Business Class as Low as €1,322 From Germany to the United States
For as little as €1,322.27 — including taxes and fees — you can fly as a passenger in the business class cabin of an airplane operated by SAS Scandinavian Airlines from Düsseldorf, Munich or Frankfurt to either New York, Washington or Chicago; and you can earn 200 percent EuroBonus frequent flier loyalty program points in the process.
Of course, you can choose to earn frequent flier loyalty program miles on your preferred Star Alliance partner airline instead of EuroBonus.
You must book this airfare by Monday, September 15, 2014.
€1,322.27 translates to approximately $1,710.00; but would it not be great for those who use American dollars if the euro and dollar were at parity?
That is wishful thinking for now; but for this promotion, the dates of travel are limited to the following:
- November 22, 2014 through November 29, 2014
- December 21, 2014 through January 4, 2015
- March 31, 2015 through April 5, 2015
- July 1, 2015 through August 15, 2015
In other words, you can enjoy such holidays in the United States as Thanksgiving or Christmas.
I attempted a “dummy” booking for round-trip travel departing Düsseldorf on November 22, 2014 and returning from Newark on November 28, 2014; and sure enough, there was the SAS Business Saver airfare of €1,322.27 — €330.00 of which is a fuel and security surcharge.
Keep in mind that these are not non-stop flights, as for this trip, you stop in Copenhagen for almost five hours on the outbound flight and for almost seven hours on the return flight.
You can be in Copenhagen in as few as 30 minutes from the airport — I have personally done that. I have also taken the train from the airport across the Oresund Bridge to Malmö in Sweden, which can take as few as 35 minutes for the trip in one direction…
…or you can stay at Copenhagen Airport and enjoy the lounge if time is too tight to leave, as you will have lounge access on your trip.
Stopovers on other flight itineraries could include such airports as in Oslo or Stockholm.
Although I already assumed the outcome, I decided anyway to attempt to start the trip at Newark to Düsseldorf round-trip for the same dates; and the total price was €2,609.51 — nearly double the airfare.
If you have the opportunity to travel to the United States from Germany seated in the premium class cabin for a good airfare, this appears to be the opportunity to do so — but keep in mind that the SAS Business Saver fare is not refundable. Terms and conditions apply.
