UA miles for LH first – pricing

    Hi Lucky,

    I have some flexibility with an upcoming trip to London and would love to try and fly LH first class from the west coast. I just did a test booking on, and it won’t offer me LAX-FRA-LHR unless I do a multi-city search. However, the price then goes up to 140,000 miles instead of the 110,000 for LAX-FRA alone. Is this correct? Am I running into a problem with back-tracking or maximum permitted miles?

    Thank you!

    Nope, it’s just the website. That should be allowed if everything is at the saver level.
