Swiss and Lufthansa are once again running an awesome companion sale for flights departing from the United Kingdom. You can book your return flight in first or business class to Asia, South America, Africa, or the Middle East at really low prices. First class prices, for instance, start at only £1,399 (~€1,615)! The only requirement is that you book for at least two passengers.

Update

Warning

Since Lufthansa is phasing out more and more aircraft with a First Class cabin, we strongly recommend booking First Class flights with Swiss. This way, you dodge unpleasant surprises like downgrades.

Swiss offers a top notch first class product that won’t disappoint you. Especially the great service on board is really well. To get a better idea of what your flight could be like, check out our review:

Search & Book

According to the fare rules, you should be able to book your tickets until March 8, 2021. The offer is valid for trips commencing on or before February 7, 2022.

The availability of this deal is very good. Google Flights (instructions) mostly displays the correct prices in its calendar. Don’t forget to search for two persons, otherwise you won’t find the prices that we’re promoting here. We recommend booking directly on Swiss’ website or on Lufthansa’s website for business class flights.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:

  1. The Covid-19 Pandemic
    During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.

    Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
  2. Better Customer Service
    In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

    If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.

    This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
  3. Baggage Fees
    Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

Searching flights with Swiss gives you the advantage of a ready-made availability calendar:

    Lots of new availabilities unlocked today for FEB/2022, can only be found with ITA Matrix, not on Google Flights yet!

  2. Ed says:

    Hi,

    I have been looking into the companion sale and I just cannot get the prices to match anywhere near the numbers advertised.
    I am searching the route for any 4 week window, London or Paris to Cape Town between July 1st and September 13th

    • Felix says:

      Hi Ed!
      I quickly looked into the dates you have been looking for, and you are right. It seems like for these dates, the companion fares are already sold out or not available at all.

  3. Drake says:

    A great deal, again, but Swiss takes forever until they reveal the cancellation penalty on the First Class tickets.

  4. Sergio Gomez says:

    Good morning, would you be able to advise me of any deals in business or premium economy fares to medellin from london next year? many thanks.

    • Peer says:

      Currently, we don’t have any active deal for Medellin. Generally, good fares to Medellin are quite rare since not many airlines fly there internationally. I would, therefor, recommend to check flights to Bogota as well.

      You could always use our Telegram Bot to get notified once a new deal to the chosen destination emerges:

    I want to go to SCL in March for a time of approx 15-20 days. I am up to now very flexible with the dates. Eventually I have a companion.

    How ever I want es well to requalify for Senator this year. So besides the price the status miles are important for me as well?

    Any proposal for my situation?

    Thanks

    SU

    • Patrick says:

      Hi Sebastian! Thanks for reaching out to us🙂 At the moment, there are no deals to Santiago that we could recommend to you if you’re looking to re-qualify for M&M Senator. However, Lufthansa and Swiss have been promoting companion sales in the past that included Chile. Not sure how flexible you are regarding the airport of departure? Best thing would be to set up our bot (https://travel-dealz.eu/bot/). That way, you’ll be the first to know about a nice business or first class deals to SCL.

    Oha, nein, bei mir ist es noch als “Gültig” gekennzeichnet.

    • Peer Linder says:

      Tatsächlich. Der Artikel bei Travel-Dealz.EU stand auf abgelaufen, die Weiterleitung auf Travel-Dealz.de aber noch auf gültig. Sollte jetzt passen – danke für den Hinweis.

  7. Hans Meier says:

    Dieses Angebot scheint (leider!) abgelaufen zu sein… zumindest Tansania.

    • Peer Linder says:

      Ja, ist schon im Mai abgelaufen. Eigentlich sollte dir rechts oben im Titelbild auch “expired” angezeigt werden?

  8. Dieter Worms says:

    We are 4 guys travelling from Hamburg to Johannesburg or Capetown in Business or First
    Jan 30th – Feb. 7th, 2020. Would appreciate info about specials
    Thanks and regards Dieter

    • Patrick says:

      Hallo Dieter! Aktuell gibt es leider keine Angebote für Business oder First Class Flüge nach Südafrika ab Hamburg. Wenn ein anderer Abflughfaen in Frage kommt, ist die Auswahl vermutlich auch größer. Den Newsletter unserer deutsche Seite hast du schon abonniert? Sehr empfehlen kann ich dir auch unseren Schlagwort-Alarm: https://travel-dealz.de/bot/ Dadurch verpasst du nie mehr einen Deal, der für dich persönlich interessant ist.
