    This is even cheaper than their $1,450 LHR business class fares. Looks like the same rules- 90 day advance purchase, fly by Aug 31, I fare. Tons of availability all summer long- great way to get to Europe basically for the price of coach. Remember I fares earn 50% MQMs and Skymiles.

    Delta has a 24 hour risk-free guarantee, so as long as you buy on Delta.com you can cancel with no penalty up until 11:59pm the next day


    Can route through a number of hubs, not just BOS/MIA. Screen shots and more details on my blog.

    Unless something has changed recently, DL I fare class (discount BE) should earn 150% MQMs, 100% credit plus an additional 50% for class of service. They also earn at least 150% spendable miles, more if the passenger is an elite with DL.

    Note also that the 24 hour risk free cancellation is normally 11:59 pm ATL time, regardless of your departure city, although some reservation call centers located outside of the Eastern time zone might give you some leeway on this.

    About $20 more to fly out of RDU too, and about $40-$50 cheaper than the regular seats for that time period.

    Boo MSP travelers. We don't get many exciting fares. Time to move?

    You do not need to purchase 90 days in advance... I bought one BOS-AMS for June 2 (67 days).

    No reason MSP travelers cant partake... you just need to separately book your positioning flight to the orginating city.

    Thanks OP for the heads up on this deal...

    I will probably buy another as I will not be working for a bit after June 1.

    You mean because the winter weather isn't enough of a reason to move? ;)

    Sorry if I was unclear- I meant you get an additional 50% bonus for I fares.

    Anyone still seeing these fares? I only find I fares from BOS, MCO, JAX, MIA and TPA for > $2k now. I have tried a variety of dates in June and July, but no luck ...... :)


    Is this deal now dead???
