Available Dates in October / November
It appears that there are some weaknesses on several international routes, as evidenced by recent earnings statements by the Big 3 U.S. domestic airlines. As a result, passengers can take advantage of sale prices that we are seeing sporadically. American has been very aggressive with Asia routings and now we have found a great fare to Europe for those of you considering a Fall trip; this time to Dublin, Ireland.
Although this is a great vacation fare to Europe it may not technically qualify as a Mileage Run (priced at 5.6 cents per mile) but still is a low airfare (for Delta) to Dublin that is NOT an error fare; it is just priced that way by Delta Air Lines. Delta has been targeting United Airlines’ hub airports, so Denver is a great value for as low as $538 round-trip in September and October.
I personally did Dublin last year when a similar Delta fare deal was offered and had a wonderful time and enjoyed great weather!
For a fare this low, you must stay a week, or longer. There are a lot of dates open and we have just shown you one here in our example. But taking our booking links you can search for alternative dates.
A great tip for this fare would be to use FlexPerks and book the trip for only 30,000 points! Now that would be a sweet deal!
Also, this is a ‘Pay With Miles’ eligible fare for those of you who hold a Delta/American Express co-branded card, so you can ‘buy down’ the fare with your SkyMiles and still earn full MQM’s! Another myth busted for those who still think you will lose all MQM’s if you use “Pay With Miles.” You will still get the MQM’s, but you are reducing your redeemable miles as they are tied to the base fare PAID.
Anyway here are the numbers:
MQM’s: 9,636 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQM’s)
Cost: 5.6 Cents Per Mile (CPM)

Another tip: For our Alaska Airlines readers, you could credit this to your Mileage Plan account and earn 4,818 redeemable miles and 9,636 Elite Qualifying Miles to that program. Thank you for visiting and following us, hopefully throughout 2016 here at Renes Points and Elite Mileage Runs
I also suggest that you take the time to read this article I wrote on Mobile Passport and load it onto your mobile device before taking this trip and see how great it works in the JFK Airport, which was just added in April! Best Wishes and Happy Travels. Enjoy your travels! – John @laptoptravel
