FARE WAR: Europe in Business Under $2k


A fare war is a-brewing this morning on business class tickets to London and Paris beginning in late spring through as far out as the end of the year. These tickets can be found through a quick search of Google Flights. Essentially, pick almost any major airport east of Texas, and these business class fares are available on an alliance that doesn’t call that airport its hub.

For example, you can fly from Dallas to London on Delta for $2,000.

Or, fly Philadelphia to London on StarAlliance for $1,999.

But the best value seems to be flying Atlanta to Paris on OneWorld for as little as $1,870.

If you purchase that OneWorld ticket on British Air, you can stack this sale with British Airways’ AARP discount of $200 per ticket. Not an AARP member? You can join, no matter your age, for only $12/year. And, it gets even better! If you have a British Airways Chase Credit Card, pay with that credit card and use coupon code “CARDOFFERU” to get a further 10% discount.

All-in, this means you can get from Atlanta to Paris in business class for only $1,503!

That’s some pretty ridiculous pricing over the busy summer travel season, which will get you a flat bed the whole ride across the Atlantic, as well as 17,708 elite qualifying miles toward status with American. Nice!

Book now. These fares are sure to not last.
