Good News If You’re Flying to Europe

Two pieces of good news for anyone who was planning on flying in business class to Europe any time soon:

The WSJ notes that business class fares to Europe from the US have dropped significantly this winter because of the huge amount of capacity available (the same reason it costs $300 round trip in coach).  Travelers with a reasonable amount of money (ie, not me) can fly on Continental round trip to London in BusinessFirst for $1900.  Delta has LAX-Paris round trips for $2000.  The above fares require a 50-day advance purchase.  Delta has also significantly lowered fares to South America. 

Secondly, British Airways just launched a promotion where anyone flying business or first class to Europe from the US will receive a minimum of 50,000 miles per round trip.  Check out the link for details.
