Business Class award availability in July appears to show even more days with low level Business Class availability.

Coach Class Availability
Coach Class award availability in June isn’t great. There are no days that show low level Coach Class availability but a bunch with high level availability.
Coach Class award availability in July isn’t much better. There is one day with low level Coach Class availability.
But Coach Class award availability in August is really good. There are multiple days with low level Coach Class availability.
The low award ticket in Coach Class will cost you only 60,000 round trip. If you book this award, don’t forget to add the free one-way to your award. And stop-overs and open jaws are allowed.
It’s great to see Delta adding the seasonal service back to Iceland. The 100,000 SkyMiles Business Class award at the low level is a lot of miles for such a short distance, but if you want to go to Iceland on points and miles, this is an option.
