Good Lufthansa business class deals from Paris to Australia

Via Flyertalk, Lufthansa and SWISS have launched some aggressive deals to Australia out of Paris.

Prices are around €2300 (£2000) to Melbourne or Sydney.

Lufthansa deals to Sydney

The fare rules are:

Tickets must be issued by 16th November

Travel must commence by 30th September 2019

Stopovers permitted (one each-way) at €100 each

You may need to play around with your dates before you can find this price.  Here is an example I found on swiss.com for May at €2350, which lets you fly on Singapore Airlines for most of the trip (click to enlarge):

Of course, in that example you need to get to Paris and then change in Zurich and Hong Kong / Singapore so it isn’t the simplest routing even though the comfort factor is high!

If you don’t have a credit card with 0% foreign exchange fees, your best option for paying is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold which offers triple points – 3 per £1 – when you book flight tickets in a foreign currency.  This is because the transaction triggers the ‘double points for airline spend’ and the ‘double points for foreign spend’ bonuses.  Our review of Amex Gold is here.

Best availability is midweek.  Have a play around on lufthansa.com or swiss.com and see what comes up.
