After yesterday’s brief surprise ‘fare sale’ that was giving away Business Class travel between the USA and Europe for only $1500 R/T , it looks like the deal is back in a limited manner.
Last night you could have booked travel to most of Europe from non-major US gateways for $1500 or less in some cases. The fares were basically bought up within 6-8 hours after being released but it now looks as though a limited number of opportunities has re-emerged.
As of an hour ago or so, I noticed that Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian, Brussels, Air Canada and United are once again offering business fares that are equal to or below economy fare tickets. This time though the options are fewer and further between and primarily focus on most of Italy and France. There are however a few pockets available to London and Amsterdam.
The key to finding this unadvertised special is to book travel from non-hub cities in the USA. In other words, you won’t find these fares as easily from places like NYC or ORD. Its not to say that you won’t but the odds are not with you.
