These are only some of the available low fare routes. There are many more low fare business class routes, including several airports in Germany. Delta has had Business Class routes to Germany on sale for several days now.

Countries not in this Delta Business Class sale
UK, France, Netherlands, Italy and Spain are the main standouts from this Delta/Skyteam Business Class sale. Three of those places are SkyTeam home countries for Air France, KLM and Alitalia. The UK is a cash cow and no deals have been there all week. American and Delta started this Business Class fare war several days ago when Delta/Skyteam put all of Spain on sale for $1,600 from some USA airports and American/Oneworld put Italy on sale.

Delta is a pit bull this week, eating into United hub traffic and blasting the USA with low business class fares to Germany, home territory for Lufthansa. With low Business Class fares from Delta hitting American/Iberia in Spain, American/Oneworld hit Skyteam with low $1,600 Business Class tickets all over Italy. That deal started a frenzy in the blogosphere due to an ongoing AARP $400 discount on British Airways business class, reducing ticket prices for transatlantic business class across the USA to Europe for around $1,100 to $1,200 round trip.
This is still an evolving Business Class situation since United Airlines stayed out of the Business Class fare war – up until yesterday. United now has $2,000 Business Class fares from around the USA to airports across France, home base for Air France.
