Earlier today Lufthansa announced a First Class fare sale from the USA to Europe with fares starting as low as $5029.

Lufthansa typically puts First Class Tickets on sale about 2-3 times a year — In the Spring, mid-Summer and during the Holiday Season in the Winter.    For this edition the fare sale runs until November 5 and is valid for travel between December 14 and January 7.   Specifically, departures can take place between December 14 and January 3 and return flights must occur between December 25 and January 7.  Tickets need to be purchased 30 days in advance.

The best published fare during this sale is from Boston to Moscow for $5029 but when I went to ‘sample book’ it, the fare actually came in at $4987.

Other attractive examples (there are many more at Lufthansa.com) are:

Chicago – Prague for $5529

Miami – Venice for $6029

Denver – Copenhagen for $5979

The fare sale credits normal First Class mileage credit so for Miles & More member, that amounts to 300% of miles flown. However, other Star Alliance plans will have varying degrees of how many miles are earned, so please check your respective program for details.  Also, be aware that the flights can be operated by Lufthansa, Swiss or United – so you may want to pay special attention when looking at your exact flight options!

A fare sale like this is always a great opportunity to treat yourself to one of travel’s finest experiences.  Over the last few months, Lufthansa has been earned several awards for having an outstanding First Class product including SkyTrax’s 5-Star award for best First Class Lounges and 3 American Hospitality Association Awards for Best First Terminal, Best Onboard First Class Product and for their First Class Lounge in New York’s JFK.

Then there is the First Class Duck as well………perhaps the most important reason to experience Lufthansa’s First Class hospitality. 🙂
