Same flight back from Bangalore?

Title should say same "aircraft", not same "flight" - unable to edit.

I have to spend some miles in the next weeks so am planning an F award. Bangalore has good F availability. Can I do LH754 landing BLR at 01.55am and then take LH755 straight back to FRA at 3.40am or can I expect any issues with doing that i.e. time in immigration? I have a valid India visa. Obviously won't have any checked baggage.

Why don't you fly somewhere where you actually want to go and spend some time there?
Flying to India and back just to fly in First doesn't make much sense IMHO... However this is of course Flyertalk...

Each to his or her own, of course.
But your trip won't be exactly free - so you might want to keep your eyes open for availavility in F, or even C (), to somewhere where you can use your miles and CASH to get somewhere nice for a weekend.

The new "mileage bargains" include business-class flights to South Africa, Korea and Brazil - at those rates your miles should stretch to taking a friend....
