Nonstop over-the-top with Condor Air #PremiumClass

In Adventure, Airfares by scott

Are you headed to Europe this summer? Do you collect Alaska Airlines miles? Then check out Condor Air, which resumes its nonstop flights from Anchorage, Fairbanks and Whitehorse to Frankfurt, Germany tomorrow, on May 21. Yes, I took that shot (above) of the 767 touching down. 

The flight on May 21 will be the FIRST Condor flight in more than two years!

“Premium Class” is the secret sauce on Condor’s nonstops. A little more legroom, more baggage allowance and a few extra goodies. 

It costs more. Your economy ticket this summer can range from $450-$600 one-way. On June 29, a “premium” ticket costs $929 one-way. 

Condor continues to upgrade its fleet of 767s that flies to Anchorage. The three-class configuration has 18 seats in Business Class and 35 seats in Premium Class. Unfortunately, the 767s they’re flying DO NOT have the fancy new paint job. We’ll have to wait for the A330s next year. 

Here’s the rundown on Condor’s Premium Class:

a. More legroom (15cm more than economy)
b. Increased baggage allowance (10kg carry-on and 32kg checked bags)
c. Free drinks with meals.
d.  Nine-inch seatback monitor for movies.
e. Premium menu.
f. Footrests and headrests.
g. Blankets and oversized pillows.
h. Separate check-in
i. “Wellbeing set” with extra goodies.
j. Headsets.
k. 125 percent Elite Qualifying Miles for Alaska Air Mileage Plan members. Roundtrip ANC-FRA-ANC = 11,650 miles.

Of course, prices change all the time, but when I priced out the Premium seats, it was about $1700 roundtrip Anchorage-Frankfurt-Anchorage.
