It looks like all the airlines are favouring Stockholm and first-class fares around £2k at the moment. Today’s offer is from Stockholm to either Johannesburg (South Africa) or Sao Paulo (Brazil) in Swiss Airlines First Class from £2,211.
What: Swiss Airlines First Class limited-time special fares from Stockholm to Johannesburg or Sao Paulo for around £2,200 – £2,300.
Offer: These special fares offer great value a good first-class offering (according to Skytrax, Swiss thrashes British Airways!). For comparison, the same flight to Joburg starting from London is over £4,300! AND you get to experience the best First Class Lounge in the world! (Skytrax, 2019). More on that to come.
Availability: Travel on or before 31 May 2020, with a minimum trip of 6 days and a maximum trip of 3 months. Stopovers are not permitted.
Book By: 13 October 2019
You will need to book and fly from Stockholm. You will, therefore, need to position yourself there first, but there should be plenty of cheap flights from the UK. All flights route through Zurich, but you cannot stopover.
Maximum Extravagance, Minimum Cost
Fully experience the best First Class lounge in the world
Factor in a long transfer through Zurich to make the most of the Swiss First Class lounge. If you land in Terminal E or B you will get a chauffeur drive over! The lounge then has a great selection of champagne and wine, a la carte fine dining AND you can get a private bedroom with en-suite with a terrace looking onto the runway! Certainly on my bucket list.
Look into what aircraft you are getting
If you are on a Boeing 777-300 you will be fine as this has a relatively new First Class seat. If on the A340, Swiss haven’t quite finished refurbishing all five planes and if you get an old one, you may think you have accidentally time-travelled. Check out the seatmap in Economy on Expertflyer, if you can see seats 45A,B,J & K then it should be a new craft.
