Bahrain, Dammam, Kuwait: €1,077 Lufthansa Business Class from Helsinki

Lufthansa Business Class Sitz

Star Alliance member Lufthansa has started to sell discounted business class to the Middle East with departure from Helsinki. You can reach Kuwait, Dammam, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain for just under €1,100 with a change of planes in Frankfurt.

Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Lufthansa’s website with your preselected flight dates. You can also use Lufthansa’s best price search for that.

Long-haul flights are operated by Lufthansa’s Airbus A330 fleet. You can expect the same business class like in all other Lufthansa planes: Lie-Flat-Seats in a 2-2-2 seating pattern. While Lufthansa serves all three destinations non-stop from Frankfurt, some flights to Dammam require an additional stop in Riyadh. Similar to that, some flights to Bahrain have a stop in Kuwait.

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 and Book

The fares rules don’t give away an expiration date for these prices, they are available until sold out or withdrawn by the airline. You need to stay at least six days (or one night from Saturday to Sunday) at your destination to get the cheapest price. Availabilities to all destinations are pretty decent until October 2023.

You can find additional flight dates with Google Flights or Lufthansa’s best price search. Since we recommend buying tickets directly on Lufthansa’s website, the latter might be the most convenient way.

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 airline 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 of receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

    This especially applies to 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.
