I just flew round trip in Delta ONE from ORD to FRA via JFK using only 172,000 Delta SkyMiles. This flight would have been over $10k if paid for in cash:
The flat bed was nice for the 8 hour flight, which included all the meals and drinks, as well as a nice Tumi Amenity kit. I was able to get six cents per point!
Full review to come later on MLA Travel Club. Now I am ready to experience one level up on the Delta ONE Suite only from DET to AMS on the brand new A350:
This service is a level above with a closing door and walls!
Limited dates in October that have one way non stop segments for 105k Skymiles:
If you have 3 slots of your 5 open for AmEx then it’s a good move. At the one year mark you would end up with two companion passes and you can upgrade the gold to another Reserve.
