Mini Mileage Run needed - 2500mls ex DRS

Hi there,
while my SEN status last until Feb 2009, I'd like to ensure that I have at least silver status afterwards. This year I only need another 2500 miles to achieve the 35.000 miles. Could you give me some hints to achieve that?

What I like to do:
Fly from DRS to somewhere and return the same day.
Fly in week 51 on a weekday.
Of course as cheap as possible ;-)

Any hints for me? I tried DRS-FRA-DUB-FRA-DRS which is usually a good way to get the miles but on LH homepage I only the booking T or L ;-(
Can you recommend a web site where I can choose the the booking class to ensure I get enough miles?

Thanks for your help in advance!
Alex.

You don't need any Mileage Run.

M&M allows you a soft landing, that means you will drop down to FTL in 02/2009. You FTL status will last till 02/2011.

Really? Is that written anywhere?
That is great news, so I don't need to worry about my status until 2010!

Thanks for that Info...

Talking HON soft landing

Hi, I also thought this is only in for HONs. Would be nice to be verified.

BTW, one Ready-To-Fly should give you 2500 Mile + 25%.

Well, I was sure about this. However, as I can't find anything written about this right now and chumbawumba seems to have other info, I wouldn't count on my statement. Better call the SEN hotline.

Sorry, if it was wrong...

Can't find the reference on the website, but with M&M you have a soft landing: SEN -> FTL 2 yrs -> blue.

Just happened to a colleague.

Hm, sounds great, but who knows if this is still in place in 2009

Maybe I do one Ready-to-fly just to make sure... So these are not are not booked in T or L class, right?!

Hi,

intra german it books into s, intraeuropean into w-so full miles.
intercontinental it also books into w-so only 50%.
so one rtf via muc or fra should do you good.

cheers

Hi,
RTF is no good as I have to stay for at least on night...
Found some connections to CDG via FRA/DUS for about 250. I guess it won't get any cheaper than that, right?

Does anyone have a good website to book a special class, e.g. W instead of T or L?
