Each year, Air China offers special flight deals for Black Friday, which is the special shopping period following Thanksgiving.
This year they have excellent business class deals departing from Germany, to both Asia and Australia.
They are available from Frankfurt, Munich, or Dusseldorf, return, per person in business class to the following destinations:
- Taipei – €1,118 ($1,273)
- Hong Kong – €1,133 ($1,290)
- Tokyo – €1,184 ($1,348)
- Bangkok – €1,185 ($1,350)
- Seoul – €1,186 ($1,351)
- Singapore – €1,194 ($1,360)
- Beijing – €1,337 ($1,523)
- Chengdu – €1,356 ($1,544)
- Shanghai – €1,356 ($1,544)
- Sydney – €1,506 ($1,716)
- Melbourne – €1,506 ($1,716)
- Auckland – €1,506 ($1,716)
Flights will route via either Shanghai or Beijing (there’s the odd Chengdu connection available too).
If possible, try and book from Frankfurt via Shanghai as this is operated by their Airbus A350 from December, which features 1-2-1 reverse herringbone seating, rather than the 2-2-2 seating you will find on their A330 and Boeing 777 flights they operate on other German routes.
This offer can booked between 22 November and 27 November on Air China’s website, and is available for the following dates:
- 11 December 2018 – 3 January 2019
- 29 January – 8 February 2019
- 2 April – 21 April, 2019
- 28 May – 24 June,2019
- 28 June – 23 August 2019
Remember that if you are flying from Europe to a country outside China on Air China you are eligible for the free transit visa, which is a great chance to explore a new city. You all know how much I love a good stopover and to have a stopover that is not limited to <24 hours is excellent.
I highly recommend Shanghai as a great city to visit.
Now I realise Air China is no Qatar Airways QSuites, but for the Australia and New Zealand prices especially, this is amazing value for a fully flat seat.
Are you taking advantage of Air Chinas Black Friday business class deals?
