You might actually sleep on the plane…

When you’re going somewhere exciting, 10 hours on the plane often flies by. But on the way back, when you’re catching up on work emails and planning the week ahead, the walls start to close in. If you want the best comfort for your dollar, these premium economy deals from Swiss and Lufthansa bring quite a few extra inches of recline and legroom, with a price tag usually found in economy. The only question you need to answer: Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok or Shanghai?

Swiss and Lufthansa are carving out some space in the UK travel market, with super low fares in both economy and premium economy. In the sale, you can jet off from: London, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh or Glasgow to Bangkok, Hong Kong, Shanghai or Singapore. With even the best economy prices to Asia virtually never below £350 and more often around £500, these £575+ are almost like a free upgrade to premium. Oh, and you earn more miles in premium too.

These deals are available in a few different date ranges, so pay close attention so that you don’t end up searching like an idiot and complaining that you can’t find things that never existed. Not that any of you have ever done such a thing. These deals are available from: October 23rd, 2018 through December 8th, 2018, and then again from December 24th, 2018 thru March 22nd, 2019. Finally, they make one last appearance from April 22nd, 2019 thru June 18th, 2019. Don’t worry if you can’t keep up with all the numbers, the Lufthansa and Swiss booking pages makes it really easy.

Easy. The economy deals can be booked here with Swiss or Lufthansa. The premium economy deals must be booked here with Lufthansa, because Swiss Air doesn’t actually offer Premium Economy, yet. The links take you directly to the sale pages which have all the prices, and even show you when the fares are available. If you’re struggling to find the deals, you can always pull them up on Google Flights using this link. The big question: which city? They’re all brilliant. Here are a few ideas, like: what not to do in Bangkok, and why Singapore is amazing
