    Is this possible? Also how would I go about checking availability and booking?

    I'm trying to determine if its worth it for me to buy 50,000 Dividend Miles (receiving 100% bonus, for a total of 100,000) by 5/31 for $1800? Ideally I want to fly Lufthansa from IAD to LED in business.

    Yes, it is possible. Your best bet for finding the inventory would be via the United website. Once you find it call US and feed them the flight numbers.

    As for whether the seats will open up or not, that depends on how flexible you are with dates and possibly extra connections en route or flying other carriers.

    Booking an award in LH F is not possible using US miles.

    So if the flight is available on United... will it only cost 100,000 dividend miles, or would be for 125,000 (which I believe is one way, so 250,000 total since no saver awards are available). since that is the united cost? Sorry I'm new to the whole booking partner awards.
