In the continuing theme of UK Swiss/Lufthansa First and business companion sales, the offer is now on from Amsterdam. These fares are some of the lowest we have seen. Despite the fact that you have to get to Amsterdam and I’m not a fan of the airport, at least getting there is easy from most parts of the UK, plus there are plenty of flights per day and it is relatively cheap.

First class fares

Swiss First Class sale

Swiss First class

Both Swiss and Lufthansa offer excellent first class products. I would probably go for Lufthansa for the ground services where you get a private First terminal at Frankfurt and driven to the aircraft in a Porsche! They also serve caviar on board too! I have flown Swiss first class and would highly recommend it too. It may not be as fancy as some of the Middle East airlines, but it is a sophisticated product with great food and service. Some of the prices are similar to what you would pay for a normal business class ticket, so they offer good value for money. Roving Reporter will be doing a review of his Swiss First experience in the future. Paul is also flying Swiss First this year.

The best first class fares per person return are:

  • Nairobi £1,1873
  • Cape Town £2,432
  • Johannesburg £1,757
  • Hong Kong £1,905
  • Delhi £1,349
  • Bangkok £1,590
  • Beijing £1,591
  • Singapore £1,871
  • Buenos Aires £2,408
  • Dubai £1,886

The offer page lists more destinations, but I either could not find any availability for the other places in the next 6 months or they were expensive.

Business class

Swiss B777 business class seat

Given a choice, I would choose Swiss over Lufthansa for business class. You can read Claudio’s recent review of Lufthansa long haul business class here. The Swiss cabins have a sophisticated feel to them with light wood with dark accents and seats. There is one flaw, in my opinion. The business class seats are not very comfortable for sleeping on the older A330 aircraft. They feel like they have a slight slope and are very low to the ground. They also had quite large gaps between the seat cushions when in bed mode.

Lufthansa B747 business class

However, at these prices, you may well think it is worth it, even for the older aircraft. I found them perfectly comfortable for sitting. The new seats on the B777 are much better and a good quality product. The B777s are available on quite a few routes such as Zurich to Bangkok, Singapore and Hong Kong. 

The offer page lists more destinations than my list below, but I either could not find any availability for the other places in the next 6 months or they were expensive. 

The best business class fares per person return are:

  • Tel Aviv £340 
  • Bangkok £924
  • Sao Paolo  £955
  • Nairobi £1,033
  • Hong Kong £1,127 
  • Dubai £815
  • Johannesburg £979 
  • Mumbai £1,099
  • Bengaluru £997
  • Singapore £993
  • Buenos Aires £1,302

  1. I am surprised they still fly to the Far East. I guess no demand in general so they offer great sale.
