For up to four travelers (and possibly more), FCF’s research team has discovered an opportunity to save up to 300,000 miles when compared to normal / everyday prices traveling between the U.S. and Europe OR save $7,517 / 73% if you don’t have any miles and want to pay in cash.

Downside: Taxes can be $1,640+ – yet relatively paltry when you think about normal First Class fares otherwise often running $11,000+.

Please note that partner award space for First Class is often only available within 14 days of departure.

Sample Savings via Starwood’s (now Marriott Points) points-to-miles transfer partnership with Asiana Miles: New York to Munich for 100,000 Asiana miles and it costs even less if you have a  Starwood/Marriott account: only 80,000 (now 240,000 Marriott Points) Starpoints. United charges 120,000 miles for Business Class.

In other words, if you have a Starwood/Marriott card and book via Asiana Airlines, as opposed to earning miles via mainstream ways, you’re getting First Class for less than Business.

More here on getting free or low-cost add-on flights (based on availability) from around the U.S. to the hub (New York) AND / OR free or low-cost flights from the destination (Frankfurt and Munich) to all over Europe.

Disclaimer:

Everybody knows how frequently airfares change (some estimates claim that there are up to 500,000 fare changes daily). Because that’s a few too many for First Class Flyer to keep up with, FCF cannot guarantee that all fares discussed will be available when you go to make a booking. Also, for the sake of quick and easy “executive summary” format, all fare rules and restrictions can’t possibly be included. Fares quoted usually include the average taxes and fees for the routes in the chart.
