Lufthansa Offers "Europe For 99 €", But No Seats

Mon Jan 17, 2011 7:37 am

The LH website clearly offers European flights for 99 €, specifically Munich-London which my wife has been trying to book for 2 weeks. She could not find any date where that offer actually is available. I checked the next 3 month, there are no seats for that rate.

Shouldn't the offer be removed if there are no seats? Is it legal to lure people onto the site with an offer that isn't available?

Maybe they are slow in updating the page of the offers.
I have recently booked a round trip for two from FRA to LHR and got the 99 € offer
without problem. Availabilty for mid March was pretty good.
Haven´t checked since then though.

Maybe you try O/W flights or flights with a too short or no weekend stayover.
If you don't click specific dates, you get a whole spreadsheet with cheap and more expenive dates combinations.
I actually think the LH website is pretty good in that. It can always be possible that certain flights are never available for 99 euro, for instance because they sell well enough for regular prices.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

From the thread title I was hoping this would be a 99euro standing-room-only transatlantic!

Minimum stay is according the ticket rules?
At least a night Saturday-Sunday included in your dates?
