SWISS has launched their Business Class fare sale between the USA and Europe that covers travel between May and August.
Most fares from the East Coast begin in the upper $2000 range and work their way up into the low $3000 area. Fares from the West Coast range between $3500 and the low $4000 area.
As is typical with SWISS, they do not publish any of the terms or conditions of the fares in any obvious place, so it’s hard to tell how long the fares will be available and what other conditions may exist.
Your best bet is to use something like ITA Matrix or Google Flights to see their fares illustrated in months vs. just days if you search via SWISS.com. What I did see was the fact that the best fares were available when traveling on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday.
Lufthansa Business Class fares start from $2500 for travel between the USA and Europe this Spring and into the early Summer.
The best fares are from the East Coast where you’ll find New York to Dusseldorf or Philly to Frankfurt for only $2500. Most other East Coast fares range between $2700 to $3000.
From the West Coast, you can fly between San Francisco and London for only $3100, making it perhaps the best deal as far as ‘cents per miles’ are concerned. Other West Coast fares range between $3300 and $4000.
From the Mid West, you’ll find the best deals out of Detroit, where you can find fares to most of Europe in the high $2000 / low $3000 range.
Departures need to take place between April 25 and June 30, 2017 while return travel must be completed by June 30, 2018. Tickets need to be purchased 10 days prior to departure.
The fare sale runs through March 30.
Maybe not as catchy as stopping to smell the roses, but Lufthansa has put Amsterdam (and the rest of Europe) on sale for this Spring.
The lowest fare to Amsterdam that I could find is a very attractive $480 from Denver. From most East Coast gateways to Amsterdam is still attractive in the low $600 range.
Aside from AMS, Boston (Aboard the A350!!) to Madrid or Barcelona can be booked for only $469. San Jose to Copenhagen is priced in the mid $600 range.
In fact, most European destinations can be booked for fares ranging between $600-$900 during this promotion.
The sale runs through March 15, 2017. Departing flights must take place between April 7 and April 30, while return travel must happen by October 30, 2017. You must purchase your tickets at least 7 days ahead of your departure.
