LH First Class Avail – which day of the week?
I am looking at scoring an LH F award from FRA to the US/MEX/anywhere on a day flight.
Is there a rule of thumb on which day of the week it is best to get the seat you want?
I’ll start looking 15 days out, but of course I want to maximize my chances of getting the best flight possible. In using Eurobonus miles, flying CPH-FRA-???
In one word – expertflyer

In one Lucky’s Post –
The info above is about the release of the award seat. In terms of redemption, I usually use Aeroplan (80k + ~3xx USD) or Asiana (50k + ~3xx USD) to redeem LH F one way.
Hope that helps! 😉
