The UK seems to be on sale recently. Just a few days ago we posted a First Class deal with British Airways to North America and now today we have a good premium economy deal with Lufthansa! There is no reason to not pack your bags, so go get them ready and let’s go to Asia. Lufthansa Group is offering Premium Economy Class from UK cities to Bangkok/Asia from £591 R/T. Here are some routes that I have found:

Route (R/T)Price from Availability
London – Bangkok£591
May to June
Scattered across 2019-2020
Manchester – Bangkok£597
Scattered across 2019-2020
Edinburgh – Bangkok£629Scattered across 2019-2020
Manchester – Hong Kong£601Scattered across 2019-2020
London – Singapore£597 Scattered across 2019-2020

The above table is not an exhaustive list. It provides a minimum price guide, based on demand, prices may fluctuate. Any Intra-Europe connecting flights are high likely operated by aircraft not fitted with Premium Economy Class. Hence, you are most likely flying Economy Class on Intra-Europe route unless there is an aircraft equipment change.

Other things to note

Depending on the dates and flights selected, your flights may be operated by Austrian Airlines, Swiss or Sunexpress Germany (under LH flight number). Here are some examples:

1) Bangkok to London via Munich operated by Lufthansa and Sunexpress Germany.
