On a pence per mile the deals to Asia and South America look good. Interesting that departure includes 23 and 24 December, typically very busy days, but as they are subject to availability so it might work that way. When I checked to HKG there was quite limited availability, forcing a flight from London to Munich, back to Frankfurt and then on to HKG – suggesting the LHR-FRA flights are pretty busy on the 23rd at least.
Tickets book in P class, earning only 100% of miles flown as Status Miles on LH now.
