Exclamation LX/*A: LAX-DME , $681 a.i., 14,398 miles @ 4.7cpm

routing: LAX-MUC-DME-MUC-LAX for 14,398 elite qualifying miles on Lufthansa or credit to a Star Alliance partner like United

sample dates: depart 11/1 , return on 11/11

bookable on orbitz and other online travel agents


this is a great fare if you need more miles to re-qualify for status as the months are dwindling down...

< 24 hour turnarounds might be available, haven't checked yet.. other possible routings might yield more miles

You can do multi city in orbitz and force < 24 hr layovers in Munich or any other European city that falls under the fare rules

Someone has to state it: Factor in the cost of the visa

Russian passport! Whoo!

On a separate note, condolences to those of you who need to suffer through getting a Visa at the consulate.

Thank you for the condolences... it was one of the more painful and expensive travel documentations I've had to go through (particularly if your travel plans change and have to reapply and pay the fee again).

Is this a K class fare? If it is, no UA miles.

No UA miles for LH operated flight, but should be OK for AC operated flight.
