Why Have Holiday Business Class Fares to Europe Almost Disappeared this Year?

Flights may be filling up because of low 150-day advance-purchase fares, so airlines have no need to slash prices—so time to adjust our Upgrade Mindset.

No time like the present. He who hesitates is lost. If you see a highly discounted published fare, whether it’s for holiday travel or not, book it.

When it came to great low Business Class fares to Europe in past years, the holiday season was often the hot ticket on major airlines—as low as $1,300. You could almost set your watch by them.
