Fare Alert United Business USA to France $2,018 in attack on Delta Germany fares

United Airlines and Star Alliance carriers give a new twist today to the Business Class fare war Delta launched three days ago. United dropped Business Class ticket prices to around $2,000 to $2,200 to destinations across France. Delta has offered low fares from $1,500 to $1,700 to many Germany airports since Tuesday. This is the first sign of a Star Alliance Business Class response.

Departure Dates: late-August to March 2017 with December holiday period excluded from around Dec 8 – Jan 7.

United/Star Alliance Business Class fares are low all across the USA from select airports. These deals are even found in some small regional airports. I initially stumbled across this fare from GSP, the airport in Greenville, SC.

There are several airports in France with these low business class fares. Here is a short list of fares from the USA. I will follow up this post with a more comprehensive list of destinations in France with low fares.

  1. Bear in mind that secondary airports may offer lower fares. For example, Miami to Paris is $2,300 on TAP Portugal. Fare closer to $2,000 on United from Fort Lauderdale FLL.

  2. Unlike Delta’s Business Class fare to Germany airports at $1,600 round trip, United/Star Alliance has not lowered fares from Canada airports to France.

    LOT Polish has a $2,000 Business Class fare from Toronto YYZ. Not sure if that is a new low fare or from the major sale to Europe LOT has been running for a week.
