I made your typical online booking a week ago for an LH business class flight JFK-MUC later this year. I got my e-ticket and all, but I'm feeling kind of nostalgic and all...(especially since I really HATE those thin paper boarding passes with passion) so I'm wondering, does anyone know of a way to still get the airline to actually mail physical tickets to you? Is there any way, or is it all really just a sad thing of the past now?

I don't know how, but we still VERY rarely get paper tickets. They are usually from the ultra-cheap discount ticket vendors, it seems. As far as getting the airlines to do paper tickets themselves, I'd venture a guess that's a thing of the past.

Some airlines will issue a paper ticket if the itinerary includes an airline that is not e-ticket compatible for some reason on the booked routing (sometimes small carriers, or complex multi-segment bookings).
I know United, will do this for an EXTRA $100-$150 charge.
