Delta to Greece question

    Hi!

    I am looking to book a nonstop Delta flight from JFK to ATH next July or August. Flights are not available that far out yet, so I figured I would try to figure out what to do so I am ready to book as soon as they are available. I would like to book a business or first class ticket. I have Chase Ultimate Rewards and Amex Membership rewards. I know I can transfer my points to Virgin Atlantic or Korean because they are partners with Delta. My question is- I cannot seem to find the nonstop Delta flight on these partners. They only show availability for the Delta flights with layovers. Does Delta give partners access to all of their flights or only certain ones? Any advice on how to book this one Delta flight using points from another airline?

    Thanks,
    Laura

    Korean Air will require you to book round trip.

    Delta isnt that great about releasing award space at "saver" levels on their own planes, which means partners dont get access. You're doing pretty good - just keep checking.
