Lufthansa is taking an early start to one of their fall fare sales promotions. The current sale which runs until July 11, 2012 has several attractive fares. For example, New York – Berlin is only $644.00 (Roundtrip/taxes) and New York-Moscow is only $721.00 (Roundtrip/taxes). Otherwise most fares from the East Coast to Europe range from $673 to $1103. Fares from the West Coast (San Francisco) range between $1103.00 to $1253.00. Keep in mind that these fares are valid on flights operated by Lufthansa, Air Canada, Austrian, Swiss and United.

These fares are typical of fall fare sales but normally at these price levels the seats do not last for long (remember, you must book by July 11!). So if you have plans to travel to Europe this fall, this may be a great opportunity to book your tickets. I suspect a Business Class Fare Sale will be coming soon as well and based on past offers and those fares have ranged from $2200.00-$3500.00 for East Coast departures to Europe. Stay tuned for that!
