There’s business class, and then there are business class suites. And few airlines offer the mix of luxury and privacy you can get in the skies flying in the Delta One suites.
Currently, Delta is flying these suites on a mix of brand-spanking-new Airbus A350s and refurbished Boeing 777s. But more are on the way.
Read our full review of flying Delta One Suites from Tokyo-Haneda (HND) to Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP).
Delta is going all out with these flashy new suites, along with its sterling premium economy seats that the airline calls Premium Select. The airline will install both on many of its Boeing 767s, as well as a new crop of Airbus A330-900neo coming onboard soon. So this list will only grow.
We’ll keep this page updated as best we can, but beware that airlines are constantly shifting planes to different routes, and Delta is no exception.
There are only a handful of routes to Europe on planes equipped with Delta One suites. But the airline’s plans to overhaul its older Boeing 767s with suites should change that.
Currently, you can fly in a Delta One suite between:
- Atlanta (ATL) to Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG) – starting March 28, 2020
- Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) to Amsterdam (AMS) – starting March 28, 2020
- Detroit (DTW) to Amsterdam (AMS)
- Los Angeles (LAX) to Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG)
- Atlanta (ATL) to Amsterdam (AMS) – starting May 1, 2020
How to Book: Thanks to its ever-changing and unpredictable award prices, it’s tough to pin down exactly how many SkyMiles you need to book one of these flights. After a recent hike, it’ll be 105,000 SkyMiles each way at the very least – but that could easily climb to 250,000 or more.
Luckily, there’s a great workaround that can save you some serious SkyMiles. You can use miles from partner airline Virgin Atlantic to book a Delta One suite. You may need to be flexible to make the dates work, but it’s worth the extra work. Virgin Atlantic charges just 50,000 miles for a one-way to Europe in these suites.
There are far more options to get to Asia in Delta One. And with flights clocking in at 12-plus hours, you’ll really treasure that lie-flat bed in your own cozy cocoon of privacy.
Currently, you can snag one of these suites between:
- Atlanta (ATL) to Seoul-Incheon (ICN)
- Atlanta (ATL) to Shanghai (PVG) – beginning Nov. 9, 2019
- Atlanta (ATL) to Tokyo-Narita (NRT)
- Detroit (DTW) to Beijing (PEK)
- Detroit (DTW) to Seoul-Incheon (ICN)
- Detroit (DTW) to Shanghai (PVG)
- Detroit (DTW) to Tokyo-Narita (NRT)
- Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) to Tokyo-Haneda (HND)
- Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) to Seoul-Incheon (ICN)
- Los Angeles (LAX) to Tokyo-Haneda (HND)
- Los Angeles (LAX) to Shanghai (PVG)
- Seattle (SEA) to Tokyo-Narita (NRT)
- Seattle (SEA) to Seoul-Incheon (ICN) – beginning Aug. 1, 2019
- Seattle (SEA) to Shanghai (PVG) – beginning July 1, 2019
And with the re-launch of Delta’s nonstop service to India, you can also fly from New York City-JFK (JFK) to Mumbai (BOM) in a Delta One Suite.
- New York City-JFK (JFK) to Mumbai (BOM) – beginning Dec. 22, 2019.
How to Book: We’re going back to the Virgin Atlantic well.
Again, the savings by booking through Virgin Atlantic are enormous – it’s just 60,000 miles to book any one of these flights. And it’s generally not too hard to find a date that works at that price.
The one exception is with flights to Seoul-Incheon (ICN), which are not currently bookable through the Virgin website.
Go figure: One of Delta’s longest flights gets the suite treatment.
Clocking in at nearly 15 hours, the flight from Los Angeles (LAX) to Sydney (SYD) is a beast. But beginning April 1, 2019, this route will have Delta One suites on board.
How to Book: I bet you can guess where we’re going with this.
Yep, it’s back to Virgin Atlantic. Using SkyMiles to fly this route will generally cost you 225,000 SkyMiles at the very least. But if you can find the right flights – which can be tough – the exact same flight is just 75,000 Virgin Atlantic miles.
The number of routes equipped with these Delta One suites seems to grow by the month. Check back to see where you can fly to live the suite life.
