STL/MSY/DFW to Madrid in Business Class- Delta – #FlightDeal – Mar 2014 – ~$2,000 R/T – #SkyTeam

Update: 10/21 8:16 PM CST

$2,029 Fare also available from New Orleans (MSY)

$2,077 from Dallas (DFW)

Europe is still quite chilly in early March but Spain is going to be about the mildest spot on the continent.

While the price isn’t earth shattering cheap, roughly $2,000 round-trip to Europe in business class is still a really good deal. The product isn’t exciting (Delta 767) but it’s still a comfy way to cross the Atlantic. A decent amount of dates available in February and March 2015.

Sample Departure Date: Tue, Mar 3, 2o14

Sample Return Date: Tue, Mar 10, 2014

Airline: Delta

CPM: 14.0 CPM  (Again, not anywhere near mileage run worthy but still a good business class fare)

Total Base Mileage Earned: 14,418 Base Miles if you bank to Alaska Mileage Plan, 10,145 if banked to Delta SkyMiles under Skymiles 2015

Routing: STL-ATL-MAD-ATL-STL
