Euro-Bargains on Condor’s Euro-Express

In Adventure, Airfares, Alaska Travelgram by scott

Let’s do a little math, shall we? You can fly nonstop from Anchorage to Frankfurt in about nine hours on Condor. Fly over on June 1, returning June 12. The cost? $965 roundtrip, all-in (including all taxes and fees).
How does that stack up with other airlines? First, they all fly through the Lower 48. That means it takes about 20 hours in each direction. FUN! Here’s a little rundown for the same dates:
Delta Air Lines: $1,522 rt all-in
Continental: $1,550 rt all-in
American Airlines: $1,498 rt all-in
I didn’t bother checking USAir, but you get the idea.
To or from Fairbanks, the fare is even lower. Fly Fairbanks-Frankfurt nonstop on June 10, returning on June 17 for just $757 roundtrip, all-in. That’s cheaper than flying to L.A. !
Condor flies Boeing 767s–and the planes just got refurbished in a three-class configuration. The bulk of the seats (217) are in economy. But there’s now a “premium economy” which offers about six inches of extra legroom, in addition to its Comfort Class.
Premium economy (pictured here) also includes:
a. Greater backrest recline.
b. Cocktail service with a snack
c. Free drinks served with meals
d. Premium Menu
e. Amenity bag
f. Blankets and extra large pillow
Remember–fly with Condor and you could be in Europe in less than 10 hours. Check the website for the lowest fares:
