Our Verdict

I’m a bit confused by this sale as when I did a search using the Travelisfree Delta calculator, it showed the same base price as what Delta are showing as a sale. Maybe if Delta didn’t suck and actually had an award chart, it would be easier to determine if this sale actually has any value or not. Keep in mind that the flights they have listed are just a sample and you can see more by using the regular search engine.

Booked a flight from SFO-dtw yesterday for 11,000 miles. 25,000 today. Other flights look significantly more expensive. Is delta trying to pull something

I’m assuming this is only for flights on deltas own planes?
