    I thought this would be a good place and thread to post good deal premium fares available on United & Star carriers that currently exist or become offered at a later date. Happy travels.

    I will watch this thread, too, but isn't there normally one in the mileage run area? All *A good-deal premium fares, whether competitive matches, special promotions or mistakes are of interest. I got to visit IST and experience TK this way...

    Let's share knowledge and help each other find good deals and travel better.

    I will start by posting this special offer from Lufthansa which is good also on Star carriers like United. There are Easter Business class specials to Europe starting at around $2500 for travel April 1 to April 13, 2012, and tickets must be issued by February 13, 2012. These are not the best deals I have seen, but they are better than full fare busines and book into Z class. The offer can be found here. http://www.lufthansa.com/online/portal/lh/us/specials/booking?nodeid=2009503

    Seacarl, where is this type of thread on Milepoint? I figured it would be good to start a thread here specific to UA & Star carriers.

    I believe there is also a First Class variant at around $4500. Which could be of interest if you want to visit the LH FCT in FRA

    Not sure if I've found it on MP but it is surely there on FT as a thread within the MR forum

    I follow this on the other board as well, but I think it is useful for us to have more than one resource. I am disappointed that FareCompare removed the YUP fare listings: these were great for finding good deal international premium fares.

    FareCompare used to have a premium fare search feature which was great if you were looking for an international trip and were open where to go but wanted to travel in comfort at a good CPM. No idea why they removed it but its gone too.
