    As you book your upcoming business tickets on LH group (including LX)- be extra careful of "P" fares. The P fare is a business fare, however earns less miles than an economy ticket (same as a W fare). Very quietly introduced. Another reason to enjoy QR, EK, etc.

    On other boards the discussion will be sure to be quieted down by the FAN designators, however here we are free to say this is the biggest BS LH group has pulled in a couple of years. Time to enjoy some other carriers! Dont give money to business practices which dont mean your own level of operating. Rule 1.

    No, the K fare demotion was THE SINGLE MAJOR BS LH has laid on lately. With next to no warning this fare was downgraded to zero mileage accumulation in other STAR programs, and 50% in M&M outside Europe, even less within Europe. Reducing mileage on a deeply discounted business class fare is reasonable considering the cost may still be lower than an unrestricted Y fare which earns 100%.
