An Economy Class tidet
to Europe is $536.
A Lufthansa -
Excursion Wet is $382.

And that's not the only way
we save you money.

You can fly round trip to Frankfurt from New York
at an Economy fare of $536. But if you make it a 17

to 28-day excursion, your round-trip fare is only
$382. Make it a 29 to 45-day excursion and your
round-trip Lufthansa fare drops to $312.
And that isn't the only way Lufthansa can save
you money on a European holiday.
Look at what as little as $377 buys you: a round-
trip flight aboard Lufthansa, an Avis car with un-
limited free mileage, and all your overnight accom-
modations for every night of your two - week stay.
This bargain is Lufthansa's famous Europacar Fly &
Drive tours—and you have many different European
itineraries to choose from.
Lufthansa gives you even more—your choice
of departure date, the most non-stop or direct flights
to Germany from New York, Philadelphia, Boston,
Chicago, Los Angeles, and Montreal. And direct
Lufthansa connections from Frankfurt to Tel Aviv. If
you want Kosher meals served to you aboard
Lufthansa flights, you simply request them when you

make your reservation.
See your own travel agent. He's the expert and
he'll give you even more reasons why more business
and vacation travelers prefer Lufthansa.
