One of best regions of the world to visit is Europe with its cultural cities, varying geography, and endless activities. With Delta being a member of SkyTeam as well as a major stakeholder in Virgin Atlantic, SkyMiles can be a fantastic way to visit such a wonderful continent.

While Delta doesn’t publish an award chart, all partner business class awards will price at the 85K SkyMiles + taxes/fees each way. However, for awards on Delta flights, the amount fluctuates depending on numerous factors with the lowest being 70K for Delta One, 54K for Comfort Select, and 30K for Main Cabin + taxes/fees one way.

Fly Virgin Atlantic Upper Class – With the Virgin-standard onboard bar, top-notch cabin service, lie-flat seats, and access to the Revivals Lounge on arrival and the Clubhouse on departure from London (LHR), this is the without question one of the top ways to redeem Delta SkyMiles.

Fly Air France Business Class – Having consistently been voted one of the best overall business class offerings, its worth spending the 170,000 SkyMiles to get proper Champagne and French wines as well as menus designed by renowned French chefs. Air France has a new business class seat with 6 feet 5 inches of length in a reverse herringbone layout that provides comfort for all stages of a transatlantic flight.

Fly Delta Premium Select on the A350 – In late 2017 Delta begin service of their Flagship A350-900 with three cabins; Delta One Suites, Premium Select, and Main Cabin. Currently almost all routes are from the US to Asia with the exception of Detroit (DTW) to Amsterdam (AMS), which began in early 2018.

Delta Premium Select is a true premium economy product with 38 inches of pitch, retractable footrest, and larger armrest than an economy seat. Additionally, passengers are treated to a pre-departure beverage and premium meal service is on Delta’s new Alessi tableware.

Take advantage of Flash Sales – Delta has started doing frequent award “flash sales” for Delta One and Main Cabin flights. These are a terrific opportunity to score an award trip, with recently offers (within the past 6 months) including: 98K SkyMiles + taxes/fees for business class round trip from the US to select European cities and 48K SkyMiles + taxes/fees for Main Cabin from the US to London.

With a great route network, strong European airline partners in the SkyTeam alliance, and no fuel surcharges, redeeming Delta SkyMiles for an award trip to Europe is a great idea. If you have Platinum or Diamond Medallion Status with Delta, you are automatically eligible for Comfort+ seats award tickets for travel on Delta 777, 767, A330, and 757 international flights.

  1. A “good” use of Skymiles is hard to determine considering Skymiles are such trash. I do have to agree with the above IF you were to use your Skymiles going to Europe, Air France new Biz or Virgin Atlantic is the best. But for a 6-7 hour flight, Id rather go coach and save 100,000 miles!

    Why anyone flies DL? I don’t get it. Onboard catering is very weak domestic both BOB and First. Seats in first are ridiculously uncomfortable and tight. Service is arrogant and not better than the others as some perceive and of course…. Skymiles + Skyteam = SkyTrash
