Lufthansa has launched a First Class fare sale that will save travelers 30-50% off of their typical prices for a First Class ticket between the USA and Europe. So if there is ever a time to treat yourself to Lufthansa’s outstanding First Class product (both on the ground and in the air), this may be it!
Based on fare prices, travel to London is the best value during this sale with most fares from the USA ranging from $4193.00 from the East Coast to approximately $5500.00 from the West Coast. Flights to London have a connection via Frankfurt. Other fares from the East Coast to most European destinations are in the $5900-$6300 range and $7000-$8000 from West Coast gateways.
Additionally, flights can be operated by United or Swiss and qualify for the fare promotion. In the terms and conditions, it also included Air Canada and Austrian, but they do not offer a specific First Class cabin as Lufthansa, United and Swiss do, so travel on those carriers will be in their Business Class cabins since their long-haul aircraft are set up in 2-cabin configurations. So be mindful of the operator of the flights as you are booking your ticket!
If you need any more convincing, take a look at my recent review on Lufthansa’s new First Class class seat aboard the new 747-8i that is also currently being introduced through out their long-haul fleet as well as a recent trip report from a flight on an aircraft with the older First Class cabin. For a look at the fantastic First Class product on the ground, please take a look at my trip reports covering Lufthansa’s stand alone First Class Terminal in Frankfurt as well as the First Class Lounge located in Concourse B inside Frankfurt’s Airport.
And don’t forget to get your Duck!
