[FARE GONE] Premium Economy – Delta / Virgin Atlantic – $656: New York / Washington D.C. – London, England. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

Delta and Virgin Atlantic is putting Premium Economy seats on sale. Premium Economy is 38″ legroom (6 – 7″ more than economy) and better recline. This is the about the regular sale prices for ECONOMY. So this is a really good deal.

These flights are operated by Virgin Atlantic. It is actually more rewarding for Delta fliers to book the Virgin Atlantic coded flights. If you buy the Virgin Atlantic coded flights, you would earn 150% Elite Qualifying Miles (or 10,320 EQM) or 125% Redeemable Miles (or 8,600 RDM) and $1,720 Elite Qualifying Dollars.
