TAP Portugal has got some incredible one-way, flat-bed Business Class fares right now between a few different western European cities and three east coast cities. Prices start around $650 from Oslo to Newark and Boston. Available travel dates span all the way from September, 2018 through May, 2019.

The fact that this fare is so widely available across the calendar, and the fact that you could mostly cover the cost with one sign up bonus (or by paying just 43k Ultimate Rewards via the Sapphire Reserve, or 42k Membership Rewards via the Business Platinum card) makes this an awesome opportunity. That’s half of your trip to Europe in a flat-bed covered.

Mileage Earning

The fare bucket is J. 

If you credit your butt-in-seat miles to United (fellow Star Alliance member) you would earn. For the $358 flight, you would earn 6,382 United miles. You’d also earn the same amount of Singapore miles. Not bad!
