    I just found a business class ticket rt from Miami to Copenhagen on Lufthansa for $2600. You get 100% star alliance credit...although the fare isn't upgradeable to first...still a great price. Travel is in October.

    This is normal, while LH only give 100% EQMs on this P fare, if you request the mileage to be posted to your UA account, you get 150% (maybe 125% will look up) just as if it were booked through UA. Not sure if you want the mileage on other Star carriers

    If you book this P fare on UA (and fly on UA) same price, you CAN upgrade to first, with miles and money (20,000 miles and $550) each way (systemwide upgrades don't work) , UA business seats are true 180 degree lie flat and are better than the 15 year old LH170 degree seats anyway.( other than a few old UA 777's which haven't been upgraded with the new seats. All UA 767, 747 and most 777s have the new seats and they are nice. LH does have the new business, 180 degree seat on 6 planes, the 3 new 747-800's (one flies IAD-FRA except for Mon, Tues) what are the routes for the other 2? Also the new business class had been fitted on 3 A330's (at least one is on the IAD-MUC route) does anybody know the routes of the other two? Very slow roll out.

    I think the A330s are flying on the MUC -YUL route now also.
