Flying from the West Coast to Europe in business class is nearly always an expensive affair, even when you trying to position to the East Coast.

That’s why we were so excited to spot fares for just over $2,200 round-trip — and you’ll even be flying with Condor’s newest seats! Let’s take a look at the details.

Fare Details

You’ll be able to fly from San Francisco (SFO) to Germany with decent hours and few stops courtesy of both Condor and WestJet. Anyone who’s flown from California to Europe knows that it’s a trek, so having business class on the way over makes a huge difference.

  • Class: Business
  • Routes: San Francisco (SFO) to Frankfurt (FRA), Berlin (BER)
  • Dates: April; August to September
  • Rates: As low as $2,214

We’ve found flights from San Francisco (SFO) to Frankfurt (FRA).

You can also fly to Berlin (BER) if that’s more your speed, but it’s going to cost you a little more (in both time and money).

Still, at these rates, it’s easy to convince yourself to go.

Best Ways To Book

For this deal, you’ll need to head over to Google Flights. Your best bet is to book directly through the airline, which means you’ll have a prime opportunity to utilize a favorite of ours: The Platinum Card® from American Express. This will rack up your points balance with 5x Membership Rewards points for flights booked directly with the airline or via (up to $500,000 per year, then 1x).

Still, if you choose to book through a third-party online travel agency (OTA), we recommend using a card like the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, which offers 3x Ultimate Rewards points on all travel purchases and excellent travel insurance.

Final Thoughts

Finding business class flights to Europe from the West Coast isn’t difficult. After all, there are tons of flights per day from popular airports in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

What is tremendously difficult is finding seats (especially ones that will lie-flat) for no less than $3,000 round-trip. We’ve done the work for you, so you can snap them up.

If you’re interested — book quickly!
