Unhappy Lufthansa First Class is Blocked!

I can't find any availability, whatsoever, in O (First) on LH. It appears to have been blocked again.

Strange. I'll delete. I tried for days to/from multiple gateways.

First of all, LH has always* been available only 14 days in advance so "searching for weeks" doesn't do you any good (* with the exception of some tricks which no longer work).

Secondly, you cannot expect a specific route to have availability on any particular day. Given the 14-day window any specific route, especially with not much competition, is unlikely to give you anything, maybe with the exception of the next 24-48 departures.

For example, ORD-FRA, FRA-ORD, MUC-BOM etc are not too hard. You can pretty much forget about FRA-SFO, FRA-MIA and similar.

OP may not be entirely incorrect.

At the least, LH F availability seems to be significantly down compared to pre-website maintenance. The website "glitch" is persisting where F routes show up as J pricing.

Intentional on Avianca's part?

It's quite confusing … looking at HKG - MUC / FRA on August 14.

United / ANA shows availability,
Lifemiles shows Business in First Class Results

… altough it would offer HKG - ICN (AI C) - FRA (LH F) one day later

Is the glitch fixed - and any manual/screenshot etc workaround known to work?

I noticed they change the login user to be only your LM# now (no more user name allowed).

It seems that availability is limited. On United.com you can book this flight almost daily. Through Life Miles not possible in all classes! I was looking for F.

Have also noted limited availability on LM (as compared to UA/AE) compared with a few months ago... as well, this J class showing up as F class for F pricing glitch is blocking true F flights from showing up.

On the bright side, at least J is plentiful.

Quick update: The flights did show as available on LM around 5 days later.

Is ANA F access now being blocked? I can't seem to find anything on IAD/ORD/JFK-NRT. Also not seeing any USA-FRA LH F segments...
