SFO-BCN - Delta One (Business Class)

This month, SkyTeam carriers were offering sub $500 dollar round trip airfare between San Francisco and much of Europe. This was a personal trip, and we had not been to Barcelona yet! Sounded like a good time to book a 10-day trip.

While we took advantage of a cheap economy fare, we were able to use the option to pay-with-miles, then apply a global upgrade certificate!

Key Details:

Number of Travelers: 2

Point Currency: Delta SkyMiles

Dates: May 2019

Points Needed: 100,000 (50,000 per person) + 2 Global Upgrade Certificates

Feel Good Value of Ticket: $4,937

Real Value: ~$3,200

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!
