SkyTeam Business Class to Miami, San Francisco & Other US Cities for €1,197 from Spain

KLM 777 Business Class

The SkyTeam members KLM, Air France, and Delta are currently offering many cheap business class connections from Spain to various US cities, such as San Francisco or Miami. There’s a high variety of possible destinations. KLM and Air France offer high availability between January and March, as well as from late August onward. Delta’s flights are available from January through May.

Sadly, many destinations are only offered by Delta. This comes with a downside: Delta will fly you from Spain to New York, and then you’ll spend the rest of the trip in their domestic first class – a much inferior seat to those that are installed on transatlantic flights. Therefore, our focus in this deal is on the three cities that are served by KLM and Air France, as well as Delta’s non-stop flights to New York:

Our calendar displays all available dates for flights from Madrid to Miami, Chicago, New York, and San Francisco. First select the city that you wish to fly to, then the dates, and then your preferred point of departure in Spain. If you’re flying to New York, book the flights on Delta’s website, otherwise on KLM’s.

While it is a bit cheaper to fly with Delta via New York, as stated before, we recommend flying via Amsterdam or Paris with KLM or Air France. That way, you get to spend almost the entire trip in a lie-flat business class seat. However, if you want to fly to e.g. New York, Washington, Boston…, you’ll have to fly Delta.

Search & Book

The fare rules state that this deal will remain valid until November 29, 2022. Your trip also has to be at least 6 days long, or include a Sunday.

You can find available dates easily using Google Flights. You should then book the flights on KLM’s website, except if you’re flying to New York, as those tickets are only sold on Delta’s website.

As always, don’t forget to apply for your ESTA visa (for US$14 (~€13)) for your stay in the USA.

Information & Tips for USA

The USA offers many sights, natural wonders and cultural significance. Thanks to numerous airlines offering flights across the Atlantic, it is always pretty inexpensive to get there. Alternatively, you can also cross the Atlantic by boat.

Immigration, ESTA & Visa Requirements

The USA has one of the strictest entry regulations in the world. Most EU citizens, among others, are lucky to be able to participate in the so-called Visa Waiver Program. If you get an electronic entry permit (ESTA)  for approximately €20, you don’t need a visa for entry.

The Best Time to Visit

Due to its sheer size, the perfect time to visit the USA varies greatly from region to region. In winter, Florida is very popular due to the mild temperatures. In the summer the West and East Coasts are flooded by tourists which drives up the prices for hotels and flights and during the Indian Summer in late autumn New England is a very popular destination. The hurricane season between July and September can be dangerous in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. Florida and the southern states are regularly struck by these tropical storms. Blizzards occur from the East Coast to the Midwest during the winter months and regularly put air traffic and public life on hold.

Currency

The US dollar is widely used throughout the world and accepted as a currency in most tourist hotspots worldwide. That being said, carrying cash isn’t necessary in the US, all you need is a credit card! These are very common in the USA and are accepted pretty much everywhere without any issues. If you already have a credit card in your wallet, you should make sure that it does not charge a foreign currency fee if possible. Carrying a few dollars in cash doesn’t hurt though. You might need cash e.g. for the bus ticket if you want to buy it directly from the driver. Most of the time you even have to give exact change.
