Looks like an errant PE fare (A). BLR-FRA books in F on LH.
SightseeMC and Sandy Hopper like this.

Nice! What would be sweet is if there were a way to get a FRA-MUnich transfer in there, would that allow use of FCT in FRA?

UA A fares require E class on LH coded flights (well or M). So this is most likely a well known Google flights bug (showing operating airline and the booking class as sold [on the marketing airline]).
We have seem many Air France 'first' here for this reason.

This is true for the transatlantic segment marketed by UA. However, the first segment here is unambiguously LH F.

Be interesting to see how this would credit to A3. On LH, A fares credit at 300%. So...what would the FRA-IAD end up as?

I believe you can access FCT upon arrival so long you have a same-day boarding pass. You can include FRA-MUC but it books in biz.

I see it may have to do with RBD1 chart prevailing over RBD2. Well UA pays the bill then I guess and LH shall be happy not to fix this

Well I'm in on this. BLR-FRA-EWR-CUN. First two legs on LH, final on UA. Fare class A, A, B. First flight LH flight #, FRA-EWR with a UA flight #. Pulling up the reservation on LH and I can select a seat in F for first leg and Prem Y on second. Crediting to A3, so hoping it is 300%...

These fares are available on RT basis, as flex fares too at a surcharge (free change/ cancel).
