checked randomly ... 9/11-9/27 is $2600; others are cheaper with combo on NW via AMS. Looks like there are plenty of ST and *A options

BOS-ORD/IAD-IAH-FRA-BOM-FRA-IAH-ORD/IAD-BOS comes out @ $2623 a/i

> 22000 BIS and 45000 EQMs on most *A programs.

an additional 3k if you add a MUC-FRA segment each way.

Tempting.

This has a min 14-night stay. Maybe that's why?

Yea, it seems to take the premium MR'ing ability out of this (not to mention I do not currently have any desire to return to BOM.

A wise person would look for great fares ex-BOM and minimize the time there!

You could always do a back-to-back, double your EQMs and not have to stay in BOM.

I was wondering if there was any update on this LH fare for DEL. I used this fare and paid $3,495 to BLR from Pittsburgh and it was a great MR deal as well. But I need something for DEL and nothing pops up. Is there a fare for SIN as well via FRA?

yeah, always the same for DEL/BOM/BLR

LH is $2800 ... CO as low as $2600

You might be able to get the UA codeshare for cheaper and dump some fuel on the way back (didn't check).

I thought fuel dumps only work for economy tickets, not business class tickets. Am i missing something?

The dump is more noticable on Y tickets, but should work on all tickets.

played with ITA and some of the fares to India yesterday ... looks like if you book a mix of UA and LH, the UA-coded intra-US segments book into A-class ... which should yield 300% on BD/M&M ... so if you route BOS/PIT or something along these lines back and forth to the other coast and then TATL and onwards to BOM/DEL or wherever there are significantly more EQM mixing UA/LH codes ... haven't tried to book these, so ITA might be wrong.

The dump does work on C tickets as far as I've found, but dropping a few hundred bucks off of a 4000$ ticket just doesn't feel the same as off of a 600$ ticket.
