Or if you have plenty of flexibility (and are fine with long haul economy) then you could try this “Get cheap one-way long-haul Economy flights with Lufthansa’s AnyWay Travel Pass promotion” instead.
I heard about the above some time ago. I hesitated to cover it as it appears almost unusable by business travellers.
What worried me was the fact that Lufthansa gives no warning about possible visa restrictions.
Sometimes it can take longer than two days to obtain a visa and Lufthansa forgets that not everybody residing in the UK holds UK nationality. Or indeed that they reside in London where most embassies are located.
When I mentioned these points to Lufthansa in London the only comment it would make was to refer me to its T&Cs which state that travellers are responsible to ensure their documents are in order.

“Jet Airways to seek US$400m in fresh capital” via CH Aviation.14 Aug 2018
It’s worth noting that if flying LGW-JFK with Norwegian in the coming days (on one of the twice daily flights) you will get to sample the A380.

Interesting piece in Lesechos.fr about Hi-Fly’s A380.
According to a “charter specialist” Norwegian will be paying Euros 45,000 per hour to lease the A380 including insurance and crew.6 Aug 2018
rferguson – Jet Airways is fighting back against the Gulfies. It has JVs with AF/DL/KL/VS via Europe which provides pax with many routings to Europe itself and to N America.
With the payment of staff salaries I wonder if you mean Kingfisher (rather than Jet).6 Aug 2018
For the past couple of days the A380 flights have indeed been retimed.
Today, for example, flight DY 7015 is displayed on the departures board as leaving at 2105hrs.
Seemingly the inbound A380 flight DY 7016 was also retimed ex-JFK. It arrived into LGW this afternoon at around 14.30hrs.5 Aug 2018
Norwegian’s first A380 flight operated LGW-JFK yesterday.
Unfortunately the ground handling facilities weren’t up to the job.
The A380 departed LGW roughly four hours late. This meant that the departure time for the return flight JFK-LGW was delayed until 0300hrs this morning.
In the end the A380 didn’t depart JFK until almost 0500 (this morning) according to reports from the US.
Let us hope that with experience there will be better timekeeping.4 Aug 2018
Better news from Reuters today is reporting that “Jet Airways confident in prospects …”
In any case Jet Airways intends to go ahead with its new Mumbai-Manchester service from November 5. There will be five weekly flights. The route remains subject to govt approval but I can hardly see the UK govt refusing.4 Aug 2018
alainboy56 – Thank you. Here’s a report from ATW.
The lease between August 24 and September 9 will coincide nicely with the current lease to Norwegian.3 Aug 2018
In June Norwegian announced it would be raising fares.
Ryanair and Qatar Airways have warned that fares may have to rise.in reply to: Higher oil prices spell higher fares3 Aug 2018
Is Norwegian long-haul the unnamed carrier?
Stand by for an announcement concerning selected LGW-JFK flights this month !2 Aug 2018
SwissExPat – Unfortunately you wouldn’t be covered by EU261 because it’s far ahead and you are flying to EU/Switzerland with a non-EU airline.
Readers will correct me if I am wrong but it’s the operating carrier that matters and not the website the flight was booked through.in reply to: BA and EU 261 again2 Aug 2018
The A380 flight did take place although I can’t find any pics of it at Larnaca.
Today the news in France is that Air Austral will be using an A380 on various dates in August and September.
The A380 would be rostered to operate a few services between Paris CDG and La Reunion.
Could this be the Hi-Fly A380 ? More details are awaited.2 Aug 2018
The same as an LCC advertising fares ‘from £29’ so just needs a change in wording?
That sounds about right. Eurostar is a train firm (it’s majority owner being SNCF of France) which considers itself to be an airline. It will need to rewrite its ads in line with LCCs.in reply to: Eurostar ordered by ASA to change its ad1 Aug 2018
