Business Class Specials to Europe and the US

Three pieces of business class travel news:

–British Airways is guaranteeing 50,000 frequent flyer miles for all transatlantic flights booked in business or first class (that’s Club World or First if you’re keeping score) through the rest of the year.  There’s no limit to how many bonuses you can get (which is nice if, for God knows what reason, you’re commuting to London).

–Icelandair is offering roundtrip business class (that’s Saga class, to you) flights from the US to Iceland for $1,059 round trip.  Flights to Europe start at $1,318 round trip, which is the cheapest business class ticket I’ve ever seen to Europe.  Before you get too excited, Icelandair’s business class is roughly on par with AirTran’s.

–Speaking of AirTran (whom I’m not knocking at all), they’ve got a business class sale from Atlanta right now.  Round trips in business class to the west coast are $498.  Yes, you read that correctly.


  1. In Iqaluit, Nunavut, a First Air Boeing 727-100 waited 3 hours for connecting passengers. That is the time it would take to get to its destination. Thats service, or crazieness!
