Shhh…we’re having a sale


If you have a sale and no one notices, does it really count?  It seems that Continental is trying to find out.

For the past few years they’ve run a sale on their BusinessFirst cabin a couple times a year, trying to build up loads during the traditional slow periods of business travel.  They usually pair a bit of promotional effort with those sales so that they can actually sell some of the seats.  This year, however, they seem to have started the sale very quietly. 

There are fares loaded in the $1800-2000 range for travel from Newark to various European destinations in BusinessFirst.  It isn’t quite as cheap as last year, but it is still a pretty good deal for summer travel to Europe where coach tickets are often over $1000.

If you’re considering heading to Europe this summer and were hoping for the sale fares to come out, take a look now.  They may not be advertising them, but the discount fares are out there on a lot of the routes.
