Try German number. I found them helpful
Tried. My numbers didn't work. You have a number that goes through?

Every star alliance partner displays LOT availability on the day I need including Miles and More, but when I call Miles and More they don't see it. Is that common?
Strange. Seems that each leg is available on its own but when added together it takes away availability. I need 3 seats, so whichever leg they search first has 3 available but when they try to add in the other leg there is only one available. Same the other way.

Yup. Trying to figure out how to get around that. I put the longhaul on hold for now and will attempt to add the first leg.

Hitting a wall every time. Would the married segments issue be due to LOT or M&M?
