In addition to once again upsetting me with the horrendously lurid and bizarre promotional imagery for it, Air France is currently running a Business Class sale from the UK, with long-haul options available for as little as £1,199 return.
The prices are genuinely good value for Business Class travel, but not quite up there with the astonishing value you can get by “repositioning” your starting point outside the UK. However, unless you’re dead-set on a “free” weekend in Europe, the obvious benefit is that these are all flights from London Heathrow.
To take advantage of the Air France sale rates, you need to book on or before 23 November 2016.
So what’s available?
(All prices are Business Class return, from London Heathrow)
- Accra at £1,720
- Beijing at £1,759
- Dakar at £ 1,699
- Havana at £1,460
- Panama City at £1,479
- Punta Cana at £1,249
- Riyadh at £1,199
- Tehran at £1,299
- Tokyo at £1,899
- Windhoek at £2,148
Some great prices there, not least Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) at £1249 and Cuba sub-£1500. While not quite up there with the Etihads or Qatars (and few are), the new Air France Business Class product is pretty good, and in my view one of the better offerings from the European flag carriers.
