Hon Run Routing? [and other quick SEN/FTL qualification mileage runs on LX/LH/OS]

The HON Run Routing Munich - Geneve - Zurich - Vienna and back seems not to work anymore for fares around 650 Euro in Business Class.

Does anybody have similar routings with 2 transfers, preferrably to Vienna?

Thanks!

How about a massive HON run (not via VIE though):

SFO-FRA-DEL return with an LH ZLSPECE fare of USD 4.790.
That will net you 42.700 status miles as SEN and 47.445 as HON.

Actually USD4790=EUR3465. This will be a ratio of 81EUR/1000miles.

I did ATH-FRA-MNL last January and got for Z 33.800 miles (as SEN) for 2109 EUR (ratio = 62.4 EUR/1000miles) - and all RTF-offers from Germany are even better. I say: Everything with a ratio of >60 EUR / 1000 miles in not suitable for a Status-Run.
MUC-VIE with 1 transfer is actually bookable at the internet in J/Z for 572 EUR, try to book it with 2 transfers via the hotline. It should be possible.

Then I have to cancel my CRTW from NRT... 64.28 EUR per 1.000 miles... Tax & surchages included though... And the brand-new SIN C and the fully flat NZ C...

Remember:
For the new C, SQ will charge you at check-in upon presenting you StarRTW ticket. Intra-Asian routes (such as HKG-SIN) are 300 US$ extra...if you are not willing to pay, they will rebook you to the next SQ flight with the regular C.

The LX BOM C special:

IAD/BOS/JFK-ZRH-BOM for 4121$

Thats aprox >32000 status miles without status. I leave it to you to calculate the EUR/mile cost.

46€/1000 miles (as SEN) is the "good old run routing" MUC-GVA-ZRH-VIE-ZRH-GVA-MUC (currently for about 636€)

Have you ever tried to book it via phone? I did. One should try if having a bad day, the reaction of the TeleSales Agent brings a big smile on your face

Hm, if you mean the customer having a bad day, I should try this later today... but isn't TeleSales expensive in terms of TSC (usually I only pay 9€ with my TA)

Not a HON run but its possible to fly MAN-(PHL-WAS-LAS-PHX-SF0)SEA on US in Z and A for about 1700€ and it earns roughly 40.000 status miles if routed right. Unlimited stopovers also possible.

I ask myself if the whole thing would work with DUS as well, meaning DUS as beginning and final destination? Price wise?

It works, but it is a little bit more expensive. From DUS you might wish to consider CDG. To my recollection I paid in the range of 690 when doing a (seriously required) DUS - GVA - ZRH - CDG - ZRH - DUS early this year.

MUC-ZRH-LJU goes for 50 EUR/1000 HON-Miles which isn't too bad either considering that you can save two legs.
