Since the re-opening of the world after the Covid-19 pandemic, many airfares from Australia have increased significantly. While the prices to many destinations have started to come down since their peak, Business Class travel to the USA is still much higher than in 2019.
Thankfully, the Airfare Geeks have a pretty well stocked arsenal of options to reduce the cost of Business Class tickets to America! One of the best ways to achieve savings is by using a Delta Airlines airfare to South America via the USA.
Not only are these fares exceptionally good value, they allow truly incredible stopover possibilities within the Americas. While most airfares’ rules include a routing paragraph that lays out the specific transit and stopover points permitted on the way to and from your destination, some fares such as these offered by Delta, are instead based on maximum permitted mileage. What this means is that as long as you stay within the mileage limit and abide by the rest of the rules in the airfare, you can go wherever you like!
As an example, if Delta had based these fares on a routing paragraph, it might allow stopovers in Los Angeles, Atlanta and possibly some other Delta hubs such as New York or Salt Lake City. With a maximum permitted mileage fare though, you can add stopovers in places like New Orleans, Nashville, Aspen, Jackson Hole or even Toronto or Cancun! The trick is that you must also visit a South American destination, which then becomes the turnaround point for the airfare. The lowest priced South American destinations are Peru and Colombia but at a higher fare, you can visit southern South America, including destinations in Brazil, Argentina or Chile.
Below are some example itineraries that can be constructed using these airfares, with prices based on the lowest Business Class fare level:
Sydney to Las Vegas to Lima to Nashville to Austin to Sydney – from $7881.00 including taxes
Melbourne to San Diego to New York to Bogota to Miami to Melbourne – from $7942.00 including taxes
Sydney to Orlando to Sao Paulo to Cancun to Vancouver to Sydney – from $8921.00 including taxes
Compared to the generally very high cost of a return Business Class ticket to the USA, these airfares are truly amazing!
On top of the incredible value on offer, Delta Business Class is a wonderful place to spend time! The Delta One Suites onboard their a350-900 aircraft that service the Sydney to Los Angeles route, takes luxury travel to the next level. These private, enclosed suites offer travelers unparalleled comfort and privacy. Each suite features a fully flat bed with direct aisle access, a large entertainment screen, chef-curated menus and premium wines.
On top of that, Delta is set to open two new flagship lounges in 2024 in Los Angeles LAX and New York JFK. While the finer details are still under wraps, it’s a safe bet that these lounges will be exceptional, taking aim at the very high bar that has been set in North America in recent years by United with their Polaris lounges and Air Canada’s Signature Suites.
