LH booking class S on SK metal

So just booked a trip to LIS via MUC on lufthansa.com
Really cheap ticket booked in booking class S (LH Low Economy). But on both of the SK legs, it books into SK S which is economy extra. Seat map showing row 3+4 and I’m in 3A.

LH6247 Operated by Scandinavian Airlines Economy (S)
Seat 03A


LH6032 Operated by Scandinavian Airlines Economy (S)
Seat 04A

Have anyone experienced this before? Will SK actually honor the S booking class?

Well, posting it here with dates of departure etc. will certainly reduce your chances of ending up in Y+

Haha mabye
Even though I think it is highley unlikley. The same thing happens at all the LH S class bookings I have tried. Looks like a system flaw

Old problem, some systems fail to recognise the correct map for a codeshare and plonk you in the wrong cabin. Once checkin commences this will be rectified.

More about codeshares and mappings here: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/miles...ncomplete.html

That said SK often only has one row C, one Y and the rest M, so 3A may very well be in economy minus...

Interesting.
When I look up my booking ref. at SAS.dk it shows Economy Extra for both of the SK legs. But might change at check-in...

I dont really agree with you on that one about C and Y seating on the MUC and FRA routes. usually, at least when I have been on bord,there have been 2 rows of C and 5-6 rows of Y...
