As I was trying to figure out how to make the most of the current good Qatar Airways deals between Europe and Dubai I accidentally stumbled upon a truly amazing Business Class fare from Lufthansa. As things stand the German airline is offering roundtrip Business Class travel between Milan and Dubai from just $782/£588/€687.
American Airlines has filed some pretty good Economy Class fares for travel between Los Angeles and their new South Pacific destinations of Sydney and Auckland. Good fare availability is sporadic, which isn't ideal, but the better prices are available in Summer and Winter so, if you can be a little flexible with your dates, you should be able to find something which works for you.
Last week I posted a few good Qatar Airlines Business Class fares for travel from Helsinki to the Middle East and Asia but, somehow, I didn't notice this great fare that's available for travel from Stockholm to Dubai on similar dates. The cost isn't the only reason I think this fare is great but I'll come on to why that' so a bit later in this post.
British Airways has announced a big sale for departures from London Heathrow and Gatwick and I've for a full round-up of the long-haul deals in the blog post below. Some of the premium cabin deals look very interesting indeed but I should temper any excitement by pointing out that the deals are good for departures from the UK (where high taxes and high demand ordinarily make premium cabin flights expensive). These aren't deals on a par with what we've seen in recent weeks out of Paris and out of New York but some of them still merit a closer look.
It looks like Qatar Airways still has some good Business Class fares available from Helsinki to the Middle East and Asia for travel through to the end of March 2017. These aren't fares that are going to blow anyone away but, if you're looking for a comfortable way to get to destinations like Dubai, Thailand or even Vietnam then these fares could be of interest.
Both oneWorld and SkyTeam have some excellent fares for summer travel between New York and various European cities. The lowest prices can be found on British Airways courtesy of the AARP and the Chase discounts but, even if you don't have access to those, these are definitely fares that should be of interest.
American Airlines has posted a truly fantastic Business Class fare for travel from Paris Charles De Gaulle to New York JFK. At $1,223 round trip this fare is cheaper than a lot of summer Economy Class fares across the Atlantic and is a great example of why I believe that, if you can be flexible with your travel plans, you can get away without having a large mileage balance and still travel in comfort.
It looks like SkyTeam has loaded a huge Business Class sale for travel between the US and Europe and, at least on the West Coast, it looks like OneWorld is replying in kind - I love a good fare war! Great Business Class fares are available from all parts of the US and the available dates range from August right the way through March & April 2017 - so the fares aren't exactly restrictive.
Last week I posted about a great Business Class fare for travel between Milan and New York which I thought would be pretty hard to beat but that's exactly what's happened. Once again the fare is for travel with the oneWorld alliance and, once again, it's Finnair that's the key to the deal.
Qatar Airways has published a Business Class sale for travel from the UK and, surprisingly for departures from the UK, some of the fares aren't too bad. The biggest catch to the sale is that flights must be booked by 31 May so you don't have too much time to think things over or to rearrange plans if you see a fare that interests you.
