For all you UA fliers out there, LX P earns 0 miles

Definitely, I'd say they prefer if we can all be herded onto the same flight. Michelle has seen us last year

I'd be interested as well, since it's about 9k BIS miles JFK-FRA-IAH...
Might even entice me to aim for CO Plat this year...

No miles on CO... Then again, would make it even more strange if combining it with only the FRA-IAH part and flying back to Europe on a whole different itinerary...

And I'd wager rightly so on both counts.

OS has now given us their offer JFK-VIE-FRA too Will post it during the day.
If there are add-ons for the trans-atlantic fares from Hawaii, what about Canada (eg YVR)?

Doesn't CO Onepass get 50% EQM and 50% miles on LH W/S/U fares?

But none on LX P...

Yes, hence my interest in V (100%)...

Great, because I just booked LH405 (F) November 1, and LH440 (Y) November 3, using 125,000 US miles.

I took it as a high opinion of FTers, and a low opinion of gatecrashers, with the implication of gatecrashers as non-FTers. Of course I could be incorrect about this.

Thanks for all your efforts on this! It looks intriguing, and we are most definitely interested!

Oh, and I meant to say "....and I am real excited, thanks so much for putting in all the work to arrange this wonderful DO!"

Congrats. Appears you got the last of the award seats on both flights, at least in the two premium classes.

Will definitely do the NAmerican events, but likely pass on the TATL component. Is May 15th still the anticipated launch date for bookings? I seem to recall Tommy mentioning this date in LA last week (even being "under the influence" of two wicked American Pale Ales of intense hoppiness and 6%+ alcohol).

Thanks but, I actually only got economy (I used "Y" to refer to that, but for LH, does "Y" connote business class as opposed to coach/economy?) for the return on LH440. I was kind of bummed that I needed to use a 125,000 first class award, yet only ended up with First or Business on one of the two flights. So, to clarify, I got FIRST on LH405, and ECONOMY on LH440.

CO just downgraded CO47 on Nov 3 from FRA to IAH to a 764 (from a lie flat 777). So those thinking of C047 as an alternate to LH440 please note.
