Your $50 credit is good on flights flown to 13 select cities in Europe through April 12, 2011.

There is a redemption number and code but using it could make this deal $50 better!
People have had difficulty getting the voucher to work for this, but let me know if you can. Taking $50 off would be sweet.

Wonder if it's stackable with the $50 off Europe coupon.

On Delta's site it looks like availability on the weekends in early April. Example: Depart 4/7, 4/8, or 4/9 and return 4/10, 4/11, 4/12. $424.50

Its good this weekend too. Last date of travel looks like April 12, which also happened to be the last date for the last round of ultra cheap $150 TATL fares.

Same fare out of EWR, which allows ATL connections.

...but according to Delta's site, using the certificate invalidates mileage accrual.

Definitely a good deal, nice find

$530 LAX-DTW-LHR-ATL-LAX. Lots of options for weekend travel and possibly same day turns.

I posted screen shots on my blog if anyone is interested.

Remember, Delta has a 24+ hour cancellation policy, so book now and think about it later I'd be all over this if I wasn't already booked on these weekends doing $150 CPH and ARN runs!

Not true. The certificate specifically states that you can earn miles. However, I agree that it is confusing that Delta.com incorrectly states that miles won't be earned when you use the voucher. It says the same thing for bump/VDB vouchers and you absolutely earn miles when using those. Its simply a misprint that Delta refuses to fix.

If you book a mileage earning fare class (which this is) and use the voucher that says you will get miles, I highly doubt they will void out mileage for the trip.

This is still showing up in searches but seems to be gone, no?

V fares on KLM earn 100% with Alaska Airlines, I think.

Had some leftover vouchers, just booked for April 1-3 for $333. I have a friend in London I could visit.

And I can already see that KLM is not recognizing me as ST Elite Plus. Lovely.
