    Hi all,

    Trying to work out an itinerary for next year. Found UA First Class return (via Frankfurt) but nothing on the outbound. It would be enormously helpful if I could find a way to search for any First Class seat on any Star Alliance partner to ANY major city in Europe to which we could connect to from our final destination.

    If I did find something, the final leg could either be on cash or on points - wouldn't care if I could get the Transatlantic.

    Anyone know of any utility that would do this? Are you listening Seth?!

    Thanks all.

    For a while now. ;)

    Would something like this help?

    Award only, but it is a start.

    Somehow I knew you'd be the one.:)

    Okay - in trying to use it, I couldn't do a Search so I created an alert. What happens now? Does a lack of information presume there are no appropriate flights?

    Thanks again Seth.

    It is not a real-time search. It runs every few hours (at least once a day) and will email you if it finds anything.

    My day job has a component of this for paid flights. Once we are actually up and running I will give some 'expert' tips for using our system.

    BINGO!!!!

    Got my email from Seth's utility stating that First Class just opened up on UA. Checked UA, then checked ANA to be sure at least one partner had it listed and finally called US Air. Very nice, very helpful and I'm very happy. With US Air, even tho I was only FC on the return and Business on the outboound, they still charge the entire itinerary out as First. Now at least I feel I'm getting my money's worth.

    Thanks Seth for helping make this happen.

    Pretty much. But it is still pretty slick to see all the results populate in on one page. :D
