Is LX still doing First Class? Can I book thru UA?

I am UA 1K looking to use up MP miles on a LX first Class award ticket preferably to Zurich sometime this year. When I look on the United web site, it does not show any Swiss First Class either paid or award? I assume Swiss still has a First Class cabin? Do I need to book directly with Swiss?

Thanks

LX F awards are only available to Miles & More members with SEN or HON status.

And you have to book it as a LX flight, as UA does not offer First class anymore (even on code share flights.

And hopefully for a ling time to come.

Regarding OPs question: You canít book Swiss First class award flights unless you are senator in M&M.
Also regular F class tickets canít be bought via UA on the codeshare anymore since UA offers no more F. Also one simply does not buy LX F on the UA cs number... (No lounge access!). Luckily this is not possible anymore.
