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.
