Increased availability this weekend on LH

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to tell you that this weekend FRA is opening availability in the lower revenue fare classes on most flights this Fri-Mon. It won't be publicly communicated until tonight in most cases.

If you are looking to book this weekend is a good time.


Best,
Michelle

Is this for bookings this weekend for flights anytime, or for flights this weekend?

Tell that. I can't find a single Z seat for Sunday the 1st of March from anywhere on the Westcoast back to Germany on LH metal. Only way would be flying through ORD, but no thanks to that..

I understood it as for flights this weekend....

Feb is really a great month for cheap fares, especially in Y. ^

Seems to be quite the opposite. Weekend flights cost more.
