Should you stay or should you go?
The rush, the thrill and the sheer excitement of a ridiculously good deal are sometimes too much to handle. And after you’ve booked, things can be even worse. When you’ve taken advantage of one of the best deals of the year, the “hangover” feeling lingers as you look at prices for future plans. But with that said, there are still excellent deals to be had, which can save hundreds if not thousands versus standard prices. We’re holding out hope for a mega sale, but if you need to book something sooner than later, these deals are your best bet…
Melbourne is quite a journey from virtually anywhere in Europe. If you can start in Stockholm, you can enjoy round trip business on Etihad, with either Air Baltic, Lufthansa or SAS supplying the short haul segment to feed you to an Etihad city. You’ll go via Abu Dhabi and enjoy 787 business studio and even have the potential to route back via London on the A380.
Dates: Late October 2018 thru January 2019.
Stockholm, again! We’d hope Qatar will launch another great sale in the coming weeks, but in the event that they don’t it’s worth highlighting this fare, which is technically from the current Qatar “global” sale, even if it doesn’t feel like much of one! £1223 for round trip business class is fantastic, especially with Qatar’s award winning service.
Dates: October 2018 thru March 2019.
Lufthansa and Swiss continue their all out assault on the UK travel market with £1400 round trip business class to one of the UK’s most popular destinations. Lufthansa recently changed their policy to allow even the lowest business class tickets to be upgraded, so this could be a neat opportunity to check out one of the best first class seats, if business isn’t fancy enough for you. Swiss also flies their new Boeing 777 on this route, which is a fantastic ride…
The Dates: Late November thru May 2019, cheapest from December thru February.
Shanghai, anyone? British Airways is offering low fares from Luxembourg to Shanghai, which makes the 11+ hour journey each way a whole lot nicer. At the moment, these are the lowest deals for travel from Europe to Shanghai, and is about the same price others are charging for Premium economy, with one exception.
Dates: September 2018 thru June 2019.
