I’m planning on taking my 1st First Class flight from Europe back to SFO – although I only have enough M&M miles (85K) for a 1-way trip. If you had a choice, which would you fly – Lufthansa from Frankfurt to SFO, Lufthansa from Munich to SFO or Swiss from Zurich to SFO? I heard about the great ground services at Frankfurt and Munich but since both Lufthansa flights are early afternoon flights – is it still worth spending an hour or 2 at these hubs?
BTW, even though I’m using M&M miles, I am not seeing a lot of First Class availability (in the next 2 months) using their Miles & More web site to book. I thought Lufthansa opens up their First Class seats to their M&M members more than Star Alliance partners but I’m still not seeing a lot of seats.
Cheers and thanks for your help,
@ Jerry — I assume you don’t have status with Miles & More? If so, you can’t redeem miles for Swiss first class. That being said, if you can find availability then I’d recommend the FRA to SFO flight. But even with Miles & More that’s a really tough flight on which to snag space.
