As much as I dislike LH, in this case I would choose them.
As you already mentioned, the overnight flight is perfect to save a night in a hotel because you are arriving in the morning and not at 9 PMish like the FRA flight. Last year I flew on AZ to DXB and it was also an overnight flight, we arrived and went directly to the beach after we had breakfast, much better than arriving, having drinks and go to bed like you do when you take the daytime flights with arrival in the evening.
If you are traveling on a stand-by ticket, then I can only say: Good Luck! I traveled in October/November 2003 on a LH stand-by ticket from FRA to DXB and it was pretty bad. Fellow A.net member SQ325 and I were booked in Biz Class but they downgraded us to Eco because Biz was totally overbooked. It comes even better, on the return flight we got the last two seats on a LX flight, I am glad we did because the LH flight was completely booked out.
