Excellent 2-4-1 First and Business deals from the UK, from £999, with Lufthansa and SWISS

Links on Head for Points pay us an affiliate commission. A list of our partners is here.

SWISS and Lufthansa have launched some EXCELLENT First Class and Business Class ‘2-4-1’ deals.  Unlike some fare deals we write about, these are for departures from the UK so you don’t need to position yourself somewhere in Europe first.

Even better for those who live outside London, you can also book these deals from UK regional airports served by SWISS or Lufthansa.

Business Class deals

Here are the Business Class deals.  These are return prices per person from London BUT based on two people travelling.

Lufthansa A350 business class

With Lufthansa, you can depart from London, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow or Manchester.  You can book these deals here.

  • Abuja £1,250
  • Almaty £999
  • Astana £999
  • Bangkok £1,250
  • Beijing £1,500
  • Bengaluru £999
  • Bogota £1,500
  • Chengdu £1,350
  • Chennai £999
  • Dar es Salaam £999
  • Delhi £999
  • Guangzhou £1,350
  • Hong Kong £1,250
  • Lagos £999
  • Luanda £999
  • Mumbai £999
  • Nairobi £999
  • Port Harcourt £999
  • Rio de Janeiro £1,500
  • Sao Paulo £1,500
  • Shanghai £1,350

Lufthansa is 100% fully flat in business class, although not everyone is a fan of the current seat layout which means that both of you are sharing a footrest, albeit with a divider.  The A350 cabin is pictured above.  SWISS is better in this regard as the seats are not angled towards your neighbour.

That said …. as these are 2-4-1 deals it is highly likely that your neighbour will be your companion!

Swiss First Class

  • Two people must travel together
  • Travel at ANY point – subject to availability – until 31st July 2019 (until 30th June 2019 for China)
  • Must stay a Saturday night and the maximum stay is three months

Lufthansa is, perhaps, the most civilised First Class experience thereis.   Here is the review of my Lufthansa First Class flight last year.  And, of course, the First Class Terminal – yes, a whole terminal – in Frankfurt where you get driven to the steps of your plane is something everyone should try once.

SWISS offers an excellent First Class and Business Class service.   We are NOT talking Emirates or Etihad style private suites, by any means, but you get a good quality seat, good food and drink and a very attentive crew.  It is a very civilised experience.

I flew SWISS First Class earlier this year, although I didn’t review it for the site, and it was as impressive as usual, albeit I put it a notch below Lufthansa First Class as the food is not as outstanding.  I also have a SWISS Business Class flight booked for October for me and my family.  Here is an older review of SWISS First Class I did.

SWISS and Lufthansa are both part of Lufthansa’s Miles & More loyalty scheme, although you can of course credit your flight to any other Star Alliance programme.

    Managed to bag LHR-ZRH-PEK and returning PVG-ZRH-LHR in SWISS First over Easter next year. Open jaw wasn’t working when I tried to book so used a German based travel agent who got it to work.
