Lufthansa currently has a super cheap business class special for flights to Ecuador. With departures from Basel, Zurich, or Geneva, you can get round trip flights to Quito and Guayaquil starting at only CHF 777 (~€799).
The Business Flex fare is also interesting for a surcharge of only CHF 150 (~€154) in total. You can then cancel the flights at any time free of charge (there may be a booking fee of around €30). Alternatively, there is the Business Basic Plus fare for just CHF 50 (~€51) surcharge (i.e. CHF 25 (~€26) per direction). This can then be canceled for a fee of CHF 310 (~€319).
