The annual cycle of business class fare sales for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend has started once again. Tickets much be purchased in the next 10 days or so and all three alliances are participating, as are the non-allied carriers. Fares start around $1600, depending on the city pairs. SkyTeam is running about $100-200 higher than the others on many the dates and cities I checked.
The available city pairs this year seem more restrictive than in previous years and only London is really cheap as a destination. And with the Star Alliance carriers the flights book into P, the new discount business class which isn’t upgradable and earns limited points in most programs. Still, these are pretty good fares to Europe if that is your thing for late November.

I booked US Airways LGA-BHX and LGW-LGA in Business for under $1600 for the thanksgiving timeframe.
P may earn less points, but on UA MP…it counts 150% toward elite qualification
Founf JFK-LHR $1452 w/ stops using Alitalia code.
The AA fares at least have been out there for months
Not for nothing, but JoeSentMe reported on all of this stuff back in early August…and the Christmas/New Year fares, too.
Not for nothing, but I’m rarely offering “breaking” news and I’m quite fine with that. 😉
