Three months ago I wrote that it’s the golden age of air travel with cheap fares all over the world. Most of those fares have been in economy, with sub-$400 roundtrips to Europe and Asia with amazing flash sales.
I certainly prefer travel in business class, and readers have been asking for those deals, recently I’ve highlighted West Coast to several European cities from $2000 roundtrip, business class to several Asian destinations for $1954, West Coast to Africa from $2146 roundtrip, United business to Asia from $1700 roundtrip, Business class to Europe $409 one-way and Singapore Airlines Business Class to Europe or Asia for Less Than $2000 roundtrip. This last was my favorite deal of all.
Airlines are more aggressively discounting business class than before, not just economy, even if most of the eye-popping sales are in coach (and even if $1600 is of course still a lot of money). When I can buy paid business class for not substantially more than I ‘expect’ to ‘usually’ pay for economy that’s a good deal.
And via God Save the Points Delta is offering roundtrip business class fares between Toronto, Calgary, or Vancouver and Tokyo from $1580 for summer travel.
The fare is widely available. And at this price it can make sense to position yourself to Canada.
Here’s a sample itinerary:
Delta fare basis ZHW0ZPDB has the following key rules:
- Transpacific travel must be on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday in each direction
- Outbound must be by September 30
- 6 month maximum stay
- $100 per stopover allowed (one in each direction)
- Tickets must be issued by June 5, but the fare could be pulled before then
- Non-refundable with a CAD 450.00 change fee
This fare is a wonderful opportunity to get ‘lost’ in this most amazing city.
