LH LYS-FRA-BKK RT biz €1710

Probably not useful to most people, but I found this fare in mid-December. And it was bookable on the UA website under UA stock. Needed for UA 1K re-qual in my case.

CAI-ZRH-BKK could be an alternative at 1,250€ for some. Flying 4hrs in a LX/LH narrow body C might put of some people though ...

Is that a P fare or Z fare?

LX P fares are upgradeable to F with some extra miles surcharge, but not LH P fares.

although - the SWISS 777s for some reason show up on UA (while booking) as ‘SWISS Global Airlines’ and get ZERO PQDs/PQMS

That's an error. All business fares on SWISS flights earn miles, as do many Edelweiss flights.

The UA website doesn’t show it in the ‘Earnings’ section. Are you saying that’s just a ‘display error’?

Im inclined to call in and confirm.

On the UA website LH P fare is Deep Discount Business earning 200% PQM's. Plus of course 11 x fare award miles. And it shows as business class on the UA website under My Trips. Unfortunately neither P or Z fares are upgradable using UA GPU's.

Flight: LH772
Operated By Lufthansa
Aircraft: Airbus A380-800
Fare Class: Business (P)

Last year I had to call the UA premier line several times to get credited for our Swiss P fares. It took over 2 months for them to get it sorted out with LX. We Had 016 stock outbound on LX return on LH, the LH posted immediately.

so I called united and asked about the SWISS 77W zero earnings - they put me on a really lengthy hold (~25 min) and the rep came back saying she spoke to her manager and was advised that this is only a website glitch and the reservation WILL earn RDM/PQM/PQD (on the 016 stock)
