Lufthansa has started a Premium Economy fare sale that runs for the next 7 days with fares as low as I’ve ever seen since the roll-out of the product.    For example, New York – Milan can be had for as low as $1329, and Chicago – Athens for only $1479.

Attractive fares exist from all of LH’s North American gateways to most European destinations.   Most east cost fares range in the $1400-1600 area, the mid-west ranges in the $1500-1700 area, while the west coast runs about $1700 to $1900.    These fares are not much higher than peak economy class fares and you certainly pick up a much better value with Premium Economy seats.

The fares book into ‘N’ class so you’ll earn 100% of miles flown towards your Miles&More account balances.  Premium Economy tickets also allow you to check 2 bags (50 lbs each) free of charge.


The fares cover Spring and early Summer travel.  Specifically:

Departures must take place between April 13 and May 12.

Returns must take place between April 13 and August 12.

Weekend surcharges apply (so book Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday travel for best pricing).

Tickets must be purchased 28 days prior to departure.
