Lufthansa Group has launched an incredibly attractive BUSINESS CLASS Fare Sale to the USA from Germany with fares starting as low as €1339 ROUNDTRIP! The fares are not expected to stay at these levels for more than a few days (if that!) so you might want to take advantage of them sooner than later.
The fare sale covers flights operated by LUFTHANSA, SWISS, AUSTRIAN, BRUSSELS, United, and Air Canada.
The travel windows seem to be fairly wide open with many travel dates available for travel between April and January 2019. But like I said, this fare sale may only last hours or days. Once the allotted fare classes are booked, the pricing will go back to normal. The fares would required midweek departures and arrivals but that’s an insignificant hurdle to cross for this kind of deal!
Example fares include:
Munich to Los Angeles for €1339
Frankfurt to New York for €1339
Munich to Houston for €1339
Dusseldorf to Boston for €1339
and many other combos between German and US cities.
With demand expecting to be through the roof, SWISS has announced that will deploy a Boeing 777 to fly to Moscow during the 2018 World Cup later this year.
Specifically, SWISS has announced that a 777 will make the roundtrip between Zurich and Moscow (DME) on June 15 and 16, and again on July 16 and 17.
On those days, the 777 flights will be LX1326 that departs Zurich at 12p, arriving in Moscow at 4:25p while LX 1327 will depart Moscow at 5:45p, arriving back in Zurich at 8:15p.
Booking is obviously open for these unique flights…….
