What are Last Minute Flights?

Last minute flights are flights that are booked very close to the departure date and time of the flight. Flights are considered to be 'last minute' when they are booked a few days or weeks before departure - in some cases, flights can even be booked on the very same day of departure. Last minute flights are frequently booked by business travellers, those looking for a spontaneous get-away or those who need to travel for emergency circumstances. These types of flights can often be cheap due to airlines needing to fill empty seats on the plane as soon as possible, however, there is no guarantee that all last minute flights will be cheap.

Here at Alternative Airlines, we've prepared a handy step-by-step guide that shows you how to use our search form and apply filters to your search so you can find the perfect last minute Lufthansa flight for you.

Last Minute Flights Tips

At Alternative Airlines, we've got a handful of tips and tricks you can follow to help you search for the best last minute deals with any airline of your choice, including with Lufthansa! You'll want to consider the destinations you're open to flying to, the dates you can travel and the time of your flight.

Flexible Destinations

Being open-minded and flexible about where you're going to fly will be a great benefit if you're looking for cheap last minute Lufthansa flights. When you don't have a specific destination in mind, you can be as flexible as possible - if Paris is too expensive, why not visit the less popular tourist spots in Europe such as Sofia, Stockholm or Salzburg?

Flexible Dates

If you have room in your diary for a quick break, you can book a last minute flight today with any destination of your choice! Being spontaneous means you'll have a better chance of seeing the cheaper last minute deals. Some airlines reduce their ticket prices at the very last minute in order to fill up the aircraft.

Night Flights

Overnight flights or red eye flights aren't very popular due to the risk of feeling restless and tired after landing. This can often mean these flights are cheaper than daytime flights, so they're perfect if you're booking a last minute trip whether it's for an emergency or for leisure.
