Looking at the amounts of trip reports on the 748i in F by bloggers on award tickets, I would assume LH releases them to *A FFPs just as they do for other aircraft types.

LH opens up F award on the FRA-IAD. It will depend on the specific day as on occasion they will sell a lot of paid F and will hold back any award F seats until the last minute. Just be aware that they do sub a 744 for this route as well.

DEN-FRA in F

I am flying this route in LH 9 Jan...currently have a mileage plus saver award in C. When should I expect F availability to open up? Is this a route that would typically have decent award F availability?

Will LH release F award on A380 with F6?

T-7 for LH 441 IAH-FRA.

Currently F6. If it remains that way, will LH release seats on the A380? I have read they rarely do... what are my chances?

thanks!

Not my flight.... mine is F6. so my question is, if it remains F6 up T-24hours, does LH release seats?

If you are talking about the 14th, I only see F2. So I would doubt it.

probably you are using UA award mileage ticket. The chances are NIL. LH hardly releases any F award inventory on IAH-FRA route.

No F award available with M&M miles on 14th when it's F2 A2, but available on 15th (F5 A5) and 16th (F6 A6).

I think the OP is looking for *A award seats as his profile shows UA 1K.

LH441 is showing no F seats available 15 December on ANA. The availability is still F5/A5. Since we are past T-7, will LH release the *A seats at T-3 ot T-2 ??

Probably and soon IAD will lose the 748i and a new destination will be announced. Crossing my fingers it is going to be ORD.

Sorry for the confusion.... I am looking at the 16th.... I must have been a little sleepy last night when writing this!

and, yes, I am currently on a UA award ticket and am in F IAH-DFW-FRA but am looking to get on the nonstop IAH-FRA.

Yes, I realised that. I was merely pointing out that there was't any F award availability on 14th even for M&M members.

So it's not quite T-7 yet and there may be some hope.
