Sub $3K Business Class Fares on SkyTeam Partners – North America to Europe

Spring is just around the corner, we can tell because we’re hearing about all the great fares to Europe! Business Class travel to Europe tends to be a smidge cheaper  thanks to a general decrease in Business Class  travel over the summer.


The Scoop

SkyTeam partners are offering some great Business Class fares from North America to Europe – we’re talking starting less than $3000 round trip.

Delta and KLM are offering a Business Class sale goes through February 28, 2017 for tickets booked for travel from April 4-April 21, 2017 (although we found some great fares outside of that date range!). Book directly with Delta here or KLM here

Delta’s got some great Delta One rates to Europe. Out of New York, rates start at under $3,000 – which is pretty fantastic. Availability is limited to specific dates of travel, depending on the length of your trip.

We took a look at the JFK-CDG route for a 7 day trip and found a few options  under $3k (departing in the middle of the week, no surprise there). However, it looks like the rate is available for just about every nonstop flight out of JFK that day – including flights operated by Air France!

On the return, you can opt for a nonstop flight back to JFK (also operated by AF) or hop over to Amsterdam and fly back to New York via KLM


And speaking of KLM, their spring sale prices and routes align with Delta’s. Booking via KLM is a good option if you’re a Flying Blue Member or if the ticket could potentially earn more miles when accruing based on distance rather than dollar spend.

The Takeaway

If I didn’t already have my travel planned, I would definitely be jumping on these. These may not be the best prices we’ve seen for business class to Europe (I paid $1,500 round trip to Germany last fall), these are definitely a good deal considering how much airlines usually charge.

In terms of availability, the best option is to stay for a week (not that I see any real problem with that), there are some great deals to be found for a 3 or 4 day trip, if you’re flexible.
