Quoting Antonovman (Reply 4): Go sit in the irish village pub near gate 16. Have a few nice pints of beer, have a smoke and watch the aircraft from the windows. Then get back on the plane and sleep all the way hom
If you are looking into more milage runs for LH's M&M, have a look into the European Business Class "upgrade"-fares on the LX website. These are available also for same-day return flights (at least on weekends).
When flying into MXP, you can fly out around 1000h at your home base and return by 1830h-ish, with a stay of around 90 minutes at MXP. Will get you 8000 miles plus bonus, if applicable.
Carpe diem ! Life is too short to waste your time ! Keep in mind, that today is the first day of the rest of your life !
The miles from this trip will give me another 2 years of Senator status at Lufthansa. Apart from lounges, priorities on waiting lists and free upgrades my wife flies for 50% of the miles when we book a vacation using my miles. This is the main financial benefit (for us) - and I have fun flying around (but unfortunately no time for a reasonable stay at the destination this time).
