It’s Condor season. It comes each Spring–and it’s the time Alaskans can fly non-stop in 9-10 hours to Europe. That’s a big deal, considering it’s a 22-hour trip in each direction through the Lower 48! I took the photo above on the tarmac at the Frankfurt airport.
Condor flies nonstop three times each week (Tue., Sat., Sun.) from Anchorage to Frankfurt and once a week (Thu.) from Fairbanks to Frankfurt.
I just spent a minute checking prices on their website: www.condor.com . From Anchorage to Frankfurt, you can fly June 1-12 for $913 roundtrip, including all taxes and fees. From Fairbanks? Fly between June 10-17 for as little as $692 roundtrip, all-in.
A couple of weeks ago I ran the numbers on what other airlines charge–about $1,500 roundtrip. Hmmm–which to choose. HAHAHAAA.
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: Condor.com
