Update: I’ve booked myself Seoul to Frankfurt to Munich to Toronto to Los Angeles one way for 70k miles. The long legs are in Asiana First Class and Lufthansa First Class. I can check out the First Class Terminal in Frankfurt from whenever I get to the airport until 10 AM. I wish it were longer, but I am excited to have a chance to get inside.

As for the trip, I am thinking of getting to Asia on the Island Hopper plus Avios and trying to see North Korea.

Lufthansa First Class award space is currently bookable with United miles from April 2014 through October 2014. This is huge news because normally Lufthansa First Class award space is only bookable with partner miles 15 days before departure. I expect this glitch to be corrected within a few hours, but I expect all tickets booked to be honored.

Lufthansa is widely considered to have one of the nicest First Class products in the world, and they are one of the three carriers I want to fly as soon as possible!

One of the main reasons I want to fly Lufthansa First Class is to enjoy access to the First Class Terminal in Frankfurt. Booking today would give access to the First Class Terminal if you book the right routing.

Book now!

If you have any desire to use this award space, book now. You will be able to cancel for up to 24 hours with no penalty. You’ll get all your miles and taxes back. But I don’t expect this deal to last 24 hours.

More info on the routes with the available space, the products that fly those routes, and how to maximize the deal after the jump!

Lufthansa has a world-class First Class product in which it normally doesn’t release award space to partners until 15 days before departure.

Lufthansa introduced two new routes served by an A330 with the newest Business and First Class products between Munich and Mexico City starting April 3, 2014 and between Munich and Toronto, starting June 5, 2014.

Right now both have phenomenal Business and First Class space from the day they start through the end of the calendar including peak summer travel.

Toronto to Munich

Toronto to Munich will be operated daily by an A330 with three cabins and the new First and Business Class products. The route starts June 5, 2014.

Below is the calendar for two passengers flying direct from Munich to Toronto. As you can see, almost every day from June 5 on has award space in premium cabins for two passengers. Most of the flights have award space for both business and first class passengers.

Mexico City to Munich

Mexico City to Munich will be operated five days a week with an A340-600.

Below are the award calendars between Mexico City and Munich for two passengers. I only see business class space, no first class space. Business class space only runs through July 30, 2014.

Getting into First Class Terminal

The First Class Terminal is in Frankfurt. Most people access it by being a departing First Class passenger from Frankfurt. You can also access it, though, if you are flying from Frankfurt to Munich to connect to First Class there.

So if you book something like Frankfurt to Munich to Toronto to your home airport, you can access the First Class Terminal in Frankfurt.
