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...
