    Well I agree that I don't see any biz availability to JNB or CPT in the next couple of weeks though I did see 2 days with LH F. Maybe @Tiffany can report on what her team has been seeing.

    LH availability in premium cabins to South Africa is consistently rare to non-existent. It don't know what routes you're looking at, but haven't seen anything to suggest an issue with the United partnership at this point.

    Don't know about UA's award availability for LH, however, I recently was upgraded to Lufthansa Business from Frankfurt to Cape Town using a United GPU. I was booked on United from Chicago to Cape Town with 1st leg on United. Was quite surprised GPU cleared 4 days prior to departure, as the flight was just a week prior to Christmas. Turned out to be a full flight too. Lufthansa really knows how to do Business Class right! Service was superb; seats very comfortable on an A340.
