Want to head to Europe sometime in the next year? Well, you’re in luck, because we’ve found availability on hundreds of nonstop business class flights leaving from New York (JFK) to destinations all over Europe, including Frankfurt, Vienna, Lisbon, Warsaw, and more.
Here’s what you need to know!
Fare Deal — Details
We’ve found oodles of award availability on Star Alliance routes to Europe from New York, including travel on partners such as Lufthansa, SWISS, TAP Air Portugal, and LOT Polish Airlines. All of these carriers offer lie-flat seats, a must when crossing the Atlantic. Even better, we’ve found up to 9 seats at a time on these flights.
- Class: Business
- Routes: New York (JFK) to Lisbon (LIS), Frankfurt (FRA), Warsaw (WAW), Vienna (VIE), Zurich (ZRH), Munich (MUC), Istanbul (IST) and Brussels (BRU).
- Dates: July 2023 to February 2024
- Rates: 35,000 miles one-way
Your best option for finding availability is via Seats.aero. It’s free to use for close-in award availability and will show you all economy, business, and first class seats that are available. The paid version also gives you results up to a year out.
These flights can be booked via a variety of partners, including Avianca Lifemiles, which will charge just 35,000 miles one-way for the New York (JFK) to Lisbon (LIS) route in business. This can be seen in the screenshot above.
Best Ways To Book
You won’t find much cheaper than 35,000 miles one-way for a business class flight, which makes Avianca LifeMiles a great option to use. Thanks to partnerships with Citi ThankYou Rewards, American Express Membership Rewards, and Capital One Miles, it’s also relatively easy to earn Avianca LifeMiles.
If you’re not looking to fly to Portugal or you don’t have Avianca LifeMiles, you can also take advantage of the transfer bonus from Chase to Aeroplan to drop your total cost to just 59,000 points one-way. You can also transfer Amex Membership Rewards, Capital One miles, and Bilt Rewards points to Aeroplan.Hot Tip:

We almost never find such widespread availability on flights to Europe, especially not to such a huge range of destinations.
If you’re interested in booking, do so now before they disappear!
