Lufthansa announced earlier today a fare sale from the USA to Budapest that has fares ranging between $800 and $1100 from most US Gateways.

The best deal that I could find was $805 from Houston (IAH) which was even a few dollars less than Lufthansa’s advertised rate of $829.    Most East Coast departures range between $950 and $1050, while most of the West Coast fares are in the $1100-1150 range.


The fare sale ends on April 10 and is valid for the following travel dates:

       Departures must take place between April 29 and May 15, 2014                                              

Returns must take place between May 6 and August 15, 2014.

Tickets must be purchased 14 days prior to departure.

As always, please be mindful of which airline will actually be operating your flight.   For this promo, Lufthansa, United, Air Canada and SWISS are all potential carriers so plan accordingly.   The airlines you fly go a long way in determining the quality of your flights as well as determining the kind of miles that you will earn for your Frequent Flyer programs.   Fares like this normally are coded as discount or deep-discount economy fares and in some cases may earn little or no miles for you.    If you are unsure, leave a comment or email me and I’ll help you sort out the details!
