UPDATE 2PM EST: Kayak.de seems to be working from many cities (with multi day search) that then sends you Seat24.de to purchase. I suggest using Google Chrome browser to convert to English for you to make it simpler to search & book!
Also be sure to look at reader comments for more tips on how to find your own deal!
UPDATE 10PM EST: SHOCKING still live and a few open dates in both 2014 and 2015. Can not understand why (most) my fellow bloggers are not YELLING about this one. Amazing value and points this year and next!
UPDATE 6AM EST 10NOV: The good news is there are still folks booking this deal and other routs to mid-east area. In fact, the December 3-8 ORD-NBO price has GONE DOWN! 🙂 The bad news is there are some reports of Wideroe canceling reservations. Just don’t book any non-refundable hotels etc until you know this WILL stick for you!
2PM 10NOV – DEAL NOW SEEMS DEAD
Our friends at Wideroe are able to book you for just over $200 a trip to Africa from NYC on Delta and Skyteam partners.
It is an amazing price. It seems you can only book this on Wideroe website and suggest using the multi-day search.
Dates are WIDE OPEN this year and next. This is a long trip in coach but what a deal. Do look from your home town as MANY other cities are close to this same price!
Some thoughts on the deal to consider:
Other things to consider are will you get full points this year or next. You should, but there is the chance this could end up as a consolidator fare but next year under Skymiles2015 that is not all that bad and could result in MORE points than this year. At this price it may be worth the gamble either way and I do think, but can not guarantee, you will get full points for2014 flights.
Let me know if you book and fly this – would love a reader trip report! – René
PS – Don’t forget I am giving away a $100 Delta e-Gift card this week
