SEA-LHR - Delta One (Business Class)

Sometimes the best way to book an award flight on Delta is through SkyTeam partner Air France/KLM. Inventory availability is different, and Air France/KLM have a variable award pricing that results in some odd (yet advantageous) award prices. Delta’s SkyMiles program was charging 280,000 points for the same itinerary. Gross.

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!
