Had a chat with FC about redeeming miles with Delta and they said that since 1st Sept, taxes have increased but miles decreased to bring them more in line with VS charges (the increase is due to a "fuel surcharge"...<rolls eyes>. They quoted the following:

ATL-LHR Delta One = 47,500 + £112.60 tax / Main Cabin = 12,500 + £112.50 tax (standard season dates)

Not sure how many miles were needed before 1st Sep but the increase in tax from $5 to £112 is a bit disappointing. However, when you compare it to ATL-LHR on VS Upper = 47,500 miles and $501, it's a bargain!

Using miles on Delta for flights within the US/Canada is 12,500 each way in Y and 22,500 each way in First (not a bad use of miles in Y for East-West Coast flights).

I recently booked 3xreward flights in Delta One from Portland to LHR for 150k miles and £13.20 total in taxes. The min miles for the reward tickets was 45k but dates drove a slightly higher redemption rate of 50k ea.

So miles themselves havent moved much but taxes have increased substantially since the start of the month...though still less than ex LHR, which was £380-ish for a us east cost G ticket.
