Thanks again!
No. LH will charge their pricing, which is the same 30k miles one way. LH passes along carrier surcharges, while United does not. That's why the difference in the cash cost, and LH won't "match" United. Note that there are no fuel surcharges (thus nothing for LH to charge) on United flights.

That would be a BA flight. AA doesn't charge big carrier surcharges, but they do pass them along. So BA has them (very high) as does IB (moderate). AA miles can be used on AA, Airberlin, and Finnair flights to Europe without any carrier surcharges.
