I am SO tempted by today’s deal! Christmas in LA anyone? And you get to travel there in one of my personal fave business class products – the new United Polaris Seat. Or if that route doesn’t suit you, Star Alliance have a whole range of Business Class fares from Paris to the US starting at just £1,100 roundtrip. BUT you need to book quick, by 4 Nov.
What: Paris CDG to many US destinations on the Star Alliance Network. My top pick is Paris CDG to Los Angeles LAX on United for £1,283/€1,489 return.
Offer: This is part of a Star Alliance offer. You can grab a great business class fare from Paris to multiple US destinations from £1,100 West Coast or £1,277 East Coast. Some of the offers are better than others, as £1,100 to East Coast on, for example, Eurowings, isn’t anything to write home about. So be careful and pick the best Business cabins! This is a great offer for UK customers, as it is so easy to get to Paris either on a cheap flight or via the Eurostar.
Availability: Travel from Paris between 21 – 29 Nov ’19, 10 – 30 Dec ’19 or 6 – 18 Apr ’20 only. Return to France 26 Nov – 4 Dec ’19, 23 Dec ’19 – 9 Jan ’20 or 6 – 18 Apr ’20 only.
Book By: 4 Nov 19.
All flights depart from Paris CDG so you will need to position there first. You can grab a flight on Easyjet from London from as little as £37.
You can book my top pick fare on United here. If you need accommodation or want to pay in GBP, it is worth checking Expedia too, where the total price may come out cheaper. To find more Star Alliance fares, use Google Flights. Select Star Alliance under the Airlines tab!
Maximum Extravagance, Minimum Cost
As mentioned, you are not going to get the same value from every fare in this Star Alliance sale. You need to make sure you are getting a good Business Class product. The key here is to making sure your itinerary is flying the right aircraft. Here are my top tips below.
If flying United, make sure you are on a 787-10 Dreamliner
The quality of United Business Class (Polaris) seats varies DRASTICALLY. For maximum luxury and comfort make sure you are in a 787-10 Dreamliner ONLY. For example, see below.
If flying United, choose a connection with a Polaris Lounge!
I LOVE the United Polaris lounges, but they are only in a couple of airports. Connect elsewhere and you will be stuck with a United Club Lounge, which is a significant step-down. United Polaris lounges are currently in:
If flying another Star Alliance airline, check the quality of their business product and aircraft
Other Star Alliance Airlines also have some good Business Class products, but not so many flying from Paris CDG. Other good products to look out for are:
