Book UA F, or other non-scamchargeable J. Once the trip has started, look for LH F, pay $100 fee and change. No additional scamcharges if you change after the trip has started.

book a non-scamchargeable business class, or UA F. You can change once travel starts (since its your last leg anyway) and scamcharges are not recalculated, and you ll end up on LH F

There is no point is 'securing' LH/AC Y - and paying dearly for it.

Thanks echino and rankourabu. That's what I thought.

Am I OK on MPM to DPS and with two stops after DPS?

Thanks!

Looks like I'm over by about 750 miles on the TPAC. Does this mean I'm SOL?

Can you go via TPE to DPS on BR instead of ICN? You could take a quick LCC rt. flight to HKG, but ICN would be missed.
All depends what locale is more important to you.
Otherwise buy a cheap ticket to DPS and back

How does one pull this off if the legs I am looking to change out is the UA-F first ones?

I am looking to exchange my outbound TATL, (TPE) final desination via OZ-F,UA-F EWR-BRU-FRA (LH-C), to any LH-F flights T-14.

Thanks for any ideas, or if I am SOL.

Bangkok is your point of turnaround since it's the furthest from your origin

you can't just define Frankfurt as your pot just because you want to take first class more often

you are therefore way over mpm

I'm new to this still, and really only very familiar with TALT routing still. But I'd be VERY surprised if you can do a stop in FRA with that itin. You might be able to stop in FRA if you continued around and returned TALT, but I'll let those who know more chime in here.

Not sure why you cross-posted this in two threads, but not possible with Aeroplan. US Dividend Miles is your solution.

How is this itin possible with US miles? I get the C1-C2-C3 and back, but then to do it again?

USDM agents have some pretty serious problems with geography, so you shouldn't have too much trouble convincing them that Fran Furt is a city in Southeast Asia, so it's entirely reasonable to get there and back via Ban Kok and Pe King...

That's because they don't have maps

According to Miss Teen USA anyways.
