How to deal with AE search engine to find F award?

Luftansa F award.

I actually see AE availability but only in business. Checked on Luftansa website and don’t see them offering F to/from Canada. None of the possible AE awards I pulled up in various searches offered a route thru the US where F is apparently offered.

Any suggestions re how to deal with AE search engine to find F award would be appreciated.

But, to answer the question, LH F is typically only available at T-14 days.

No, I'm pretty sure you would have to book it as two one-ways (one using mkt fare and one using classic award). They also have restrictions on changes, so you can't change a mkt fare to a classic award or vice verse.

Not all LH aircrafts flying TATL have an F cabin. LH470/471, for example, is operated by a 744 which only features J, PY and Y cabins. Hence no F availability.

They have killed all of the F cabins for flights out of Toronto. All A330s to Munich had their F cabins removed.

You are left with a double connect, that is only available a T-14 days, with a connection in Chicago/Newark/JFK/Washington/Boston. For example, if you wanted a YYZ-CDG flight, you would need to fly YYZ-ORD-FRA-CDG.
ffsim and longtimeflyin like this.

Yes, I knew that from reading FT and played with various dates in the next 14 days. No F, just J. I was trying to find a quick way to isolate F possibilities but perhaps there isnít a way. Thanks.

@DaveTO is correct — you need to look at flying through a US city at T-14... I went through this process in April. Search segment-by-segment, you’ll see LH F availability on AE. You can even leverage ExpertFlyer alerts if you’re a subscriber.
