    Hi all.

    Though not a mileage run in the purest sense, but we dont have a premium fare sticky thread so I thought to drop it in here.

    Noticed on UA.com tonight a bunch of First class fares for April 2012 in the 4300-5500 range (depending on US origin) to Germany. Many options allowed for LH metal flights as well. This is likely as a result of the Easter Business Class that they launched earlier this month. These fares were there as of 7p tonight (12/23). Same dates on LH.com were coming in at the more traditional 13-16k range.

    BCN is 1:30hs away from FRA/MUC!
    If you're going to pay 5K for a ticket I think you wont mind to pay an extra 50 euros to get to Spain.

    FRA-BCN is 2 hours flight plus the time between TATL flight and FRA-BCN plus have not seen any business fares FRA-BCN in 50 euros range. Do they actually exist?

    Especially since you still get all the benefits of FCT/FCL in FRA regardless of the FRA-BCN cabin.

    nothing that I saw specifically, just random searches through the april time frame. usually during easter you get nice $2500 z fares, so the F's seem to follow down a bit. I noticed in May and June that F was back to its normal 9-12k.......
