Both airlines began advertising a 3 day Economy Fare sale from the USA to Europe running between now and August 5.

The fare sale covers all of their US gateways.   Most fares from the Midwest and East Coast range between $800 and $900 while West Coast fares range between $950 and $1050.  However, the absolute best fare that I was able to find was a very attractive $659 between Orlando and Copenhagen advertised by Lufthansa.

The fare sales are a bit of an overlap since either carrier can operate your flight.  Additionally Austrian, Brussels, Air Canada and United can be flown as well.  Just pay attention to your carrier since the miles you earn will be determined by the carrier operating your flight.  With these deep-discount Economy fare ‘buckets’, there are instances where a non LH Group flight will earn you ZERO miles.

The fare sale covers travel for 2 separate periods.   One sale covers travel between August 23 and October 31 while the 2nd part of the sale covers November 1 to December 10.     Fares were generally lower for the November-December option.
