Delta is practically notorious for charging a mountain of SkyMiles to book Delta One business class abroad: You're likely to see rates of 300,000 SkyMiles or more each way. Consider this an excellent exception.

Earlier this week, we sent Thrifty Traveler Premium members an award alert to book Delta One Suites to Tokyo-Haneda (HND) from nearly a dozen cities next year for as low as just 85,000 miles each way. Travelers with a co-branded Delta Skymiles American Express card in their wallets get the best rates thanks to the TakeOff 15 discount.

Our Thrifty Traveler Premium members got first dibs and snapped up some of this availability, but there are still plenty of flights bookable from January through early March 2024. Don't wait, as these cheap Delta One rates could disappear soon.

Technically, this is part of Delta's Cyber Monday Sale … but as usual, the deals we found are even better than what Delta advertised. There are also some significant savings flying Delta One over to Seoul (ICN) next year from dozens of cities, with one-way fares as low as 110,000 SkyMiles or so.

Using just 85,000 SkyMiles to book a lie-flat seat to Japan is as good as it gets with Delta these days. Sure, other airlines may charge fewer miles to fly business class across the Pacific. But this is the lowest price we've seen for travelers with SkyMiles in nearly four years!

Surprisingly, Delta is even cutting a deal to members who book one-way flights in business class. That's a rarity: With Delta SkyMiles flash sales, you almost always need to book roundtrip for savings. Not so here.

This deal is so good – and so rare – we sent Thrifty Traveler Premium members a text for this unicorn fare as well as an email alert! Book a one-way for as low as 85,000 SkyMiles or make it a roundtrip for just 170,000 SkyMiles. Either way, it's a fraction of what Delta typically charges.

This isn't just a one-off, either: You can book Delta business class seats over to Tokyo from several airports across the country at these discounted rates, including Delta hubs like Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP), Detroit (DTW), and Seattle (SEA) as well as even smaller airports like Rochester (RST). The list of deals to Seoul (ICN) is even longer. Keep reading for the full list of departure cities you can fly from!

No matter where you're going, you'll be flying the best of the best Delta business class seats across the Pacific. All of Delta's routes to Tokyo and Seoul are on either an Airbus A350-900 or an even newer Airbus A330-900neo, both equipped with Delta One suites for your long flight overseas.

Lie-flat bed? Check. Privacy doors you can close to block out the world? Check. Champagne when you board, great food you can pre-order online, and a high-definition seatback screen with plenty of movies to keep you entertained? Check, check, and check.

This is about as good as flying to Japan gets.

You'll find these ultra-low rates for Delta One to Japan from January through early March. But whether you head up north for some legendary skiing in Hokkaido or just eat your way around Tokyo, there's no bad time of year to explore Japan.

We're used to seeing the big Delta hubs like Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP), Atlanta (ATL), and Detroit (DTW) suffer from higher prices … but there's no Delta hub penalty here! Just check out how easy it is to find a business class flight from Minneapolis to Tokyo next year for just 85,000 SkyMiles.

Other nonstop and one-stop routes price out a bit higher, so it could be worth booking a positioning flight to Minneapolis or Detroit. But even at 110,000 SkyMiles or 127,500 SkyMiles each way, this is likely the lowest rate you'll find through Delta for a trip to Asia in business class from airports like Atlanta (ATL), Detroit (DTW), and other cities.

Bottom Line

Delta SkyMiles flash sales have mounted a serious comeback lately, and they don't get much better than this.

Just 85,000 SkyMiles for a Delta One Suite to Tokyo next year? Steep savings to Seoul, too? It's been years since we've seen business class award rates this low with Delta.

Our Thrifty Traveler Premium members got first dibs, but now it's your chance. Don't wait: Deals this good don't stick around for long.
