To complement the First Class Fare Sale currently underway, LUFTHANSA has also lowered their Business Class fares for the Holiday Season. These kind of fare sales are an annual event each holiday season where passengers can usually save upwards of 50% or more from regular fare rates.
The highlight for this sale is for travel between New York and Dusseldorf for only $2100. Otherwise most East Coast departures to Lufthansa’s European destinations range between $2200 and $2600. Departures from the West Coast start at only $3200. The best value as far as cents-per-mile is concerned is perhaps Houston – Istanbul which is showing for only $2990.
As with the First Class Sale currently underway, these fares are available only until November 17, 2014. Departures must take place between December 15 and January 3. Return flights must take place between December 22 and January 17. The fares are valid for flights operated by Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian, Brussels, Air Canada and United.
My personal recommendation is to fly aboard Lufthansa, Austrian or SWISS operated flights. All have excellent Business Class cabins and hospitality. In my opinion your best experience may come aboard a Lufthansa 747-8i which are all outfitted with the new Business Class seat that has been very popular with passengers. For the best 747-8i experience, sit in the upper deck — it provides a very quiet and ‘private’ jet type of an experience.
