    We did JFK-LH-FRA-LH-SIN-SQ-AKL and BNE-SQ-SIN-LH-MUC-LH-FRA in LH F & SQ C last year. It’s honestly a ridiculous amount of air travel and it’s impossible to enjoy premium cabin service for the 30th consecutive hour. But it was still amazing. 😉

    oops — of course, our last flight was MUC-JFK, not MUC-FRA.

    Impossible, you say??

    I take that as a challenge. I wonder if they’ll let me keep all the empty champers bottles so that I can build a collection through the trip. I figure I should have enough by the time I get to AKL that I could build a table or something from them. :p

    Oceania? Is that a nickname for Australia?

    Do you know if the Atlantic routing is still possible if you start travel in HNL?

    I highly doubt that it would work if starting in Hawaii. Those rewards are different in terms of points required and rules in general. I would imagine that this applies to the routing limitations as well.

    Ironically, I was able to book and ticket EZE-FRA-ZRH-BKK-SYD one-way award in F (for me and my wife) with UA about a month ago for 90K miles. I definitely got lucky but then again, route going via the pacific is so difficult to being with when UA restricts availability on their SYD route. Availability of the seats were relatively easy with LH and TG on EZE-FRA and BKK-SYD. ZRH-BKK on LX was a bit difficult but fortunately, 2 F seats were available on the day I needed. I told the agent that I wanted to construct the itinerary one-by-one and she was quite happy to assist me. Afterwards, she verified that award chart indicated 90K miles one-way in F so that’s how much miles she deducted. Knowing that I will get completely different answer if I called again (even after putting the award on hold), I asked her to ticket it immediately. Worked like a charm! The flight is in October and I can’t wait to fly!
