LUFTHANSA GROUP BUSINESS CLASS SALE:  $1400 To NYC From BERLIN

LUFTHANSA GROUP BUSINESS CLASS SALE: $1400 To NYC From BERLIN

Between now and April 30, you can book roundtrip travel in Business Class aboard Lufthansa / SWISS / Austrian / Brussels to the USA for only $1400 (Roundtrip).   The minor catch is that you have to begin your travels from Berlin.  But for a $1400 Business Class ticket, that may be a very minor thing to worry about.

The fare sale covers travel between May 26 and September 4, 2017 and only requires a Saturday night stay.    You must purchase your tickets 14 days ahead of your planned departure.   This pricing is also available on flight operated by United and Air Canada, so you can get quite creative in how you route your travel from Berlin.

This special fare was published on the SkyTravelAgent.de website.   Sky Travel specializes in finding and booking LH Group deals and promos that may not normally be published by the airlines.   I’ve used them a few times in the past when I needed to build creative routings for mileage runs, or to get the best possible price for premium cabin tickets.    If you’re looking to build a fun and creative itinerary, reach out to them and see what they can do for you.   If you can’t find this fare deal on the airline websites, contact Sky Travel directly.

But Hurry, you only have 3 days to get this deal!

 

LUFTHANSA Christmas Market Fares:  Chicago To Munich Only $525…Frankfurt $535

LUFTHANSA Christmas Market Fares: Chicago To Munich Only $525…Frankfurt $535

Lufthansa has published what are perhaps the lowest fares I’ve ever seen between Chicago and Frankfurt or Munich.    The economy fares coincide with the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend and run into mid-December.   This lines up PERFECTLY with the opening of the Holiday Market season throughout Germany and the rest of Europe.

The best fare that I could find was a $525 deal between Chicago and Munich.   Frankfurt was next at only $535.   The rest of Germany and Europe were are priced at their typical $800-1200 range but with some creative booking, you can book separate tickets to take you deeper into Europe for far less.   Valid travel dates for this deal are between November 22 and December 15.

The catch with these fares is that a 7 day stay is required but there is no weekend travel blackout for the deals.  In other words the fares are not higher if your flights take place Thursday through Sunday.   There’s no end date to this fare sale.  It’s one of those ‘while supplies lasts’ kind of offers.

The fares are valid for travel on Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian, Air Canada, and United so you have plenty of flexibility as far as carriers are concerned.   As long as your travel originates in Chicago you can fly on any of these carriers and benefit from this low fare.
