Swiss has extended their current promotion for First Class travel to most of Asia, Africa, South America, and the Middle East. The promo basically a 2-for-1 with fares ranging between €2200 and €3000 ( £1900 and £2600). Perhaps the best deal is the €2400 fare to Shanghai or the €2900 fare to Sao Paolo.
The sale has been extended and now ends on 12 July 2017. Valid travel dates for this deal extend all the way out to 31 March 2018 so there is plenty of availability for the deal.
So, as long as you can originate your travel from the UK, you can take advantage of this decent offer. Keep in mind you flights from the UK to Zurich will be in Business Class and can include flights operated by Lufthansa or Austrian that ultimately get you to ZRH.
If you play your cards right, you can book your UK flight to Frankfurt via Lufthansa, visit the First Class Terminal, and then fly to Zurich where you can enjoy the SWISS First Class Lounge before your First Class flight!

Lufthansa has launched a very attractive First Class fare sale for travel between Germany and the USA. How attractive? How about First Class fares for the price of Business Class?
The absolute cheapest prices are to the East Coast, where Philadelphia, NYC, and Boston can be reached for only €3019. Most of the Midwest can be reached for only €3300 while the West Coast gets a bit more pricier at €5000.
The nice part of the fare sale is that the prices are valid for travel on Lufthansa or SWISS, however your travel needs to originate in Germany. You can also find these fares for travel on United flights from Germany as well.
The fare sale is in place until May 29 and is valid for travel between June 30 and September 10, 2017.
Take advantage of these great prices and enjoy wonderful perks such as the First Class Terminal in Frankfurt or SWISS’ amazing First Class Lounge in Zurich!
What it’s like to have a SWISS First Class cabin all to myself
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.

A Visit To The SWISS First Class Lounge in Zurich

After removing First Class from flights between Munich and Denver on December 2, 2016, Lufthansa is set to bring back their best cabin to the Rocky Mountain destination.
Beginning on May 1, Lufthansa brings back the A346 on the route which allows for First to be back on the timetable. Lufthansa currently flies the A333 on the route which does not offer First Class. Expect this to be in place through at least the Summer timetable.
It would be no surprise if the A350 begins to serve Denver later this year which would once again eliminate First Class since the A350 is not equipped with the ‘F’ cabin.
This change has no impact on the 744 service between Frankfurt and Denver.
