JFK-LIR - Delta Main Cabin

Thanksgiving is a pain to travel around, especially to warm destinations like Costa Rica. Tickets are expensive, mileage rates can be outrageous and schedules are not as frequent as during the summer. That said, we were able to get this to work out. Considering the retail rate of the same ticket was $900+, 63,000 miles was a good enough deal.

Key Details:

Number of Travelers: 2

Point Currency: Delta SkyMiles

Dates: Thanksgiving 2019

Points Needed: 126,000 (63,000 per person)

Feel Good Value of Ticket: $994

What’s a “Feel Good Value”? Feel good value is the retail value of the flights booked (as searched on Google flights at the time of booking in the class of service). Why does it feel good? Cause its crazy expensive! We’d never let you pay this amount for a ticket - but that is why points are AMAZING!
