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 on Thursday, May 18. Yes, I took that shot (above) of the 767 touching down. 

“Premium Class” (pictured, right) 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 $720-$1,250 roundtrip. Tickets in  “premium” start at  $1,620 roundtrip. 

Condor has upgraded its fleet of 767s that flies to Anchorage, Fairbanks and Whitehorse. But next year, we’ll be looking for the iconic “candy-striped” A330s The 767’s three-class configuration has 18 seats in Business Class and 35 seats in Premium Class. The Business Class features lie-flat seating and big monitors for everyone, plus a lovely pre-departure beverage (pictured, below).  


On Condor’s first flight (May 18), Business Class seats are listed for $1,870 one-way (fares are subject to change without notice).

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.

Condor‘s flights operate twice a week (Thursdays and Saturdays) in May and early June, increasing to 3x weekly (Thur/Sat/Sun) on June 15. The Thursday flight touches down in Fairbanks to pick up travelers before continuing over-the-top to Frankfurt.

Condor’s Frankfurt hub is your gateway to more than 100 destinations throughout Europe. In addition to the connecting flights, Condor offers a “Rail and Fly” program, linking with the Deutsche Bahn rail network.
