This is more of a newbie question but I figured I'd post in a forum with a more direct group of experts... I know this has been discussed in many ways before but are there ways to book an award flight on LH in business class prior to two weeks before the flight? I have read many people say that this is not possible for first class, but I was not sure about business. What about economy? I'm not looking at traveling any time soon, but once the 747-8 comes to ORD, I would love to use some US Air or UA miles to get on that beauty upstairs in business class . If I wanted to do ORD-FRA-NRT, could I book the ORD-FRA segment in economy and the FRA-NRT in business? And then if/when something opens up on the ORD-FRA flight, move up (literally) to business. I know that if one segment is BC, then you get charged the miles for the whole trip in BC, so upgrading should not cost anything extra then right? All in all, I want to fly BC on LH but can't afford to wait until 2 weeks before flying.
