Lufthansa Group has today announced that two of its airlines will be adding significant new services to the US as the aircraft monolith looks to expand its flights out of Munich and Seattle from 2020.
A number of the Lufthansa Group airlines are currently offering a very attractive sub $1,700 roundtrip fare for travel between Paris Charles de Gaulle and Bangkok. The primary airlines involved are SWISS and Lufthansa but flights are also available on Austrian Airlines at select times of the year.
A number of Star Alliance airlines are currently offering attractive prices on Business Class fares for travel between Nice and Beijing. These fares are readily available and the travel dates span the next 11 months so finding a fare that works for you shouldn't be a problem.
Scandinavia has been the starting point for quite a few good Business Class deals recently (like the great fares to the US West Coast and Qatar Airways' Business Class fares to Asia) and now Star Alliance has joined the party by posting some very good Business Class fares out of Scandinavia for travel to China.
Right now SWISS and Lufthansa are offering some very attractive Business Class fares between London and New Delhi and, considering how respected SWISS' Business Class offering is (Lufthansa less so) these fares are very tempting indeed.
Lufthansa has announced that during the month of July it will be offering its long-haul Business Class passengers the "opportunity to experience what life is like in outer space – at least in culinary terms".
Around two weeks ago British Airways announced that its biometric gate trials have gone so well in Los Angeles that it has rolled them out to Orlando and New York as well...and now Lufthansa is joining in at Los Angeles International Airport too.
Buy on board food options are commonplace on most airlines' short-haul routes all around the world but, when it comes to long-haul flights, it's generally only the low-cost carriers like WOW and Norwegian that ask Economy Class passengers to pay extra for their food. Now it looks like Lufthansa is joining the long-haul buy on board party...but not in a way that should worry fans of the airline.
Lufthansa has announced that it has opened its new lounge at Milan Malpensa airport and, from the information provided by the airline, it looks as if flyers will have a nice new place to relax or get some work done before a flight.
News that Lufthansa is eliminating First Class from two routes to the US (at least for summer 2018), news of a new Hilton opening in a beautiful part of Europe, details of an Emirates schedule change which sees an extension to the cut in service to New York and news that Singapore Airlines has scheduled its new A380 on its routes to London and Hong Kong.
