LX: MIA-NRT one way; $662

Booking into a K-fare; visible on google flights for direct booking at swiss.com. Dates between now and the end of June for early-week departures. Checked baggage allowance of 2 x 23kg/50lbs

I did the unthinkable and spoke with a friend working for LH. He's scratching his head and believes that this is due to steering for the unusually empty ZRH-NRT flights.

In this case, likely "steering customer traffic to fill this particular route"

If this books into K, you'd be hard pressed to find any program to credit this to that would be real MR material. Good fare? Yeah. MR? No.

100% PQM on United, so if you're chasing status it could be useful. I do agree that you could do better than approx. 6 cpm.
