Those who want could also add a stopover in Tokyo for €150 more. Availability via TYO is slightly better, but even then, only a couple of dates are available.

It'a a good find!

FYI
FRA-ICN is 744 with weird throne seat 4C
MUC-ICN is 359.

Try searching for any euro airports served by LH + SEL/TYO will give you more options.
they used to offer OP-NH on TKT-LH for the same P cls. but not anymore.. sad EUR1100 for NH R/T between EU+JPN

I booked similar as a part of EU-ASIA-NZL

Would you mind explaining how you got the ICN-FRA-MUC-BUD portion of your journey? All I see is returns via VIE. Thanks.

at first there needs to be availability on the ICN-FRA flight (check expertflyer) - then you can setup a multidestination trip BUD-NRT/NRT-ICN/ICN-FRA/FRA-BUD.
that's how I booked it on the amex travel portal.

Also, for anyone collecting M&M points, there is significant availability in D outside of these dates as well, at prices that are normally seen for P.

Let me bump this thread: it's still alive and (now) allows creative routings, like this one: BUD-ZRH-PVG-ICN & ICN-BKK-VIE-BUD for €1328

Those .....es! Thankfully the well regarded OTA Martigo still prices them out for the low price.

The less creative routings can still be booked with the airline.

There’s a second routing table also, to allow Japan:

/BETWEEN AREAS 2 AND 3 VIA SIBERIA WITH NONSTOP BETWEEN EUROPE
AND JAPAN OR KOREA/
MAP CONSTRUCTED LEFT TO RIGHT AND RIGHT TO LEFT
1. BUD-4Y/EN/LH-BRU/CGN/DUS/FRA/GVA/MUC/VIE/ZRH-4Y/EN/LH-BRU/

.
That said, whereas the original posting appears to have included stopovers, the currently published P fares, for both LH and LX, do not.

Very nice work.
Do you know if you can add a long stopover (like 21+days) in BKK ?

stopovers are not allowed anymore with this fare as jsloan mentioned a post before yours.
