Six Ways to Book Free Business Class Flights to Europe
Business Class is awesome. You can relax on your overnight flight to Europe with ample legroom, you’ll get a nice meal, all the alcohol you want, and a seat that turns into a bed when you’re ready to get some sleep. A couple hours before landing in Europe, you’re served breakfast with tea or coffee so you’ll be ready to kickstart your day. Here’s six fantastic airlines you can fly to Europe using miles and points!
Singapore Airlines flies an A380 between New York (JFK) and Frankfurt (FRA). You can book these massive seats on one of world’s best airlines for 60,000 KrisFlyer miles one-way. How to do you get KrisFlyer miles? Glad you asked. You can transfer points from Chase, American Express, Citi, and Starwood Preferred Guest to Singapore KrisFlyer.
Lufthansa has a special place in my heart. They consistently offer great service and are operationally fantastic. Their Business Cabin is the older 2-2-2- configuration but they make up for it with great service.
There’s several ways to book these transatlantic flights. For example, 70,000 United miles, 55,000 Aeroplan miles, or 52,500 Lufthansa miles one-way.
Air Canada & Swiss Air
Air Canada and Swiss Air have new Business Class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration on many of their updated jets. They offer a great route network to dozens of European cities. It costs the same number of miles to book Air Canada & Swiss award flights as Lufthansa awards. 70,000 United miles, 55,000 Aeroplan miles, or 52,500 Lufthansa/Swiss miles. Note that United will charge the least in additional taxes and fees, typically under $100.
You can book Air France and KLM Business Class award flights to Europe for just 62,500 FlyingBlue miles! Flying Blue is Air France’s frequent flyer program. Just create a free Flying Blue account, search for the award you want, and then transfer points from Chase, American Express, Citi, or SPG!
