Routes with F class (140,000 miles award)

Hi everyone,

I've been reading this forum for a while and learnt many interesting things - thanks to all the posters. For my first post, I have a question.

Having earned my SEN status flying entirely in Y class (I know some people here will pity me ), I'd like to use my miles to try F class on LH for once...

My "budget" is 140,000 miles from Europe (actually 210,000: 140,000 + 70,000 for companion award) and the obvious question is: which of the possible routes have F class ?

I have tried to make dummy bookings (real, not award) on the LH website to find out the answer but it is a bit cumbersome. I know obvious destinations such as JFK have F class, but I know the US well so this is not my priority. Does any flight to Canada have F ?

[Incidentally, I just found out that it has been suggested to add this kind of information to the new FAQ in this thread, but since nothing has been added so far, I'll keep this message here...]

Many thanks in advance for any help !

Thanks for introducing yourself to the forum, Zorglub.

I have been in a similar situation a few years ago and I also earned the miles in Y pretty much. I rewarded myself with a FRA-IAD and return LAX-FRA in F. It was truely awesome. I used the trip to make my way across the US and visited friends all over the country. With the dollar being so favorable to the Euro I could image you can put together a nice trip. Just a thought.

Well, 140,000 will take you to North America, South Africa or India. Why not have a trip to South Africa? Availability may be a bit difficult, but you can try.

Some of the US East coast flights are so short (e.g. JFK) that it is really a waste for go in F - at least in my opinion. My favourite routes are the true longhauls like SIN/NRT/HKG.

Why not go for a combination of F one-way and return in C (or vice versa of course). This will give you your F experience and save you some miles in your account.

I enjoy the FRA-SIN flights, as they leave in the late evening and you can enjoy the full meal service with caviar and plenty of drinks and then sleep off the alcohol by the time you get to SIN !

Thank you whiskey. It was not a big deal.

The source is from the *A thread. However, I just realized that the source there is not up to date.
May I suggest, that we use my post here as the reference thread, and our lovely moderator Kiwi Flyer can directly edit my post and the respective post here in the *A forum since he's the poster there as well.

Of course I will support Kiwi in editing my post. But I guess he's faster than me anyway

Unfortunately they allow you only "discount". Either you can take the companion award or you can mix F and C for the "mixed mileage" (90+140)/2=115. Thus you are better of with a companion award both ways in F for 210 for 2 pax than with a "mixed" for 230 for 2 pax (without companion discount). And you have the better product

Don't forget DTW!! Not really an attractive travel destination (especially in winter), but still F service from FRA.
