Lufthansa, SWISS, and Austrian have posted a sensational Business Class fare sale for travel that originates from either Europe or North America!
The sale is scheduled to last until March 28 and covers travel between June 22 and August 11, 2018.
Some examples of the sale:
- Frankfurt – New York for $2064
- Prague – Washington DC for $2100
- Munich – Los Angeles for $2600
In fact, most Business Class fares to the USA, Canada, Latin America, Europe, and Mexico are ranging between $2000 and $3000, making this a fantastic opportunity for summer travel.
What’s especially nice about this fare sale is that it covers travel in both directions. Usually a fare sale is targeted towards departures from Europe OR North America. Though prices from North America are about $100-$300 more than prices for travel that starts in Europe.
The fares are also available for United and Air Canada operated flights, but why go there especially if United may kill your dog…..
Miles & More has announced that Lufthansa passengers can earn an additional 50% award mile bonus for flights booked between March 12 and May 31, 2018.
The offer is valid as long as travel has been booked on Lufthansa.com and that the flights takes place between March 12 and August 30, 2018. The flights must be operated by Lufthansa in order to qualify for the bonus miles.
The bonus will be based off of your fare class, so the award will be a factor of the fare class, and not actual miles flown.
You must provide your Miles & More number at the time of booking in order for you to qualify for the bonus miles. The bonus miles will be credited as late as 12 weeks after your qualifying flights. And of course, bonus miles do not count toward status qualification.
One small part of the fine print: Residents of Austria, Switzerland and the 13 people living in Lichtenstein are not eligible for the promotion.
