Changes for Waitlist
 
Now LH seems to have gone bonkers for good; my TA just send me the news that, effective Dec 1, only the following booking classes can be waitlisted:

Y, B, M, G, J, C und F

No more A, no more D; great move, punks... 🤬

Even in cases of IROPS? That would be complete BS

Wow, this is a serious issue and one that will make me move a number of my flights elsewhere.

Maybe temprorarly?
As soon they will find out that it force lot of business to go to other carriers, maybe will change it back?
Anyway, I think that competitor carriers will be more than happy if it really come in force.

Waiting list for Y, J and F is joke anyway.
I never saw any flight, where J or F was 0 availibility.

I must be missing something as I'm struggling to find dates when these aren't available.

Which engine have you been using ?
Matrix/Google only comes up with LH “F”, corresponding with what my t a is telling me ...

Expertflyer and LH.com itself show wide availability. Not for A, but business even P and Z are widely available to any date I checked.
Maybe some specific route is very busy?

Nope, look for any flights to the US specifically in „A“ or „C“, since, when no avalability in „A“, you can downgrade to business only using „C“ when on a *A RTW ticket, which has been exactly my problem most recently...

I am seeing lots of A availability to the US. Not sure what you’re talking about..

Find new T A. ;)

Indeed there will be no more waitlist for many classes
 
Got yesterday official confirmation as follows:
From 1 December 2019: change to waiting list requests

Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, SWISS and Brussels Airlines are harmonising their waiting list process. From 1 December 2019, a waiting list booking will only be possible in the following booking classes:
  • Economy Class: Y, B, M
  • Premium Economy Class: G
  • Business Class: J, C
  • First Class: F
Existing waiting list bookings in other booking classes will still be honoured after 1 December 2019.

[Edit: Never mind! This got moved to a different thread with more context. I see now that it's neither of the things I thought.]

Raul_R Are those the booking classes from which you're now allowed to waitlist an upgrade to a higher class, or are those the booking classes that a waitlisted upgrade will clear into?
