Thank you malmostoso. I will only have cabin baggage so that is not a problem.

I got just one quick thing to add to the previous poster's answer. As a courtesy, call up LH after getting off in FRA or stop by at the counter and tell them you won't be able to take the last leg due to a last-minute change of plans. That way, they don't have to call you out at the gate. They might even be able to give your seat to someone else.

Just wondering, does if LH block the first row of their PE cabin on long haul routes for their own Senators and Hon Circles? According to expertflyer, on the specific flight and date I'm going to fly all seats in the other rows are all occupied and only bulkhead seats are available but they seem blocked. LH.com doesn't allow me to select seats on that segment and doesn't even open the seat map. Does this row open on OLCI or should I need to go to the airport early in order to secure a window or aisle seat. I am sharing the screenshot from expertflyer below.

Yes, blocked for SEN & HON.
They open up at OLCI.

No, you cannot buy directly. I believe you can buy SPG points and transfer them to M&M, but I suspect the amount of money you'd have to spend would easily cover the price of a revenue ticket.

Just spend the 14k miles in the shop or donate them, if they are about to expire.

I am finding cheap LH Economy flights via Google Flights. When I get redirected from GF to LH, I can book them, but they book into Economy Light.
I'd rather book them as Economy Basic, since I want to credit them to UA MP and Economy Light would only credit 50% PQM instead of 100% PQM.
When I try to book the exact same flight through the LH website, rates are at least double, as it's only showing me the Basic Plus fares. Basic Light and Basic are hidden.
Is there a way to "upgrade" to standard Basic with a flight in the shopping cart? I'm not seeing it.

Standard Economy fares don't include a seat reservation? Is this a joke?

With BA you don't even get seat reservation with business class unless you're Gold or Silver!

So what's the point of regular economy? $100 extra to get a checked bag?

Thank you.
Don't forget, with Eurowings you can get one way award tickets in the BASIC tariff for 11,500 miles. These can be a great deal, especially as the taxes are low on EW flights. DUS-GVA is a route I use quite a bit and it has always been much dearer since Eurowings replaced the Lufthansa Regional service. So this is a route where you actually get value for the miles. Taxes GVA-DUS are only €17 !

For example, you could go in one direction with such a route, and come back with the train. Of course, I realize that this is Germany centric, and you might not be anywhere near Germany!

Quick question - if I am booking TLS-FRA-DUB and upgrade the FRA-DUB to Business Class, will I also be able to get lounge access in TLS as well as I'm connecting to a J ticket?
