Doesn't Austrian add $200+ for "preferred" business class single seats each way?

D Class fare...
200% credit to United, Aegean, TAP, SAS, United..
If on OS stock it's a cash basis for credit to LH M&M , not sure if you can use ITA Matrix to force it to book on UA, AA, or another carrier and potentially get 200% miles

Had to look.

Went to seatguru and it is actually a decent seat.

I was sceptical about this seat since so close to the galley, but I found out the flight attendants are mostly using the forward galley. Had a good night sleep and can recommend this seat!"

For those that need to get to BKK from Europe, in March LOT Charters has WAW-BKK for 477 EUR and WAW-SGN 547 EUR... valid as one-ways just on two dates... but can help position...
Also FRA-KUL with Condor usually is 650-700 EUR OW and credits 300% RDM to Alaska...

For anyone who needs United PQD, this fare can be plated on United (016) ticket stock; it's available on United.com. Note that the number of redeemable miles for a MileagePlus member will be much higher if booked on a non-United ticket, but those would earn 0 PQD.

Meanwhile, Miles & More participants will get much better earnings by booking this on United (2 x distance instead of 4 / €)

ETA: Other Thai airports seem to be available also; it prices out from HKT and CNX, for example.

Did anyone actually manage to book this? I did a few different combinations, and at point of sale each time was told "all seats are gone", even when it said 5-7 were available during booking.

Yup. Its gone. Let me select seats and input payment details before the dreaded "call customer service" error message came up so think I missed it by a whisker...

Congrats to all that managed to get in on it :-)
