MUC-ZRH-GVA-ZRH-MUC on LX.
Alternatively MS C or F fares to Asia.

On Business Saver provided you can get it. It might work out cheaper to add segments to another country.

Book the current US Air business offer to the US: two transfers allowed on your way to the US and then inside the US you can do unlimited transfer to your final destination in first class All for 1600 or so.

Just make sure you book the A332 across the pond: those have the new nice C seat. The A333 have the older version.

Wow- US Airways is seriously inexpensive! I can fly VCE/FRA/JFK (stop)/YVR(stop)/FRA/VCE for less than the cost of VCE/FRA/VCE! (Economy not business for clarification).
