One of the stand-out offers of 2014 so far has been the KLM £999 Business Class return sale back in August. The good news is, it’s back. £999 Business Class return flights (and in fact we found them as low as £995) are currently available from London Heathrow to a wide-range of long-haul destinations, including Dubai, Cape Town, Rio, Shanghai and Tokyo.
The new KLM Business Class is great. £999 for a return flight to all of the available destinations is seriously good value, and to some of the further flung destinations it’s little short of outstanding.
The key issue with this sale, however, is that while the headline prices are fantastic, the travel window is almost comically tight. You need to book before 8 December 2014, which is fair enough. However, you need to travel from 21 December 2014 until 3 January 2014. Yes, that’s right, you have a two week travel window, starting later this month.
However, if you are still holding out for a last-minute Christmas/New Year bargain, then you could do a lot worse than this sale. The full list of destinations is as follows:
- Abu Dhabi
- Cape Town
- Rio de Janeiro
- Sao Paulo
Just to prove the cheap Business Class fares do exist, here’s an example dummy booking we did for those who might fancy a Shinto-flavoured Christmas and New Year in Japan:
And here’s a dummy booking for those who might fancy the festive season in the warmer climes of South Africa:
So yes, this is a sale where you will have to panic-buy/-book/-plan it slightly, but rest assured that, if you can make it work for you, it’s a great deal. Bear in mind you can also, depending on your destination, combine it with the “up to 33% off” Hilton winter sale, should you wish.
