LUFTHANSA (0345 737747) has cut the price of its Young Europe Special air pass, which allows anyone under 25 (or full-time students under 27) to fly around Europe for a flat fare of pounds 49 per sector. The deal is valid as far away as Istanbul and St Petersburg, but you have to change planes in Germany on the way, so a return trip to Istanbul would use up four coupons, ie, pounds 196 plus any local departure tax. The scheme starts on 1 June; all travel must be completed by 15 September.
