Lufthansa has just launched a Fall Fare Sale valid for travel between the USA and a variety of European destinations.   The most attractive fares tend to be from New York where fares start in the mid $700 range for destinations such as Krakow, Istanbul and Warsaw.  Fares from the West Coast start as low as $989 (San Francisco to Copenhagen) and trend upwards into the $1100-$1200 range.   The fares are valid for travel between August 25 and October 26, which in my opinion is the best time to visit Europe.   Temperatures dip, the tourists have gone home and much better deals can be found as far as hotels and lodging are concerned.   The FARE SALE is only in place until July 11.


Terms and conditions apply and are as follows:

Tickets must be purchased by July 11, 2013.

You must depart between August 25 and October 26, 2013.
