the why of this routing


I had been made aware of a special promotion with Lufthansa that happens usually once a year, but not always and not from all airports : the "Fly with me" offer.

If you buy one ticket in business, the second one is free of charge.
As I go every year to Jordan with my mother, this was the perfect occasion to go twice for the price of one trip :)

For this promotion, the airport of departure was only BRU. The price to AMM from BRU was at 750€, meaning 375€ per person. Super good deal.

I added flights with SN from BSL to BRU and since they were re-opening the line after Covid, there was a special business class offer for 180€ per person. Bringing the ticket to Jordan to 555€  per person in Business.

Later on SN decided to cancel the flights, and we were rebooked through FRA, not bad, it meant more miles :) The only downside was an overnight in BRU on the way to Jordan, paid with my Marriott Rewards.

Conclusion

For the flight I used the same ratings as for the EAP FRA the day before, it was the same.

BRU was super easy, really top notch.

FRA is busy but all went well.

The Loft is a super nice place to wait, specially when it is so empty.

Thanks for reading!
