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As is typical with SWISS, they do not publish any of the terms or conditions of the fares in any obvious place, so it’s hard to tell how long the fares will be available and what other conditions may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 and Cathay Pacific have announced a new codesharing agreement that will make it easier for Lufthansa Group passengers to travel to Australia and for Cathay passengers to reach 14 new European destinations.
The deal takes effect on April 26 and covers Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian Airlines.
For LH Group passengers, this means they will be able to book travel on a single ticket issued by Lufthansa, Swiss, and Austrian that will include flights operated by Cathay Pacific. The codeshare specifically includes being able to book travel to Sydney, Auckland, Melbourne, and Cairns.
Traveling to these destinations will now be possible with LH Group flights to Hong Kong, then connecting to Cathay Pacific flights the the aforementioned destinations.
UPDATE: Since publishing this post, Lufthansa has now cancelled flights to and from Philadelphia on March 14, 2017.
