Cheap Business Class to Europe

Currently both Oneworld (British Airways, American) and SkyTeam (Delta, KLM, Air France) airlines have some amazing fares between the United States and Europe in business class. They seem to be targeting United hubs for this sale. Let’s take a look.

Sample Fares/Routes

Here are some of the fares that I have found in the past few minutes:

San Francisco to Istanbul on KLM/Air France for $1,085 roundtrip

Cheap Business Class to Europe

San Francisco to Zurich on Delta for $1,570 roundtrip.

Other fares available for the Summer and into the Fall.

  • DEN-ZRH $1,570 roundtrip
  • IAH-ZRH $1,520 roundtrip
  • IAH-IST $1,283 roundtrip
  • IAH-VCE $1,057 after AARP & Visa discounts
  • EWR-IST $1,160 roundtrip
  • IAH-MUC $1,560 roundtrip

And more. Basically search Google Flights for flights from a United hub (SFO, IAH, DEN, EWR, ORD, CLE) to VCE, IST, MUC or ZRH. There may be other cities as well. You can book these tickets directly with the airlines.


These business class fares probably won’t last long. Most of the fares available are on SkyTeam, however the Houston to Venice fare is on British Airways. Happy booking!

  1. Hey Shawn. When deals like this come up, what awesome ninja tricks do you suggest? Would be great if you outlined the strategies for booking because it would totally help to see whats possible. AARP + BA Visa CC code + OTA + portal + GC? Not really sure all the different possibilities. Also, are we able to use AMEX companion pass for this? and do any sites offer split payment CC to rake in the deal like Amex Sync? Just wondering, how to maximize for future knowledge.
