right. I wonder if those rules indicate that this will be around for a while. Or if it's just some sort of typo

Not true for all airlines. LH will let you book up to 361 Days :-)
LLC Air Asia is the longest I've seen at 370 days.
LH say's: Valid dates are 1 hour from now through the next 361 days.

But nice thread and nice to see that *A matched ST.
Would also be interested to figure out how to book flights for early 2019 since fare rules allow this in general.

Thanks for the post.
1. How long is the length of stay?
2. Does this allow stopovers if choosing LX or OS?
3. What are the fees for changes/cancellation?
4. I also hope that SJC is covered. There's a direct flight from FRA to SJC, and I hope LH doesn't kill it.

Answer for question number 2
I will check if it’s possible to stay for more than 24 hours, but this is just something I found in a few minutes.

Is there any suggestion for flying UA 777-300 with the new Polaris Business class seats out of FRA?

I can't get this to price with an inbound in March/early April and the outbound in the November/December time range. Is there something in the fare rules about a maximum length of stay?

This is not a *A fare but the ATI+ airlines (UA/AC/LH/OS/LX/SN) only. TP, LO and SK are not a part of it and have their own (rather more attractive) fares.

Can you share the more attractive fares?

I've only seen amazing fares with TP. Haven't seen anything good with SK for awhile

Question

Good to see that the TP connection appears to finally have been upgraded to mostly include lie-flat seats instead of angled seats on LIS-MIA.
But these fares...
(1) often have a long stopover in LIS
(2) depart at 6AM if they don't have a stopover, thus in my opinion require a night at a hotel or staying at CPH over night
(3) still have angled seats on MIA-LIS on some flights on the way back
(4) Are more in the area of +1300$ from what I am seeing atm.

Not sure how they are "rather more attractive" especially in a thread on Germany - USA/CAN except for 200% mileage earnings since they book in J?
