We’ve seen a number of airlines unveil some form of savings or discount in honor of Black Friday but I can’t say that any that I’ve seen have been particularly exciting so far. Sadly, things don’t get much more exciting with Lufthansa’s Black Friday promotion in which a promo code will get you $100 off most fares. Fortunately, the fact that codeshare flights are eligible for the discount will make this a more useful promotion than it otherwise may have been.

The promotion

  • Use promo code ZSD3BES328E8
  • Save $100 on flights from the US to Europe, Africa, the Middle East, or Asia

Quick thoughts

If you were already planning a trip to anywhere that Lufthansa or its codeshare partners fly to, the $100 saving on offer here may be useful but it’s unlikely to be enough to get anyone thinking about making new plans.

Still, a nice aspect of this promotion is that the discount is valid on Lufthansa’s codeshare partners which means that as long as you’re booking through the Lufthansa site, you can get $100 off a wide variety of non-stop flights that United Airlines operates between the US and Europe (so a layover in Germany will not always be required).

Be aware that a particularly annoying aspect of this promotion is that the promo code applies per booking and not per person. If you’re traveling as a couple, as a family, or as a group, you’ll have to make separate bookings to get each person a discounted ticket. It may be that the Lufthansa call center can override this and apply a discount to every person in a single booking, but there’s no way to do it online (I tried!).

Bottom Line

For the next 7 days, Lufthansa is offering a $100 discount on bookings for travel from the US to Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia and while this isn’t a particularly exciting discount, the fact that it can be used on a wide variety of codeshare flights that are bookable through Lufthansa makes it a discount that should be relatively easy to use.
