Thanksgiving is one of the best times to purchase business class tickets for cheap, since it’s a slow period for business travelers.
Right now, there’s a terrific amount of discounted business class seats on American Airlines, British Airways, Iberia and OpenSkies to Europe from JFK in New York.
You can take advantage of this sale to: Amsterda, Athens, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Rome, Frankfurt, Istanbul, London, Lisbon, Madrid, Milon, Olso and Berlin.
To book this, you’ll need an AARP membership, which anyone can get for just $16 a year. This will save you $400 on the fare, and those with a Chase British Airways card can save an additional 10% by using the code “CARDOFFERU” in the checkout process (not included in the itineraries below).
These fares are only available for travel over Thanksgiving week, so you’ll need to depart several days before before the Thanksgiving holiday and return shortly after.
Here’s a sample itinerary from JFK to Amsterdam:
Lisbon is one of the cheapest of the cities on sale:
Paris isn’t too bad, either.
To book this, using your AARP login, go to their British Airways booking portal here, and then play with your dates and cities to find and ideal fare. Once you find a fare, go through the payment process as usual. It’s worth applying the “CARDOFFERU” discount whether you have the British Airways credit card or not, since it may apply regardless, saving you a few hundred extra dollars.
Will you be going to Europe on any of these very cheap Thanksgiving fares?
