Looks like the Thanksgiving deals are out. For example, I have seen BOS-LHR rt in biz on VS and DL for $1754 ai.
I am tempted to take a trip to IST in biz for $2626 ai, but I am not sure if we will see even better deals after summer. I mean, it's kinda early to think about Thanksgiving...

Thanks for posting this.^ How do you find and become aware of such offers?

I tried to book it, the fare appears on the website alright but when you get to payment it shots up to 5,946 USD
Have you been able to book it?

There is an equivalent business fare for ~$1659 AI that books into P class. When going to the Swiss website to book this, the price doesn't change.

The Swiss fares are valid for outbound travel 28-23 Nov and return 23-28 Nov.

Update:
When playing around a bit, these fares are also available to other European destinations, such as CDG, FRA and LHR. I tried all ex NYC.

At least AF, Delta, KLM, UA, Virgin and LH have matched the C fare around the $1600-1700 mark. Not sure how good of a deal this is, since I don't know the usual C price this time of year, but it sounds good to me.

There are even better deals to be had. Example:
JFK-GVA-LCY on Nov 20
LHR-ZRH-EWR on Nov 28
$1877 ai in LX F.
But when I try to book it on the LX website, the price jumps and is adjusted to $4116.

Maybe the LX fares have not been loaded yet. The first Thanksgiving biz fares (AF, DL, KL, LH, VS) were only entered last night.

It looks like that this business sale will go on for some time, at least for *A. On united.com, the fare rules say that one has to book before SEP 24. I checked SFO - FRA and SFO - LHR. Both around 2300 in P.
