If you want to try out SWISS and Lufthansa in Business Class or First Class, there are some good deals available for travel from London or Manchester to Dubai.
There is only availability between June and September 2023 when the weather isn’t the most pleasant. A six night stay is required.
You can’t argue with the pricing. Here’s London to Dubai in Business Class for £1,276 return:
Here is First Class for £2,055 (I can only find First Class deals on SWISS):
The snag is that your return flight options leave at either midnight or 1am, which is hardly a great way to maximise the First Class experience.
Our last SWISS First Class review is here (a very old one, but I flew it back in 2019 and little had changed) and our 2021 SWISS Business Class review is here. Our latest Lufthansa Business Class review is here (again, I’ve done it on holiday flights more recently and little has changed – but Lufthansa has a lot of different aircraft types so do check).
You can book and check pricing on the SWISS website here.
