Hi LH Lurkers,

Welcome! Great to see you here collecting feedback. As a new FTer myself, here's my story:
  • Based in FRA
  • Mostly TATL flights for work, almost always in S or W. Very very seldom in C.
  • Very seldom TATL flights for pleasure, preferred Z.
  • FTL the last 4 years or so (~70,000 miles p.a. from S/W since joining my current company), very recent SEN promotion

Current insights (aka thinly veiled complaints)
  • overrun lounges in FRA - admittedly, my first SEN lounge visit won't be for another two days
  • non-existent op-ups from S/W to Z -once in about 40 TATL flights in the past as FTL, low hopes of change after viewing this thread
  • expensive mileage upgrade from standard eco to business

I've always been satisfied with the LH experience as a semi-FTL. Now that I fly TATL more often, the above list has me close to convinced that I should book with UA starting 1 Jan 2013. *G is easier to reach, which means connecting flights in NA are always op-up as I understand, and mileage upgrades are much more affordable.

Cheers
Low End
