Paying less than coach prices for round trip flat bed business class to Thailand is just the ticket. Thanks to Fare Wars (and our friends on FlyerTalk) we are seeing unprecedentedly low business class offerings, truly elevating travel at minimal expense (see what I did there?). Earn miles, fly flat, drink champagne and enjoy the far reaches of the East in style. Thai food in Thailand? What's not to like?
The best news? Take your pick! Though Turkish Airlines will net you the lowest price at less than £700, you can snag seats on Swiss, Finnair or Cathay Pacific for less than £1000. These deals are valid from most of Scandinavia including Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo for travel virtually through to March of 2016. As with every deal this shocking, it can be worth using a few miles to position yourself to one of these cities. I'll trade one connection for lounges, a bed and a five course meal on board any day. Using 7,500 British Airways miles or less would get you in position from most Western European cities. The Turkish Airlines super deal from Copenhagen or Stockholm seems valid until Mid December yet the Cathay Pacific (on what could be an A350) deal picks up where Turkish left off in February and March of 2016 from Copenhagen. For an extra £300 I would personally opt for Cathay Pacific or Swiss given their superb service and the opportunity to fly the A350 next year. If your travel is taking place this year before December 16th, you simply can't beat less than £700 for round trip business class on a 10+ hour flight. Whatever your choice, you are winning, BIG TIME.
Use the ITA Matrix to find the pricing for your dates. As always, these fares will not last. The fares will price out in Swedish Krona, simply convert them on Google to get a sense of what it translates to in your local currency and then book via any third party site (you can also try the airline directly) like Edreams, Orbitz and more. Happy travels! Oh and if you take advantage, consider throwing a couple bucks in the tip jar? I just saved you a fortune and traded you cramped knees for a bed and all the champagne you can drink. Cheers.
