Still, while you can sometimes have a pretty good idea of when you might be able to get an op-up -- e.g., major holidays, school vacations, etc., when family travel is up and business travel is down -- all it takes is one cancelled connecting flight to free up a couple of seats in Y.
Yep. I would agree on the PE oversell. I don't fly LH that often, but it seems like PE is often booked out full and they are pretty willing to oversell it.

As a side note, I love that they print out the new seat assignment at the gate when flying out of FRA (probably MUC as well). It's great to see the little printer spool up and spit out the receipt.
