Unexpected Price Increase for Delta Business Class Award Flights to Europe

Via One Mile at a Time, the Delta Business Class award price to Europe has increased unexpectedly for all flights departing January 1, 2017, and after.

Although Delta stopped publishing an award chart, one-way Business Class award flights to Europe have been available for as low as 62,500 Delta miles.  Now, the cheapest one-way Business Class award flights in 2017 cost 70,000 Delta miles.

It’s disappointing Delta didn’t give folks the chance to book award flights before increasing the price.
