Great Deal to one of the worlds coolest cities – Tokyo!

If you’ve never been to Tokyo, you’re missing out on one of the coolest places on earth, and with the Summer Olympics in Tokyo only 517 days away, it’s about to get even more attention. From riding the Shinkansen to eating sushi that comes around to you on a conveyor, Tokyo is full of fun and exciting things to do!

The Shinkansen bullet train! One of my favorite things about Japan!

If you are ok with Premium Select seating for such long flights, this is the sale for you. Delta is out this week with a flash sale on roundtrip flights to Tokyo, Japan, and Seoul, S. Korea, and while the cash prices are pretty good, the real value is found when paying with SkyMiles.

Delta is celebrating adding Premium Select seating to more of their Asia routes by putting the cabin on sale. Here are the ways you can expect Premium Select to be an advantage over regular economy:

  • Wider, more comfortable seat with adjustable head, arm, leg and foot rests
  • Largest-in-class Delta Studio® entertainment screen and dedicated outlets
  • Fine dining with premium wine pairings, plus a refreshing TUMI amenity kit

As someone that has flown economy on the 14 hour flight from Chicago to Tokyo, those benefits of Premium Select sound pretty good to me. If this is starting to sound good to you, here are the details of this sale:

Final Thoughts:

There are a couple of nice cash deals on the list if you don’t happen to have enough Skymiles, but definitely burn the SkyMiles if you can. These types of opportunities to Asia don’t come around often. Be sure to book by February 25th.
