    I've got to get back to BOS from LIS March 2012. I'm about to book 2 x 50k for J seats using CO awards. F would be nice but I don't want to burn the miles if J is adequate. (It will be Lufthansa A340-600 over the water). I'm not missing anything, am I? Using a one-way CO award is the way to go, correct?

    Is it LH C that you'd be getting? If so that's just a mediocre product and I'd considering paying the extra points for LH F, assuming availability. If it is CO C (i.e. BusinessFirst) then I'd just go with that.

    And, yes, the 50K C one-way award is a pretty good deal.

    I'd also give TAP a try as well, their C product is good from what I am told and personally having tried the LH C product that is rather mediocre so I'd go with... TP/CO/LX over LH at this point.

    An update. I wound up booking 2 F seats LIS-MUC-BOS on LH. We'll have 3 hr 45 minutes to enjoy the FCL in MUC. None of the other airlines - TP/CO/LX - had seats available. It won't be a 380 experience but it will be fun to see the lounge in MUC. 67.5K each seat. After I finished booking, I had 5 miles left in my account. It would have been a drag if I were 5 miles short...
