Lufthansa sale through Aug 5

Check it out if anyone is looking. In November when my wife and her parents and I are looking its $978 RT economy Chicago Munich.

My problem is we have not ordered her car yet. I could do it tomorrow if I get a good deal. But then I won't have a guaranteed time slot by Wed Aug 5 when the sale ends. I'm not risking buying the plane ticket before getting the Welt date. I imagine the ticket price will go back up to the $1250 range where it has been since I started watching.

Is this directly through Lufthansa.com? I have my delivery date set for the 22nd of November and I am looking to purchase my airfare this week.

Yeah, United is running the deal too. I believe the biggest rule of the deal is you have to travel between August 23rd and December 23rs? I deleted the email already from United, but I think those are them. Also, there's a few days around Thanksgiving blocked out and you have to have a Sunday night stay in your dates.

I was worried about this also, but if you give BMW enough noticed you should get your first date you request, to be on the safe side, purchase your tickets and give yourself a day or two in munich, you shouldn't have a problem that way.

We arrive in Munich 8-26 for a pick up of 8-28.

Don't forget to try the corporate code BMW provides in the ED welcome kit (the one with the luggage tags). Going rates were $1200+ for us back in April/May, and the corp code got us $900 tickets.

What are the corporate codes? I don't recall seeing that.

It was posted in a previous Lufthansa thread back in June I think? If you can't find it I'll dig it up when I get home and repost it.

It's on the Lufthansa card in the ED welcome packet. You'll have to scan through it a little closer. It didn't jump out at me when I glanced over it since it's embedded in a paragraph. The only thing about that discount is that you have to arrive at and leave from Munich, they don't allow you to do open jaw schedules.

Huh...I'll look at my welcome packet from earlier this year and see what I can find. I will be flying in and out of Munich

FYI I was able to use the code to connect through Frankfurt., I had to call Lufthansa though. I was able to get a fare of $850 per person from NY-Frankfurt-Munich round trip. The code in the welcome package is USZEYAO.

The nice Lufthansa lady put the code in even before I told her what it was.

For those of you that have IPhones, try hopper. It will send you a text when the fare goes down and it will predict fares based on historical data. I think they are coming out with a droid version soon.

I made my reservations a week before this sale came out because the prices were steadily going up. Do you think I have any chance of rebooking my flight with the cheaper prices?

Depends on what fare type you booked. If it's non-refundable you might be SOL.
