Lufthansa once again is knocking down premium fares for travel to the USA. This time it is a fantastic deal that features LH, SWISS, Brussels, and Austrian Business Class fares to the USA for $1700.
The catch is that travel needs to originate in Warsaw, Budapest, or Prague but if you can pull that off, you’ll get a great deal!
Example fares include New York, Chicago, Washington DC and other East Coast destinations that can be reached for about $1700. West Coast destinations have largely been left out of the deal, however Seattle can be reached for only $2400 and LAX for about $2900, but those fares are available only on a few select Saturdays (per Google.com/filights).
The fare appears to cover travel all the way into September 2018, so there is plenty of opportunity to lock in travel dates. Just make sure you do it by tomorrow! 🙂
A six night stay is required to trigger these fares. The fares are also available on Star Alliance partners SAS, Air Canada, and United.
Finally, a promo I actually qualify for with upcoming travel….
Miles & More has announced a small promo that will award members up to 2,000 award miles for flights taken between August 1 and October 31, 2017.
If you have flights scheduled during this time frame, you’ll earn an extra 500 miles for 2 flights and 2,000 bonus miles if you have 4 flights during the promo period. Like I said, it’s not much, but it’s something. You can’t earn more miles if you have more than 4 segments scheduled during the promo. 4 flights are the maximum that are eligible for the bonus miles.
The credit can be earned on flights operated by Lufthansa, Austrian, Brussels, SWISS, Eurowings, Croatia and Luxair. Fare class doesn’t matter (award tickets do not qualify). Multiple segments within an itinerary count as individual flights (i.e. flying ORD to JNB via ZRH counts as 2 flights).
The only catch is that you have to register by August 17 in order to be eligible, and it appears to be a targeted offer being made by email. There’s no link that I can provide that would take you to the registration page, so check your email/spam folders for the offer.
