This offer from the Russian carrier Aeroflot is definitely an interesting one. The SkyTeam member is selling tickets for flights in Business Class from Paris to New Delhi for prices starting at only €1,312.
The trip will take you from Paris to Aeroflot’s hub in Moskow on board of an Airbus A321. From Russia to Delhi, the carrier will operate an Airbus A330. Layover times at Sheremetyevo International Airport are rather short, and as an EU citizen, you shouldn’t need a visa, as long as you don’t leave the airport.
Aeroflot Business Class
Now, Aeroflot isn’t an airline that most people are familiar with. But that doesn’t mean the carrier isn’t offering a decent product. While you’ll be sitting in recliner seats (like the ones you might know from North American First Class) on your way from Paris to Moscow, the flight to India will offer angled lie-flat seats and a full service Business Class cabin.

Minimum stay requirements are 3 days or the night from Saturday to Sunday while your last stopover must commence no later than 175 after your departure from Paris.
