Good Lufthansa / SWISS Business Class flight deals to Asia and Africa

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

Lufthansa and SWISS are offering some good Business Class fares from the UK to Asia for the next few days.

You need to book by 18th November.  A minimum stay of six days is required.  With a few exceptions for the Africa deals, you can book up to a year ahead.

You can depart from London, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh or Glasgow.  You will be changing planes in Germany or Switzerland.  I also saw the occasional option on Austrian via Vienna.

Lufthansa SWISS sale to Asia

Headline prices are:

  • Hong Kong £1699 Business, £599 Premium Economy (in reality you can find fares for £1399)

  • Mauritius £1799 Business, £999 Premium Economy
  • Addis Ababa £1349 Business, £549 Premium Economy
  • Delhi £1199 Business, £662 Premium Economy
  • Nairobi £1399 Business, £704 Premium Economy

The Lufthansa home page is here and the SWISS page is here.  Either site will show prices across Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian.

I reviewed Lufthansa’s current Business Class seat recently – see here.  If you are travelling on your own, I would suggest using SWISS if you can because they have a lot of solo seats whilst Lufthansa is 2 x 2 x 2 throughout.

Your best option to maximise your miles when paying is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold.  This offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you when you book flight tickets directly with an airline.  Our review of Amex Gold is here.

    OT: Anybody know if Lloyds Avios cards treat a payment to a Brighton based company through Curve as a cash advance? Cheers!

    • If you don’t get an answer try a small payment to check. Somebody commented on this sibce tge changes but I forget what they said.

    • No. You can pay it. No worries. Can pay anyone with curve. They all know they can charge u bit none will. Sweet as..

    • So, when Curve will take Amex again, will I be able to pay the said Brigthon company with the Amex I have linked to my Curve card? 😀
