Summary

A typical award ticket between the 48 continuous United States and Africa used to cost 80,000 SkyMiles round-trip when award charts used to exist; so portions of this sale is fairly reasonable — if you can take advantage of the 64,000 minimum redemption of SkyMiles…

…but Delta Air Lines seldom offers sales between the United States and Africa; so if you cannot wait for that lower airfare any longer, this sale is worth some consideration.
