LH Business Saver Fare Class?

Anyone know into which class an intra-European LH Business Saver would book?

Pretty much any Business Fare Class is possible (except J maybe).
So P, Z, D, C and J(I have never seen saver J fares though). You can, however, check the fare class while booking on the website. (There is a button labled „show fare class“)

That feature disappears when you try to book an open jaw itin, though.

So, I have a theory: Swiss Business Class Fares P, Z and D are all available as Saver Options, C and J, however are not. I have only seen C and J Flex options. Please try to prove me wrong!

(I can usually stop there on my way home). While they do charge a fee of 30-90.- Swiss francs, in my opinion, especially for complex routings that are not bookable online, it is worth it not to have to explain the whole routing to an agent over the phone, but face to face. (And you get free drinks and chocolate there!)
Will they be able to issue a *A RTW there? Would be a nice addition to an experience if I ever decide to do one

E: Reserved for Premium Economy
G: Reserved for Premium Economy
N: Discount Premium Economy (Used for Non-Rev Economy Flights on Swiss only!)

R: Premium Economy Class Award (Used for Non-Rev Business Flights on Swiss only!)
Listed in the first post.

Since Swiss will also be introducing Premium Economy: Does anybody know if R will become Y+ Award space and what the Non-Rev Business booking class will be replaced with if so?

Non rev ID/AD booking classes will use the X/R/I classes also used for FFP awards.

No more exclusive booking class for non revs then?
Same as LH and OS in that case.
