Few things are more rewarding than receiving a surprise upgrade to business-class on an international flight (thats a solid 6-10 hours of pampering and bliss). However, times are tough, and with airlines charging extra for in-flight comforts, these coveted seats are more expensive than ever, and complimentary upgrades have become a distant memory. Before shelling out top-dollar for first-class fares to Europe, consider flying OpenSkies, the business-class carrier that provides direct service from New York to Paris. This spring, the upscale airline (owned by British Airways) is offering tempting rates on Biz-class seats from just $655 each way for travel through May 30 (when purchasing tickets by February 28).
Even after taxes are factored in, the total comes out to $1,428 round-trip half the cost of the average first-class ticket on other carriers, and only $500 more than most economy fares (which arent always non-stop). In addition to these low fares, OpenSkies is launching a second route to Paris from Washington D.C. beginning May 3 with competitive rates starting from $815 each way.
