Dubai: €683 SWISS & Lufthansa Premium Economy From Luxembourg

Swiss Premium Ecoomy Sitz Seite

Departing from Luxembourg, you can currently book premium economy tickets to Dubai for €683. You’d fly with Lufthansa with a short layover in Frankfurt, or with SWISS via Zurich. There’s availability until April 2023 and 2x 23 kg of luggage is included.

Info

You can enter the UAE if you are fully vaccinated or have a negative PCR test result, no older than 48 hours.

All Lufthansa tickets can be rebooked without having to pay a fee, but you will have to pay a (possibly very high) fair difference.

You can find all available dates in our calendar for trips of up to 21 days. It will then redirect you to Lufthansa‘s booking site.

The long-haul flights are operated by Lufthansa using an Airbus A330 or a Boeing 747. Meanwhile, SWISS uses a Boeing 777.

Search & Book

You can fly between September and April. Simply select your preferred dates in our calendar. For trips of over 3 weeks, you’ll have to use the calendar on Google Flights. The best option is to book on Lufthansa‘s website. You can also use SWISS‘ website – it’s literally exactly the same.

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.

Mileage

The long-haul flights are issued in booking class N, while the flights between Luxembourg and Frankfurt/Zurich are issued in booking class Y.

Warning

SWISS’ premium economy class is quite new, meaning that many mileage programs haven’t published its earning rate yet. Currently, you’re only sure to get miles for flying in SWISS’ premium economy at United MileagePlus, LATAM Pass, Air Canada Aeroplan, and Miles&More.

Ramadan

You should know that the United Arab Emirates is a Muslim country. This means that Ramadan, the month of fasting, is strictly celebrated. There are usually no drinks and no food during the day, at least not in public. When booking offers during this period, you should keep that in mind.
