be looking at 130,000 SkyMiles!
