How to Find This Deal?
The best way to search and book this fare is through swiss.com directly; because the flights are departing from Italy, you will need to change the country setting to Italy. One great thing about the SWISS website is that you can browse the Italy website in any language you want, although not every sentence is translated correctly.
Then, scroll down to the “Offers” section where you can select the departure city you want and see this deal.
You can book First Class ticket here.
You can book Business Class ticket here.
For most cities, both Business Class and First Class are available. Select the travelling class you want and start by choosing your destination.
For each destination, you can easily see the lowest round trip price per person. The passenger number should be automatically set to 2, however if you want to book more tickets, you can change it as necessary. After selecting the destination and traveller number, choose the dates for your outbound and inbound flights.
The calendar is very efficient in knowing which dates are available for this deal. Once done, click on “Search flights” to select the flights you want and book the tickets.
This deal is also available by using Google Flights or the ITA Matrix to search. However, the link still leads to swiss.com to actually book the tickets.
What is SWISS First and Business Class Like?
SWISS offers an excellent First Class product on most of their international flights operated by wide-body aircraft. Below is a trip report from Sam describing SWISS First Class experience:
For Business Class, SWISS offers staggered seating with a 1-2-1 or 2-2-1 configuration. This configuration is friendly for both passengers travelling alone or travelling in pairs.
Where Should I Credit This Ticket?
Business Class tickets book into the P class and First Class books into the A class on long-haul flights with J in the shorter ones. Credit this ticket to LATAM and Air China can give you the most miles with 200% in A, 150% in J, and 100% in P. However, all other Star Alliance frequent flyer programs are also possible to credit to. Make sure to check out where to credit for more information.
This is a great deal for those who are able to travel from Italy especially for First Class. SWISS offers one of the best First Class products in the world and with such small price difference between Business Class and First Class, I would definitely recommend choosing the latter one. This offer is valid for only a very short time and you should book fast!
Do you think this First Class price worth it? If you already booked it, which route is it and how much does it cost?
