Delta Adds A350 Service from Detroit to Frankfurt for Limited Time
Per Routesonline, Delta has updated their route schedule to include A350-900 service from Detroit (DTW) to Frankfurt, Germany (FRA) starting on January 12th, 2019 through January 17th, 2019. This route will temporarily be replacing a Boeing 767 aircraft.
You can currently book this flight for only 48,000 SkyMiles round-trip in economy, 90,000 roundtrip in the new Premium Select product, and 180,000 SkyMiles in the new Delta One Suite (limited availability at this price point). This is a great opportunity to try out any of these new products. I’d book ASAP as the award pricing will increase as the news spreads. Keep in mind that only the outbound leg of these round-trip fares will be on the new Airbus A350 aircraft.
Thrifty Tip #1: Not familiar with the new Delta One suite onboard the new Airbus A350-900? See our post on the Delta One A350 Suite in 14 Photos.
Thrifty Tip #2: Need to bolster your SkyMiles Account balance? Check out the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card. Learn more about this card and other travel rewards credit cards here.
If you are in Detroit or can position there for relatively cheap, this is a great opportunity to try out the newest aircraft in Delta’s fleet and arguably one of the best business class products in the world. Don’t wait on this as I am sure the award space will dry up quickly.
