The air-fare sales for summer travel to Europe in business class are unprecedented, reflecting the drop-off in demand.
OpenSkies, the new British Airways business-class start-up, announced a sale this morning. Seats are $628 one way between New York and Paris ($565 NY-Amsterdam) in the "Biz Seat" section, where the seats have 52 inches of legroom and recline 140 degrees.
In the "BizBed" section, where the seats are fully lie-flat, fares are $1,139 one-way New York-Paris and $1,039 one-way New York-Amsterdam.
The BizSeat fares are available for travel any time; the BizBed seats fares are available for travel through Sept. 11.
I don't post fare sales unless they're extraordinary. This one, coming at the peak of the summer travel season, meets that criterion. But read the fine print for fees and other restrictions.
