Lufthansa is currently holding a First Class fare sale that discounts many of their routes by up to 50% off of their regular rates.   What this means is that you can travel from the USA to fantastic European destinations for what is normally a ‘Business Class Price’.

For example,  First Class travel between Boston and Brussels can be had for only $5040.   Otherwise most East Coast departures to Europe run in the very low $6000 range, while Central and West Coast USA departures begin at $7000.

These fares are in place until November 17 and are valid for departures between December 15 and January 3.  Return flights need to talk place between December 22 and January 7, 2015.   Perfect timing if you’re considering visiting Europe for Christmas and for the peak of Europe’s Christmas Market season.

Lufthansa’s First Class product has earned a 5-Star rating and is among the finest air travel experiences available.   Considering that the fleet has been recently overhauled to feature a new First Class seat and fantastic ground services such as the ‘beloved’ First Class Terminal in Frankfurt, it’s easy to see why so many passengers come away loving their LH First Class experience.  As a matter of fact, the FCT is nearing the completion of a minor facelift to further enhance the experience.

A word of WARNING:   This fare sale is valid for flights operated by Lufthansa, United, Air Canada, SWISS, Austrian and Brussels Airlines.   Please note that only Lufthansa, SWISS and United offer a dedicated first class cabin.   I STRONGLY recommend that you book your flights so that they are operated by Lufthansa or SWISS since that will give you a superior First Class experience both in the air and on the ground.    Flying with United’s First Class will not allow you entry into Lufthansa First Class Terminal or LH’s and SWISS’ First Class lounges!   So if you are going to spend $5000 or more on a ticket, make sure to get the best possible booking.   Send me a note if you need help building a First Class itinerary.
