Lufthansa is currently running an attractive fare sale for First Class travel between the US and Europe with fares as low as $5240. This is the kind of fare sale I like to take advantage of because it lets me book a First Class ticket for what normally is a Business Class price.
By now, I’m sure you are all familiar with the outstanding amenities involved with flying First Class with Lufthansa including access to the world’s finest dedicated First Class Terminal in Frankfurt, private car transfer between terminal and aircraft in certain situations and 5-Star treatment during your flight. Additionally, Lufthansa has been upgrading their long-haul fleet to a new First Class cabin which puts the cherry on top of a fantastic experience!
As far as the fare sale is concerned, it runs until March 15 and is valid for departures taking place between April 13 and April 25 and returning between April 19 and May 1. Additionally, tickets must be purchased 28 days prior to departure.
I usually warn readers during these fare sales to be careful of operating carriers. In this particular case I have found several flights options that are operated by United Airlines. While their First Class product is great, it is not Lufthansa First Class. More importantly, if you fly on United you will NOT have access to Lufthansa’s First Class Terminal or Lounges! So keep that in mind when reviewing reservation options. It’s that important! 🙂
My suggestion would be to book flights operated by Lufthansa’s 747-8i or Airbus A380 aircraft. They both feature Lufthansa’s new First Class cabin throughout the aircraft types. Lufthansa’s 747-400s, A340 and A330 aircraft are currently undergoing upgrades so there is a possibility that you may not see the new First Class product if your flight is operated by one of these birds. Regardless, you will be pampered and spoiled by a fantastic crew, aircraft and ground services!
And don’t forget to get your duck! 😉
