Ready for another screamingly good Business Class deal?
We are seeing oneworld fares ex-Paris for the summer starting at $1,110, round trip.
I was excited for a similar deal not long ago, but in that deal you had to book two tickets and it started at $1,300.
The good: Wide open summer availability, range of airlines (take your pick of EU/UK-based oneworld airlines or American), destinations all over the United States. Good for one or more people (not a companion fare).
The bad: Most of you are US based, meaning that you’d need to get to Paris.
The interesting: If you were thinking you could be on board with two trips to France or even Europe this year, you could nest this deal inside of two one-way award tickets and construct two trips. You could also even consider using it as a one-way back (i.e. use miles to get there and buy this for the way back, throwing away the return).
It’s also bookable via portals, so you could book using Chase Ultimate Rewards points (remember, you get 1.5 cents per point if you have the Chase Sapphire Reserve) or an American Express Business Platinum (35% points rebate on First and Business Class fares).
And while there’s no right airline to book, I could be inclined to book BA so I could credit the miles to Alaska, given both the high value of Alaska miles and the high earning rate on premium BA fares.
Use Google Flights (I have a sample search in this link) and refine to your city or leave it wide (i.e. I have it set to United States to find the deals).
To Book: If you aren’t using a portal, I would advise using Priceline to book because, with Priceline, when you buy on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, you get until 11:29PM Eastern Time on Monday to cancel.
