Lufthansa is currently running a Business Class fare sale between the US and Europe that has fares starting as low as $2699. It’s been a little while since the last Biz Class fare sale, so it’s nice to finally see attractive pricing again!
The best deal appears to be travel between Houston and Stockholm, with fares running at only $2699. Otherwise fares start at the $2800-3200 range for departures from East Coast and Midwest gateways, while west coast departures range from the mid $3000 to low $4000 range.
Granted that these are not the lowest Business Class fares that we’ve ever seen but they’re better than typical Business Class fares. Also, please note that these fares are booking as ‘P’ fares and will earn 100% of miles flown.
I think with the new Premium Economy seats and their pricing levels that the days of $2000 Business Class fares may very well be behind us and fares from the high $2000 to low $4000 may become the new normal for Biz Class fares when they go on sale.
Keep in mind that the flights may be operated by Air Canada, United, Austrian, Lufthansa, SWISS or Brussels so pay attention when booking your ticket! My recommendation would be to stick with the LH Group, just make sure that your LH flights have the new Business Class cabin on your routes.

Departures must take place between June 26 and August 29, 2015
