Lufthansa Group Airlines has launched a group wide Business Class fare sale for travel to the USA from Zurich, Vienna, and Rome.
Fares are amazing. You can fly to the East Coast for only $1600. The same goes for most midwest destinations as well. Surprisingly, you can fly from Vienna or Rome to the West Coast for only $1400!!!
The fare is valid for travel on all LH Group airlines (yes, including Brussels), as well as on United and Air Canada. The fare seems to cover travel dates until year end. I did notice however there are a few pockets where the fares are valid for travel on Thursdays-Sundays, mostly on Vienna flights to the East Coast.
The fares book into deep discount ‘P’ class and require either a 6 night stay, or just a Saturday night stay, making this a very attractive deal. I’m not sure when the sale will end, it may be a very temporary 24 hour ‘Flash’ offer.
Swiss has launched an outstanding fare sale for travel originating in Luxembourg or Brussels that provides roundtrip First Class travel aboard SWISS to most of the destinations in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and South America.
The lowest fares are to the Middle East where fares range in the low €2000 euro range. Asia fares start €2500, while South America can be reached for only €3000. Fares to Johannesburg are attractive as well for only €3000.
The fare sale runs until June 22 and travel must take place between July 1, 2017 and January 15, 2018, giving you ample opportunity and inventory to plan your trip. A 3 day stay is required, other than that there are no other serious restrictions.

LH Group has launched an attractive Business Class fare sale for travel between Europe and the USA.
The best fares as usual are to the East Coast, with Boston, NYC, Washington DC and Philadelphia pricing at €1800. Southeast and Midwest destinations can be reached for about €2000 while the West Coast can be booked for €2600. Canada is also part of the fare sale with fares similar to those for the USA.
The fare sale is in place until June 7, 2017. Tickets must be purchased 14 days prior to departure, and there is a 6 night minimum stay.
Inventory is wide open for June / July / August travel.
SWISS has launched extremely attractive premium fares for travel originating from their Italian gateways to most of their global destinations.
One of the better deals is Hong Kong for only €3000 in First or in Business Class for a ridiculously low price of only €1400.
Other examples include Bangkok for €2500 in First / €1340 in Business, Sao Paulo for only €2900 in First / €1400 in Business, Delhi for €2500 in First / €1340 in Business.
Unfortunately the fare sale does not extend to North American destinations, but there are plenty of fantastic prices available to the rest of the world if you don’t mind originating your SWISS ticket in Italy. A minor inconvenience considering the impressive pricing for their premium cabins.
This offer obviously requires you to connect through Zurich, so you connecting flight from Italy would be a Business Class seat aboard a SWISS narrow body aircraft (A319/20).
The fares are available for booking until May 22, and valid travel windows extend all the way to February 28, 2018 so there is plenty of room to find a ticket!
A minimum stay of 5 nights is required to qualify for these fares.

SWISS has launched a fare sale from the US to their Spanish destinations including Madrid and Barcelona.
The best fare appears to be Boston – Barcelona for only $506. Otherwise ‘Barca’ and Madrid can be reached for between $580 and $630 from LX’s East Coast gateways.
From the Midwest and West Coast, fares range between the mid $600 and mid $800 range.
As far as Italian destinations are concerned, prices to Rome and Venice are about $40-$100 higher than the fares to Spain.
With SWISS’ poorly designed website, it’s nearly impossible to identify the travel windows and terms/conditions for the fares. With some trial and error, I see most of the best fares are available for late May / early June and September-October travel.
