Continental BusinessFirst sale to Europe

George Hobica, September 12, 2007
Fares from Washington DC:
    Continental has some great fares in their comfy BusinessFirst cabin to Europe for holiday travel (guess this is when the suits don't fly, so they have to fill those seats). Most of the deals are from Newark, with a few from Houston as well.

    Travel outbound Nov. 18-24, 2007 and return Nov. 22-24, 2007 or Nov. 27-28, 2007.

    For an additional $100 each way, fares are available for:
    Travel outbound Dec. 17, 2007 - Jan. 4, 2008 and return Dec. 22, 2007 - Jan. 9, 2008.

    Considering that you'll pay a lot for mere economy travel during these peak periods, it may end up costing not much more to fly in comfort.

    Newark to London, for example, is $560 each way over Thanksgiving and $660 each way for travel over the winter holidays, plus tax.

    Maybe we're going blind researching all these fares, but we didn't see a last day to purchase listed on Continental's site.
