Lufthansa has launched a summer fare sale that runs until April 8 and at first glance it looks like the savings range from 10-30% off of normal summer fares.
Some of the best deals involve Frankfurt. Flying to Frankfurt from NYC can happen for only $789, while Chicago, Washington DC or Denver to Frankfurt prices for only $989. Typically these are $1300-1500 fares during the summer.
Otherwise most East Coast departures to Europe range between $1100-1300 and fares from the midwest start at $1200 and work their way up to the mid $1500 range. Remember that these fares are upgradeable to Premium Economy using Lufthansa’s myOffer bid program.

Return travel must take place between July 4, 2016 and February 22, 2017.
