Saver awards in business class are wide open flying Delta to Israel for the end of 2021. Israel is likely to have nearly their entire population vaccinated soon, if you’re looking for a place you might bet on opening up to travel for later this year it’s a reasonable bet to make.
And using points you can cancel and redeposit – make plans without putting out large amounts of non-refundable cash. No change fees are one thing. I prefer not to hold airline scrip and award travel just makes sense in an uncertain world.
Each flight showing availability has between 2 and 8 or more business class award seats available (8 is the most shown even when there are more than 8 available).
Since these are Delta flights, you can spend Delta miles of course, but it’ll be over 100,000 of those. Air France KLM 72,000 miles each way, without fuel surcharges and Flying Blue is a transfer partner of major bank points programs (Chase, American Express, Citibank, and Capital One).
