Half price first class fares to Europe

Does anybody know when they have a sale on first class fares to Europe? I am looking for buy one get one free. My destination is Malaga Spain.

I have never seen a "buy one get one free" first class to Europe. I have seen discounted business class fares to Europe on American, Continental etc. I think I have seen the discounted fares mostly for winter travel.

With an American Express Platinum Card, you can get Business Class 2 for 1 on several airlines.And I know people who have applied for the card and then cancelled it after the trip.They thought it was worth the $300 fee to get the card, as the International Airline Program is not too restrictive.They have programs with Air France,Continental,Lufthansa,Swiss,Alitalia,Austri an, and Virgin Atlantic.Some of the features and prgrams expire Aug 31 of this year.A consolidator would be your best best for and reduced First Class tickets.Good Luck!

There are often discounted business class fares to Europe. There's no specific time when these are offered, and there are usually advance purchase and mininum stay requirements.

I've never seen a buy one get one free first class offer except through the Amex Plat 2 for 1 program. To qualify you need to purchase one full fare first class ticket and the companion pays taxes only. Fee is now $395 a year for the card. You can call the Plat travel desk without having the card. Tell them you're thinking of upgrading for this benefit and they'll provide you with a quote.

Check BEFORE you do the AMEX.

DL has a sale on Business Class for this summer. Runs about $2200 a person (give or take) Full fare on DL for these same flights runs between %6,000 and $7,000.... So it would be cheaper to buy two tickets then to do the Amex Deal...

I could swear I responded earlier to this thread, but it's not here, so...

The Amex 2-4-1 deal seems only to work on full fare business or first class tickets, i.e., the giant ones. You'll be better off looking for two "I" class fares (some airlines have other designations.)

A poster on flyertalk.com has pointed out that American Airlines has added some "I" fares on Travelocity but they're not yet bookable on aa.com; looks like under $2K from NYC, other origins to follow. Season appears to be July 1 - Sept. early.
