Nairobi, Kenya: €1,382 Lufthansa Business Class from Budapest

Lufthansa Business Class Sitz

With Star Alliance member Lufthansa, you can currently get inexpensive business class trips to Kenya. With departure from Budapest, you can secure return flights to Nairobi for HUF 548,900 (~€1,298). These flights are available from November 2022, with good availability in January and March 2023.

Info

With Lufthansa, you can rebook all tickets without a rebooking fee. In addition to the travel dates, you can also change the route, but you’ll always have to pay the difference between the old and the new flight price.

Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Lufthansa with your preselected flight dates. You can also check what OTAs have to offer, as they sell these tickets up to €90 cheaper.

First, you’ll fly the feeder flight to Frankfurt. Then, you’ll fly on to Nairobi with Lufthansa onboard an Airbus A340.

If you don’t like surprises, you’ll be on the safe side with Lufthansa in one aspect: all planes have the exact same seats. That, however, will no longer be the case when Lufthansa receives its first Boeing 777 planes with the new business class. Many of our readers may have already experienced the current business class. Generally, Travel-Dealz writers and readers are not big fans of the Lufthansa business class, even though it is definitely not bad. One reason for that is that the service is too inconsistent: From extremely friendly and quick to unfriendly and slow – everything is possible with Lufthansa, even in business class.

Search & Book

The fare rules don’t specify an expiration date, so these tickets can expire anytime. You need to stay six days or a night from Saturday to Sunday.

The best way to search dates is to use our availability calendar above, which will take you to Lufthansa’s website. Their website also has a best price search, although similarly to Google Flights, you’d need to trick with the duration. We recommend booking through Lufthansa, although you can save money by booking through an online travel agency using the Travel-Dealz flight search.

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.
