Sorry, we could not find an answer to your question on the Lufthansa website.
I forgot that LH decided to forget about 'Lady Bee'.
Perhaps we should ask Denisa Tudorica what she did with 1 million miles.

We are capping the dinner at 100 and the tours at 75.
I notice that the night at the Westin NYC Times Square is not listed on that page, any particular reason ? Or am I just being too inquisitive ?

Frankfurt daytime events, 02-Nov-2010
Frankfurt dinner, 02-Nov-2010
These two events are listed under "Edit registration data" but not under "Register for the event". The Westin TS party appears under both.

Sorry if it's already been cleared, but what does this mean? Will i have to pay full fares if i decide to join after this deadline? I might just join, i really want to but some practical issues is preventing me from deciding right now

How sure are you about joining? If its better than 50/50 please sign up and decide asap.
If you don't use the group fare, regular fares on LH ex Europe are about 470++/3750SEK++ ex FRA/ARN in W (the lowest class still available on LH440/03NOV and LH491/07NOV for regular sales), the group fare is 227++ ex FRA in W

Frequent Traveler Awards dinner

I signed up for the Frequent Traveler Awards dinner, and there was nowhere to confirm dietary restrictions (I'm a vegetarian). However I did make my restrictions known as an allergy on the mega do profile section. (It's a life and death situation. If I eat meat, an animal must die.) Will dietary restrictions be transmitted to the hotel for the Awards dinner?


TIA

perhaps the above question should go in the ft awards dinner thread in community buzz, in case there are other vegetarians who might sign up for the awards dinner only & might have the question question re: the veggie alternative. since technically they're 2 dif events, data might not get switched from one to the other. i figure, if by chance i get served seafood (which i actually do have an allergy to), i can always send it back & the hotel will sort something out for me. things like vegetarians, seafood allergies, are not unheard of in the hotel industry

re: payment etc. oliver, in checking my cc, the charter payment cleared/has been paid. i updated - did the edit data function - last weekend to include all the events. like others it took me a bit of time to realize that's where the full list was. i also provided cc info for the tatl flights & updated the address to be jfk (did a screen shot of it saying info received/being processed). in checking, the tatl payment hasn't hit my account yet. i attributed that to the cc's being sent over in a batch to lh so haven't been worried. but if for some reason it didn't transmit properly, let me know & i'll send it again or call patti directly.

cheers.

Yes -- we will make sure that there are vegetarian friendly meals available at dinner.

Another question of interest - will these be considered BIS miles for million miler qualification (on either CO or UA)? At some point CO & UA will consolidate these, and if it is BIS on CO but not UA, since CO metal, would want to credit to CO instead of UA.
Can one of the organizers confirm whether the full 4031 miles will be credited to UA without having to fly back to IAH?

And the question about BIS million miler credit for UA vs. CO?

No worries. We will try to linger over our ribs. I do have to be back at the Sheraton at 3 PM, however, and since my brother will probably have to leave at 2 PM, I would be willing to share a cab back to the hotel when we finish.
