Editor’s note: The team at The Points Guy loves to travel, but now is not the time for unnecessary trips. Health officials note that the fastest way to return to normalcy is to stop coming in contact with others. That includes ceasing travel. We are publishing travel deals because we should all use this time to think about and plan our next adventures. TPG doesn’t advise booking trips for travel until the late spring or early summer — and even then be mindful of cancellation policies.

Dubai is the perfect spot to relax in the sun, especially after we’ll probably have spent much of our summer stuck indoors. Lufthansa is currently offering return flights from London (LHR) with a short stop in Frankfurt (FRA) to Dubai (DXB) from as little as £487 in premium economy.

Lufthansa’s premium economy is renowned for being a comfortable product. In his review of premium economy on the airline’s A330, TPG’s Brendan Dorsey said he considers it to be “a huge step up from economy”.

To see more about what it’s really like to fly Lufthansa, TPG U.K. recently reviewed Lufthansa in all classes from Munich to New York.

It’s worth noting while the longer leg of these itineraries is in premium economy, the short hop from London to Frankfurt is in economy, as there’s no premium option on these short-haul aircraft.

To book, head to Google Flights and set the departure airport as London (LHR) and the arrival airport as Dubai (DXB). Once you’ve found the cheapest dates, which will be highlighted in green, head to the Lufthansa website to book to make sure you are ATOL protected.
