Two of the best business deals I've ever seen have just popped up. Like Ethan Hunt in Mission Impossible, these flights, if you choose to accept them will not last. In one case literally. Whether you want to go to the United States in flat bed business or South American hotspots Rio or Buenos Aires in the same style, I've got two deals that don't get better and need to be booked fast! Don't forget, both are round trip which makes these prices truly amazing.
Frankfurt To Buenos Aires/Rio: £899 (€1218)
Departing Frankfurt, which you should use Avios or cheap flights to get to, you can fly direct to Sao Paulo, Brazil before connecting on to Buenos Aires, Montevideo or Asuncion. As it turns from sweater weather to jacket weather here in the northern hemisphere, it's just heating up down south in these two fantastic countries. Literally, it's spring. For all you British Airways nuts, you can even earn huge tier points and Avios by crediting the TAM flights to British Airways! These fares are pricing out at 1218 euros which converts to £899 GBP. This is a steal, often cheaper than economy pricing, to a part of the world you cannot miss. Go for the steak and red wine, stay for the weather. If you happen to get some great wine, bring me some back to say thanks!
The bad news? You must book this before tomorrow (Oct. 7) when the fare expires and it's only valid for travel in November. If you have a week of holiday you've been dying to use or want to give yourself an early holiday present grab this...fast! Here's a booking link for a valid itinerary to Paraguay. I recommend plugging in your own and booking through your favorite online travel agency or TAM directly using code BUE or EZE for Buenos Aires. This deal was found using my own tips on how to find CHEAP business and first class tickets on the FlyerTalk Premium Fare Forum. Many thanks as always to the Flyertalk kings that post these deals kindly. Happy hunting!
Stavanger To Houston: £550 (€744)
When I said one of these deals was expiring I meant it literally. SAS, the Scandinavian Star Alliance airline has operated a really neat unique all business class service from Stavanger, Norway to Houston, USA. The flight features only 44 flat bed seats in a style very similar to British Airways "baby bus" London City to New York flights. The route sadly terminates October 23rd and so from now until...then, they are offering £550 return tickets.
If you can find a long weekend and burn a few vacation days it's still warm in Texas and it puts you in a great part of the world for a quick stopover in Los Angeles or San Francisco, less than a couple hour flight away. Here's a link to the SAS direct booking site (which you may need to translate) to take advantage of the deal. Again, an easy positioning flight from most of western Europe and given that it goes direct, it's just one connection. If you're a nostalgic aviation geek or just want some sun deep in the heart of Texas put on your cowboy boots fast and snag one of these semi historic tickets.
I'm of the thought process that for deals this good it's worth a little effort. Sure, I love leaving from the airport closest to me and flying direct but given that it's usually about 10x more expensive, I'm willing to sacrifice a few hours for ten hours in comfort, great food and airport benefits. If you've been wanting to hit the states or venture down to South America this is a fantastic opportunity to do it in a way only imagined by most. Let me know how it goes!
