I’m really wondering just how much fun I could have over a few days in Europe come mid-January. Why? Because Condor, a low cost carrier based in Germany, is offering up an All You Can Fly deal (web page is in German only), rather similar to the one jetBlue had earlier this year. Maybe it is because of the relationship both carriers have with Lufthansa but it isn’t hard to see the similarities in the schemes. The best part about it for folks in Europe is that the price is truly all-inclusive – no extra taxes or fees – and it is only €299. Even at today’s exchange rates that is about 25% less than the jetBlue AYCJ deal was.
There is, of course, the usual fine print. The pass must be reserved by 18 December and all bookings (except for the first and the last) must be round-trip. Also, the pass only applies to the carrier’s short and medium haul routes, so no crossing the Atlantic. Still, access to the carrier’s route network throughout most of Europe, the Canary Islands and maybe Eastern Africa seems like a pretty good deal to me. There is a 72-hour advance booking requirement, just like the jetBlue deal. And these flights are actually eligible to earn frequent flyer points in the Miles+More program. Not too shabby.
I would truly love to take advantage of this deal. It is incredibly tempting. Alas, I think it is not meant to be. But that’s not going to stop me from looking at their route map and schedules to see what king of fun I could have. Wishful thinking never hurt anyone, right?
