If you’re willing to fly basic economy – giving up seat selection and some other perks – you can get some of these deals for even fewer SkyMiles. Delta has started to expand basic economy to more and more award flights nationwide, though it’s still not available on every route. And while that’s generally bad news, it could save you some SkyMiles if that’s worth it to you.
