As usual, the sale is stackable with the $400 AARP premium cabin discount and with the 10% Chase discount.
In fact, the sale plus two discounts brings down roundtrip first class transatlantic travel to as low as $2108.70.
Here are the two discounts:
- You have to be an AARP member and log into your account, this discount is why I pay my $12.50 to be an Associate (‘under 50’) member. Go through the AARP portal, then book your tickets, the premium cabin sale pricing will come up with the appropriate AARP discount embedded.
- Eligible Chase credit card holders can use promo code CARDOFFERU from the co-brand Visa to take 10% off.
When searching for space you’ll see results like this:
You can book business class for $1658.70.
Note that the Chase discount won’t apply to Aer Lingus flights if you should choose one of those.
