Lufthansa Business Class Sitz A340

With Star Alliance members Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines, you can currently get inexpensive business class trips to Nairobi in Kenya. With departure from Denmark, you can secure return flights to the nation’s capital starting at DKK 10,375 (~€1,391). A change of plane in either Brussels or Frankfurt is necessary to get this fare. These flights are available from September 2024 through March 2025.

Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates for €1,400 (~DKK 10,445) or less, for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Lufthansa or Brussels Airlines with your preselected flight dates.

First, you’ll fly the feeder flight to Frankfurt. Then, you’ll fly on to Nairobi with Lufthansa onboard an Airbus A340 or A330. Both planes feature a similar business class cabin, with lie-flat-seats in a 2-2-2.

Most itineraries require you to fly one segment with Brussels Airlines. The Belgian carrier features a similar business class product to Lufthansa’s on their Airbus A330 fleet.

Generally, Travel-Dealz writers and readers are not big fans of the Lufthansa business class, even though it is definitely not bad. One reason for that is that the service is too inconsistent: From extremely friendly and quick to unfriendly and slow – everything is possible with Lufthansa, even in business class. Regarding the seats, they are mostly fine, though not really on-par with the competition anymore. That’s why the airline is now slowly installing their new Allegris seats.

The fare rules say the following:

  • Expiration date: Unknown
  • Travel Period: Two dates in June and a lot of dates between late August 2024 and March 2025.
  • Minimum Stay: 8 days
  • Maximum Stay: 12 months

The best way to search for dates is to use our availability calendar above, which will take you to Lufthansa’s website. Their website also has a best price search, although similarly to Google Flights, you’d need to fiddle with the duration of your stay to find the best results. We recommend booking through Lufthansa.

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.

Miles & Points

The tickets are issued in booking class P. For a round trip to Nairobi with a transfer in Frankfurt both ways, the credit is as follows:

  • 17,388 CV Points on Vistara Club Vistara
  • 10,868 Miles on Singapore KrisFlyer
  • 9,350 Points on SAS EuroBonus
  • 8,694 Award Miles + 1,738 PQP on United MileagePlus

SAS and its loyalty program EuroBonus will exit the Star Alliance on August 31, 2024. You have to be back in Copenhagen by that day to earn the EuroBonus points mentioned above.
