In case someone is interested, I just saw that Lufthansa is offering really good fares to Singapore, Hong Kong and Atlanta. The flights cost 299 EUR + 10 EUR ticket fee. When you want to start from another German airport than FRA you can book flights to/from FRA for only 50 EUR more. You can earn miles on these flights.
The terms and conditions of the offer:
- Bookable from Wednesday to Tuesday
- Travel period from Wednesday starting 10 days (until the following Saturday at the latest)
- Minimum stay: Saturday to Sunday or a minimum of 4 days, maximum 14 days, intercontinental flights 1 month
- Fares include taxes and charges; excl. Lufthansa Ticket Service Charge
- Reebooking not allowed
Additionally is Singapore Airlines offering FRA-JFK-FRA flights for ~303 EUR (taxes and fees incl.) but you can't earn miles for these flights.
I will call a friend now to ask if he would like to join me on a spontaneous trip to HKG or ATL, the offer is simply too good, even when it is Lufthansa.

Quoting EuroBonus (Reply 7): Is the offer for German residents only? I tried to book a ticket to SIN, but they asked about the country of origin, then I should start over when I chose Danish, and couldn't finish the booking?
Yes Germany must be selected. In some cases, a fake address is needed, don't know about LH. All easy in these e-ticket times.

Quoting EuroBonus (Reply 9): Well - I created a new profile and it worked well. Going to to SIN and will travel around in Malaysia for two weeks. Actually a very good price!
I am glad that someone took advantage of the offer. Such threads get usually answers like: "Way too expensive, I non-rev for 0.87 EUR from FRA via SYD to LAX and back in First Class".
Make sure they credit you the 8.500+ miles to your FFP account. The booking class was "W" wich usually earns only ~2.500 miles but the "click here to see how much miles you get" button clearly showed 8.500+. Make a screenshot of it and print it out when you want to be on the safe side.
Quoting Lufthansa747 (Reply 10): That's a pretty amazing fare to SIN I'd have to say. I recall the SQ SARS offer even was more.
299 EUR is even a pretty amazing fare for ATL because it includes full mileage credit. I was thinking about going to ATL ot HKG but I didn't find good fares on the dates I wanted to travel, however I have to say that I saw the 299 fare on alternative dates.
Lari, do you know why I didn't look for SIN flights? ...................... That would be way too much! Even 299 EUR is too expensive for two 12+ hour night flights in Lufthansa's Economy Class.

Hahahaha, so true!
I hate this junk about showing full mileage - it shows also on lufthansa-thailand.com for KUL/CGK flights although they're booked in W. Pretty good prices though, 3000 THB for KUL and 5000 for CGK.
