    Hi guys,
    I've never had trouble booking short haul Business Class flights on LH through Krisflyer.
    However, I've been trying to get a First Class ticket on LH from FRA-JFK at the end of July and even though (according to Expertflyer) zero seats have been sold in First Class on the flight I want, Krisflyer has no availability. Any ideas when LH open up long haul First Class reward inventory to Krisflyer? The call centre girl was pretty unhelpful.
    Thanks

    I don't know about KrisFlyer, but FT often reports that LH release seats about 2 weeks out.

    I didn't think LH F was available to *A partners? (except LM in certain circumstances)

    LX F is not available to partners.

    FT says yes LH F is gettable.

    So LH F is available with Krisflyer miles? If yes this just made me really happy...

    I couldn't give you a definitive answer.

    LH F is available with KF. As said above, LX is the one that has restrictions.

    I think the perception of LH F not being open to *A partners is largely due to US Airways prior to them joining OW because they did have this restriction. But for KF, this isn't a problem.

    Availability is a different issue altogether however.

    I knew LX wasn't available.
    I'm going to keep trying LH until about a week out..! I am confirmed on the SQ A380 the following day anyway but the LH flight is more convenient timing..!

    Thanks for confirming that! Now to decide, SQ F or LH F?
