If you are making a booking on united.com, then it will almost certainly be issued on United stock.

Whether it will be K class on Aegean or not depends on other factors you haven't specified - such as whether the flight is being sold under an A3 or UA flightcode, for example.

Soory - I forgot to mention that it's beeing sold as an A3 flight.
I can't remember seeing an UA / A3 codeshare - therefore I was wondering if UA can issue A3 tickets on 016 stock...

They can, since that is irrelevant from codeshares. United could even issue tickets for airlines outside of the alliance. Normally that would not happen (or only at full fare), but technically it is possible.

Booking on united would almost certainly get the ticket issued by them. If it works at all - I have attempted booking LH/OS/LX tickets through them and it always fails for me at some point in the process.

Is there any availability in S class? You could simply wait a little until the P bucket is empty, and purchase in S?

I successfully booked LH/LX flights on united.com in the past. Has been impossible for some time now as only high priced booking classes are shown for LH/LX - probably a wish from LH.

All my flights were issued on 016 ticket stock. In case of A3, please remember that you cannot use upgrade coupons for these tickets.

There's a bit of discussion of this in the United forum because ticketing on UA stock is the only way to get PQDs for non-UA flights. But yes it is LH's wish. LH now requires most of their discount fares to be ticketed on LH stock.

Thanks for that info, it's really enlightening. I often booked LH routings on UA.com because it was able to put together itineraries that LH.com refused to show and because you could select the exact booking class that you wanted. I did wonder why I stopped being able to do this at some point last year so that does explain it. UA.com doesn't even price up anything other that full fare in economy and business classes now (probably due to LH changing the fare rules for D class fares from fully changeable and refundable last year to non-changeable and non-refundable whatsoever this year!).
