Business class flights to Europe from four U.S. cities just dropped as low as $1,910 round-trip.
These low fares are primarily run and operated by United, but the one especially low fare is aboard Condor Air from Seattle (SEA) to Frankfurt (FRA) for just $1,910 round-trip. For those unfamiliar with the airline, check out our review of its business class product. Condor is a part of Alaska's Mileage Plus program, which has some pretty sweet award opportunities.
When it comes to United Polaris, the product varies by route and plane so be sure to check out TPG's ultimate guide. For example, the Newark (EWR) to Porto (OPO) route features a 2-2 configuration which United Premier 1k holder Zach Honig says is a good option when traveling with a companion in his ranking of United business class seats ranked from best to worst.
