DL NON-STOP Z Class: ATL to SCL (A350-900) $2088

https://www.google.com/travel/flight...__8BQAFIA5gBAQ

Valid only on Tuesday departures and some return weeks are Tuesday and some are Wednesday. August and September. Can't beat the price for Delta out of ATL to SCL BUT there is a caveat:


These are NOT the A350 suites you know and love.

These are A350 aircraft purchased from LATAM and they have a 2x2x2 config in Biz class ..... yup. And no privacy, really, either. Tons of leg room (similar to Prestige class on Korean Airlines) but no privacy. :-(

You can check out videos of LATAM business class A350-900 to get an idea. From how I understand it, Delta will NOT be adding new Delta seats but keeping the red LATAM seats for the time being. Eventually the aircraft will be converted to typical A350 Delta config of 1 x 2 x 1. FYI

This is still a very good price and a decent product, considering this route consistently ran at ~$10 000 on their ancient B767 with very narrow seats.

It's a good price, but I hope DL isn't selling it as D1, which is supposed to have 100% direct aisle access on wide bodies.

What are the current entry rules for SCL?

Sold as DeltaOne on their site...



Just a heads up, looks like you can book this as LATAM codeshares which would give you more MQDs and MQMs and a baggage allowance of 3 bags @ 23 Kilos each (it seems per LATAM.com) under codeshares ATL-SCL would earn 14085 MQMs 2817 MQDs 1.35 MQD Ratio

From Atlanta, it is an excellent price.

Yeah, the 767 300 seat width (and pitch!) is just not very good. But the width is really taxing. Must not be more than 19". Feels like 18.5"

They ARE selling as Delta ONe. You can check out their website on the dates in link. All 2x2x2. There are 6 jets they bought from LATAM that are like this. I think almost all will be used for S.A. travel.

Delta says the seats are 20.5" (767-300)

ATL-EZE is going for $2475 nonstop on the Boeing 767s still seems like a deal ex-ATL.

Yes, quite a decent price for a non-stop. SCL has been exorbitant, EZE GIG GRU have been about half of SCL but still very high, LIM has always been veeery cheap, around $850-$1200 r/t for DL ONE.

They are more liberal on travel days (using Google Flights search is misleading as calendar only shows fixed periods). The fare basis code is ZNXQ7NDQ and travel is valid for following days of week depending on direction --
FROM ATL - PERMITTED TUE THROUGH THU FROM THE GATEWAY. TO ATL - PERMITTED MON THROUGH WED FROM THE GATEWAY.
There is a 7-day min stay requirement, so you won't be able to do shorter turns on these fares (like over a weekend).
There is also a 50-day advance purchase requirement (there's some availability starting in July as long as you meet 50-day advance requirement).
The fare rules can be found at "Fare Rules" link when you bring up itin on delta.com. ITA Matrix also shows fare rules if you use that for a fare search.

For Amex Platinum card holders be sure to check your current offers for a $300 off $1000 select Airlines Internarional premium economy or greater flights when you book via their portal. Delta is one of the select airlines:

Get a one-time $300 statement credit by using your enrolled eligible Card to spend a minimum of $1,000 in one or more purchases on International Airline Program flights booked online at americanexpress.com/us/AmexTravelIAP or by calling the number on the back of your Card

LIM has gone up considerably since COVID. Pre-COVID from Atlanta you could find for $1200-$1500. Now the cheapest is $1750 and usually in $2000_ range.

Purchasing via LATAM is not worth the additional MQDS. LATAM is so awful that many banks just assume that chargebacks are valid w/o waiting for reply. If you need to change ticket, Goodluck! Their agents don't know basics, won't necessarily follow fare rules for rebooking, etc...

Note their service in air is great.

This was Delta metal/LATAM codeshare, so assuming things would be OK-ish on dates, etc. Just dealing with the crediting of the flights... similar to a booking of Virgin Atlantic codeshares on a Delta Premium Select flight...
