We always look for smaller airports closer to—and more convenient—for our subscribers. But a good portion of our best business class flight deals are from larger airports—think New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Denver, Chicago, Miami, etc. That’s just where most of the best flights deals are … Here’s how we use the larger airport deals to our advantage to save thousands on business class airfare.
Passenger was travelling from Nashville to Krakow, Poland. A "straight search" showed a total fare of $4,351.00 USD w/ 2 Stops
TOTAL = $4,351.00 USD
Now let's look at separate tickets from Nashville to JFK, then JFK to Krakow
Nashville to JFK (Business) - $495.00 USD
JFK to Krakow Business Class - $2,244.00 USD
Total for both tickets = $2,739.00 USD. That's a savings of $1,612.00. Not bad considering it's the same number of stops on (arguably) better airlines with better seats!
BUT WAIT: We Can Also Save An ADDITIONAL $268.00 Flying Economy on the short flight from Nashville to JFK.
