Lufthansa’s current Economy Class Fare Sale from the US ends on August 31st and there are a few deals to be had.
The most attractive deal of the sale appears to be Tampa Bay – St. Petersburg for $599. And no, it’s not St. Petersburg, Florida.
Otherwise most fares from the East Coast start from the low $700s and West Coast fares start from the mid $800 range.
In addition to the August 31 deadline for the sale, here are the remaining Terms and Conditions:
Departures must take place between September 22 and October 25, 2015.
Returns must take place between September 23 and January 25, 2015.
Tickets must be purchased 28 days in advance.
Weekend departures/arrivals may incur minor surcharges.
Remember to pay attention to the carrier operating your flights when making reservations! Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian, Brussels, Air Canada and United can all potentially be booked. You should know my opinion on the matter by now!
Lufthansa announced today that it will begin to charge a fee for advanced seat assignments on long haul flights in lower level Economy fate classes. This means passengers that are book long haul flights in K, L, S, T, W economy fare classes now can pay €25 at time of booking (or anytime before the check-window opens) and select a seat. Passengers will be able to select a seat at no charge once inside the 23 hour pre-flight check-in period.
The new program is set to begin on April 28 and will be available through travel agents, online at Lufthansa.com and at Lufthansa kiosks at airports. There is a €25 fee for each seat reserved in advance.
Up until now passengers traveling in economy were able to select their seats at no cost at time of booking. Passengers traveling in full fare Economy, Business and First Class will continue to have fee-free seat selection ability as will HON Circle and Senator members.
Star Alliance Elite (Silver / Gold) level flyers that are not Miles & More elites will be subject to this policy.
Award Seats are not affected by this policy change. Passengers booking award seats are not subject to an advanced seat assignment fee.
