Lufthansa is running a First Class Fare sale for travel to Europe during the Thanksgiving Holiday period in the USA.    Fares are attractive, starting as low as $5069 (Boston-Brussels).

The fare sale extends to a wide variety of European destinations too many to mention.   Aside from the great Boston-Brussels fare, other fares run in the mid to high $5000 range from the East Coast while fares from the West Coast are ranging in the $6000-$6200 range.

A great reason to visit Europe during this time of year is to experience the Christmas Markets that get underway in late November and run through the Christmas Holiday season.   I’ve been to several of them over the past few years and can recommend them highly.  There’s nothing like sipping on a warm mug of Spiced Wine  while browsing a market!

As far as the terms and conditions are concerned, the fare sale runs until September 29th.   Outbound travel must take place between November 22 and 28th, while return flights need to take place between November 27 and December 3.  Tickets must be purchased 60 days prior to departure.


Pay attention to who is operating your flight.   As is normal for ex-USA travel, your flights may be operated by Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian, Brussels, United or Air Canada.    Please be mindful that only Lufthansa and SWISS offer First Class flights within the Lufthansa Group.   Austrian, Brussels & Air Canada, while excellent, fly 2-cabin aircraft – Business & Economy.    And of course there is NO COMPARISON between LH and United when it comes to the First Class experience to Europe.

By flying with LH or SWISS  in First Class you’ll have access to the wonderful First Class Lounges in Munich, Frankfurt and Zurich as well as the First Class Terminal in Frankfurt.   You’ll also find the limited edition Christmas Ducks being offered in the lounges during this time of year in Munich and Frankfurt.
