I was a bit worried about the lack of a Swiss/Lufthansa sale for a while as all they were offering was a £25 off flights voucher.

The sale has now launched and requires two people to travel but I have found the fare below works with just one to Tokyo & Osaka, so it is always worth trying! One thing to bear in mind that although LH/LX will now refund your money, they are still one of the worst in terms of timescales! Another thing to consider is that neither Germany or Switzerland are on the travel corridor list so you would have to quarantine when you return if that does not change. At the moment the sale is only live and bookable on the Swiss website but I am sure Lufthansa will follow. 

Business class companion fares

The stand out fares for me are Mauritius at £1028pp and the Seychelles at £1158. Dubai is also excellent value at £899.

Business class companion fare for TWO people return start from:

  • Bangkok (BKK) from £2198
  • Cape Town (CPT) from £2598
  • Dubai (DXB) from £1798
  • Havana (HAV) from £2302
  • Hong Kong (HKG) from £2198
  • Johannesburg (JNB) from £2598
  • Mahe (SEZ) from £2306
  • Male (MLE) from £2698
  • Marsa Alam (RMF) from £998
  • Mauritius (MRU) from £2056
  • Muscat (MCT) from £2798
  • Punta Cana (PUJ) from £2550
  • São Paulo (GRU )from £2598
  • Singapore (SIN) from £2398
  • Tel Aviv (TLV) from £858
  • Tokyo (NRT) from £2998

Not listed officially, but Osaka is £1507 pp and seems bookable solo. 

You can fly on Lufthansa or Swiss. I would go for Swiss myself as the aircraft as their B777 business class seats are definitely better than Lufthansa with a lot more privacy. You can read our review of the Lufthansa business class here. Swiss alternate between solo and pair of window seats. Lufthansa is 2-2-2 for the whole cabin. 

The only thing to bear in mind is that if you are traveling solo and don’t have status, the Swiss solo “throne seats” come at a charge of around £160 per leg! Personally, I would go for the middle seats at least one way than pay over £300 for seat selection!

First class companion fares

For first class either airline has a great product. Lufthansa has the edge in terms of the ground product in normal times with a separate First class terminal and the chance to be driven directly to the aircraft. The Swiss seats are more private and a bit more stylish.

  1. Great to see some good fares, but all the while I will be treated like a disease I won’t be getting on a plane. I’ll be travelling with the first airline that treats us like people.

  2. Hi Michelle,

    What route is £430 J return, as per your title?

  3. I guess its worth to consider for second part of 2021. I am curious if vouchers for previously cancelled flights can be used as well?

  4. 27 November was my birthday and TLFL’s tip got me a great present from SWISS. Two pax London to Nairobi Business Class £1,956 for June 2021. This replaces our June 2020 cancelled super-bargain KLM flight in Business which cost £2,711. (The KLM price is engrained on my heart because of the ongoing seven month argument I’m still having with Opodo and KLM to get a refund. Credit card repaid me.)
