During my hiatus from blogging a couple weeks ago United introduced the ability to book Lufthansa reward tickets online. Before that I wanted to go to Prague, but I was spending too much time messing around on ANA’s website. I would find some flights, but then you have to deal with making sure United’s agents can see the same routings. Sure, ANA had cleaner itineraries (I can technically go US CLT-FRA or LH CLT-MUC and then LH to PRG) while United’s itineraries were all 3 legs each way, but I was able to book in Business (first for domestics) for the whole itinerary for 105,000 miles. I was also able to get the dates I wanted on the first try! That is impossible with Delta miles which is why I value United miles much more.
Transparency and no phone booking fee prevailed today. If anyone would like to join me in Prague check out the Prague DO thread on Flyertalk. I’ll be there now!
