Refunds are not permitted on tickets except in accordance with the cancellation policy of Delta Air Lines.

Fees may apply for downgrades or reissued tickets and itinerary changes.

Changes to award tickets must occur at least 72 hours prior to the departure time of the flight being changed. Award tickets booked within 72 hours of departure are not refundable and cannot be redeposited or reissued unless prohibited by local law or within the risk-free cancellation period. No changes will be permitted to the originating flight of award tickets booked within 72 hours; however, changes to the return are permitted if the return flight is not within 72 hours and the change is made at least 72 hours prior to flight departure. Fees apply for any changes; and taxes and fees will apply. Voluntary changes to award tickets after this promotion has ended may result in an increase in the cost of SkyMiles.

Promotional redemption amounts are subject to availability and seats available at promotional award prices are limited.

This offer cannot be transferred.

Many other terms and conditions — including the costs of taxes and baggage charges — apply to each offer. Be sure to review them prior to redeeming your SkyMiles for your flight reservations.

Summary

Do not confuse this sale with the monthly SkyMiles sale, which is expected to be available sometime next week.

You can compare the redemption rates of this sale to when award charts used to exist. This sale is excellent — this is the lowest redemption rate of SkyMiles I have seen yet between Australia and the United States — and award seat availability is not scarce for many of these offers at the time this article was written.

    But who wants sit in coach for 14+ hours. I know people do it al the time but man… what a slog that would be.

      I used to work for DL so when I jumped onto a B777 in LAX back in 2012 for the flight to SYD I asked for a courtesy upgrade to biz class. I was already booked in steerage but lived the motto of nothing ventured…. The FA asked the captain and they OKd it. So I was able to right “up front” for the 16+ hour flight. Fantastic lie-flat seats. I was in the best shape of my adult life (I was 47 at the time and was drinking nothing but water…zero alcohol in my life) and when I landed in SYD two days later (you lose a day) I was absolutely wiped. It took me 4 days to recover from the flight. Fortunately, I was there for two weeks so I recovered well before my return (I purchased the economy upgrade on the flight from BNE to LAX because I was on Virgin and had no option to ride up front). Having traveled to Europe many times in biz on Delta as an employee and non-rev, no flight I ever took compared to that flight to SYD. If ever a flight called for the upgrade to business, it’s a flight like this. Do anything you can to ride up front or at least buy the extra leg room. You’re body (and mind) will thank you later.
