Buy Business Class Flights to Europe for Around $1,500 Right Now (Seriously!)
Think fastBusiness Class to Europe is on sale right now, but for how much longer, who knows?
Airfares are hovering around $1,500-$1,700 for scattered dates during this summer; this is half off (at least!) the usual price of Business Class and what you'd easily pay for Economy seats during peak summer travel. United initiated the sale, but it hasn't been publicized. Reading between the lines, this means act fast. The lowest airfares come from non-hub cities, so search for departures from places like San Jose versus San Francisco, or Boston or White Plains versus New York.
We recommend paying close attention to the itinerary before booking, and trying for a routing that includes Lufthansa from Washington D.C. to Frankfurt on the new Boeing 747-8i. It showed up for us while searching Dayton to Malta!
Popular Europe destinations for this sale include Venice, Paris, Milan, Amsterdam, Rome, Florence, Barcelona, Madrid, Nice and Istanbul.
But wait! The frenzy over these fares has Delta a little worried, enough to nearly match the prices on routes that United also serves. It's a fare war, y'all!
