You can fly Lufthansa‘s long-haul leisure subsidiary Discover Airlines (fka Eurowings Discover) all the way from Frankfurt to Mombasa, Kenya in business class and back for just HUF 548,600 (~€1,449) when starting your journey in Budapest. While the airlines’ business class product can compete with Lufthansa’s mainline offerings, Star Alliance frequent flyers can only earn little miles with these tickets.
Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Lufthansa with your selected flight dates.
Flights between Budapest and Frankfurt are Lufthansa A320 services. Seating is almost the same as in economy, but an empty middle seat and complimentary food and beverage service mark the difference to flying a few rows back.
From Frankfurt, a Discover Airlines Airbus A330-300 takes you to Africa. The business class cabin is very similar to Lufthansa mainline planes, with lief-flat-seats in a 2-2-2 seating pattern.Error: 429

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:
Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.
This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.
Tickets for all flight segments are issued in booking class P. Since Discover Airlines segments give only minimal (to no) mileage, your earnings are not very high for a business class trip this long:
