NotiFlyr does a great job tracking airfare deals, and just sent out a huge scoop: United Airlines and Lufthansa have a $1500 roundtrip fare in business class between the U.S. and Europe. This allows travel between much of the U.S. and most of the places you’ll go in Europe as long as you begin travel by the end of February.
You can fly out of cities including Albuquerque; Austin; Boston; Charleston; Chicago; Cleveland; Dallas; Denver; Houston; Indianapolis; Kansas City; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; Miami; Nashville; New Orleans; Philadelphia; Phoenix; Pittsburgh; Portland; Raleigh; Richmond; San Francisco; Seattle; Washington DC – and many more.
And you can travel to places including Amsterdam; Athens; Barcelona; Berlin; Bilbao; Brussels; Copenhagen; Dubrovnik; Frankfurt; Geneva; Helsinki; Krakow; London; Madrid; Milan; Munich; Naples; Oslo; Paris; Riga; Rome; Vienna; Zagreb; Zurich – and many more.
What’s striking about this sale is it isn’t limited to other airline hubs to send a message. You can fly out of United hubs like Chicago, Houston, and San Francisco. And you can fly into Lufthansa hubs like Frankfurt and Munich. Or you can travel between smaller cities in the U.S. and Europe, too.
Amazingly this is a 50 cent fare in each direction plus fuel surcharges and taxes. In fact, the ‘surcharges’ represent nearly the entire cost of the ticket.

While TAP Air Portugal may be the most generous offering 200% of flown miles on United P fares, Air Canada Aeroplan might be the best place to credit this fare with 150% of flown miles. Crediting a United-issued ticket to MileagePlus and you’ll only earn miles based on the price paid.
This fare is definitely another win for NotiFlyr which is probably the best airfare notification service and one that many folks find worth the cost (and they do not pay me to say so).
