Booking a United award in Lufthansa premium economy: Is it possible?

Jump to last reply

I've relied on the expertise of Fodor's air travel experts here on the forum in the past and highly value your suggestions. Here goes again:

We're flying from SFO to Germany in mid-October 2015. We would like to book business class tickets using UA miles on Lufthansa non-stop either to Frankfurt (A380) or Munich (A340) on a specific date. Since there seems to be no availability in business class, despite extensive and intensive searches, we're considering LH's new premium economy product. The LH website shows premium economy on either of the flights on the date we prefer. I phoned UA to ask how to book premium economy using an award and was advised to book an award on economy on line (the flights we want are both available in economy) and phone LH to upgrade with $$$ to premium economy. I phoned LH to inquire about this and guess what: the rep said no way. They can't change the ticket of another airline. Apparently there's no way to book LH premium economy using a UA award. I'm hoping someone can provide insight or a work-around that would allow me to accomplish this.
