Lufthansa Summer Sale

Lufthansa has announced a sale on summer fares between the US and Europe.

Savings range from about 10% to 30% for outbound travel between July 4 and August 22, and tickets must be purchased by April 8 for travel beginning at least 50 days in the future.

Other airlines recently have been offering some deeply-discounted airfares for similar routes, so this is not a particularly exciting announcement.
