Last month Delta did a Flash Sale for Delta One award seats to Europe for 110,000 miles R/T. Now, Delta award tickets to Latin America is offering travelers the opportunity to explore a new region.
Delta award tickets to Latin America Availability
I would suggest playing around with the flexible calendar to find the best award dates and plan your future vacation to Latin America to cities like Machu Picchu, Peru.
Below is a sample date from LAX to Santiago, Chile in main cabin.
Which card should you use to pay for your reservation?
Since this main cabin award tickets to Latin America for 50,000 round-trip is on Delta, the American Express Delta (Gold, Platinum, or Reserve) is an obvious choice due to the great perks for cardholders:
- priority boarding
- free checked bag
- the ability to earn MQMs with both the Platinum and the Reserve versions
Other card options would be the Barclay Arrival or Citi Prestige due to their ability to offset a portion of the fare with points or flight credits, respectively.
The Bald Thoughts
With the recent increase of Skyteam partner award charts across all regions, this is a perfect way to spend your Skymiles before another major devaluation. I predict these seats for this flash sale will go fast due to the recent Delta Meltdown compensation. Delta announced they compensated passengers up to 20,000 miles for the inconvenience. Lee and his son Timothy were stuck in Atlanta and had to spend the night in the Delta SkyClub Lounge. With a spike of miles in travelers accounts, this flash sale will be tempting for many.
Which South American city would you like to visit? Have you purchased award tickets during a Delta Flash Sale before? Where did you go?
