Dubai: €979 Lufthansa & Swiss Business Class from Amsterdam

Lufthansa Business Class Sitze

Star Alliance carriers Swiss and Lufthansa are currently offering business class flights from Amsterdam to Dubai starting at €979. There’s availability at this price from June until October 2022 as well as in January 2023, with lounge access and priority services included in this offer. A change of planes in Frankfurt or Zurich is necessary in both directions.

Info

These tickets are not refundable if you cancel them. To change flight dates, you’d need to pay the fare difference, but at least the rebooking fee is waived.

Our availability shows all possible round trips at the lowest fare for travel durations up to 28 days. You can select an out- and inbound flight and will be forwarded to Lufthansa’s website with pre-selected flight dates. Both Lufthansa and Swiss tickets are sold on this site.

Please note that from April 2 to May 2, 2022, the United Arab Emirates celebrate the fasting month of Ramadan. During this time, public services in Dubai are severely limited.

Both Lufthansa and Swiss use Airbus A330-300 aircraft on the flights between Europe and the United Arab Emirates.

Premium Cabins

There is no question that Lufthansa’s and SWISS’ premium cabins are among the upper half worldwide. Our author Dennis tried both business class products – you can get a glimpse of what you can expect here:

Search & Book

Sadly, we cannot tell you when this deal is about to expire. According to the fare rules, tickets are on sale for trips with a minimum stay of six days. You may find almost daily availabilities from June through October 2022. A quick look at our availability calendar above will tell you more. According to Lufthansa’s best price search, you can even find flights for that fare until February 2023.

To find additional flight dates, we recommend consulting Google Flights. Possible savings when booking with an online travel agency are €20 or less, so we recommend booking on Lufthansa’s or Swiss’ website.

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.

    How many KrisFlyer Elite (!) Miles am I going to earn for this DXB-itinerary? Is it the same like award miles (8,344 (LX) / 8,092 (LH)) or is there any difference?
