The time is now to start thinking about Summer tickets to Europe if you are in the market. Last week I mentioned how good availability was for Business Class seats on the LOT 787 Dreamliner TO Europe. Another new and promising option to hop across the pond is on Austrian Airlines featuring their brand new Business Class seat.
The new Austrian Airlines Business Class seats are fully flat and look like an excellent product. In the summer from the US, Austrian is scheduled to have the new Business Class seats for flights from Vienna to Chicago, Washington Dulles and JFK. A one way Business Class award ticket runs 50,000 miles on United.
After I bit of tinkering around, I can report availability over the summer is pretty darn good for up to 4 business class seats per flight from Vienna to the three US destination cities. Austrian Airlines naturally has good intra-Europe flights for connections depending on where you want to end up.
Unlike the LOT 787 which is showing a lot of space in one direction, availability on Austrian is great in both directions.
JFK on the 777
Washington Dulles on the 767
Chicago O’Hare on the 767
The bottom line
I booked this new Business Class product for a summer trip to the Hungarian Formula One Grand Prix this year in Budapest. This, along with the LOT 787 Dreamliner are excellent opportunities to get to Europe this summer in style. Act now before space fills up!
