We’re seeing several transatlantic deals for under $400 round-trip, and even some deals to Africa for around $500, but you’re probably here for cheap, lie-flat business class fares. We’re seeing round-trip, some nonstop, deals to cities like Lisbon (LIS), Porto (OPO) and Barcelona (BCN) for $1,615 using the promo code SPRING20.

We first discovered the deals from New York to Lisbon at Traveling For Miles.

You can search for the deals directly on TAP’s site, but I found it to be clunky and unreliable. I ran a Google Flights search to find availability and then entered the dates along with the promo code on the website to find the cheapest fares. The deals are available from March 1 to March 30, 2020, and again from April 21 to May 31, 2020.

Many of the tickets are on TAP’s new Airbus A330-900neo, which TPG’s Brendan Dorsey reviewed last spring. Remember that TAP is a member of Star Alliance, and you’ll earn miles based on the distance flown and a percentage of the fare class.

To search, head to TAP’s site or Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline and don’t forget to use the promo code SPRING20.
