Used the numbers I believe you posted. They confirmed that it would be there. They asked what time i wanted it and I said an hour after i arrived from the connecting flight. They asked if Lounge A or B i said FCT they were confused but then figured it out after 20 minutes on hold.

Twitter @Lufthansa referred me to @Lufthansa_FCT which said sorry but we will scold our staff. Reported that to @Lufthansa and they sent me some link to fill out some more info. Still waiting on compensation. Not expecting anything. Swiss didnt get us KSML in J on outbound and i got 5k M&M.

Sorry to hear.  Worked flawlessly for me.

FWIW I called a week before i was at FCT and no kosher food showed up. My hostess said it was not an option in the FCT. Didnt argue.
When you called they promised it?
FWIW, I called and they had it.  Twitter DM did not work.

I have had quick turnaround times with the Twitter handle both times that I needed to get in touch with them.
What kind of SOS did you send out?

JK. No response. My guess is that as things get more popular they become less effective, quite common in our 'industry'.

Which number is that?
Well, I thought it was AJK.  Now I see D93 posted upthread:

I called LH first class services. Their number is 496986799444.

added to wiki, toll free US # 1-855-427-4377
Special line for private jets and other specialty first class. Said that they have been getting a lot of calls like this but they are not the right place and can no longer help. They said to call 877-999-6713, which also did not work (Key contact for travel agents?).
Any email or other US numbers?

UA website shows F4, A3, O0 on LH FRA-JFK when it opened there was O2 and i see 3 out of 8 seats booked. One of them is one of the O seats which i booked. Any experience on them opening additional seats even closer than 14 days, and how close? Would rather not sit apart from DW...she's in F for now im in J.
IME they sometimes do open more F seats as you get closer in, but A3 is getting tougher especially 1) on that route and 2) if they already released O2.

Very good odds with those numbers.

Book the 1 F seat and wait. If another opens, great, if it's doesn't, then cancel the 1 you booked.
SQ says they cannot split the booking on partner airlines.  And if we cancel and reissue, then even the J seat may not be available.  DROPR? HUCA?

I for one think that is pretty great availability, notwithstanding you can't find the JFK flight you're hoping for.
LH did open up some more F availability.
Right now only one seat on flight I'm looking for. Question is, since we are a party of 2, and already booked in J on that flight, is it wise to upgrade 1 pax to F and hope that they open up more later, or does LH only typically open up F one time (per flight) and that's it till takeoff? We'd rather not split into two cabins. FWIW the flight shows F7/A7/O1.

Currently, I am seeing dsicounted mileage fares on delta.com, i.e. 9,500 or 11,500 instead of 12,500 and 15,500 instead of 17,500. However, when I try to book, it errors out, saying the fare is no longer valid.
Anyone else having this issue?
I was able to get them to honor it over the phone, but they couldn't figure out why it was happening. I still see some of those reduced fares online. Of course, DL no longer publishes an award chart, so there is no telling whether this is a discount or the new normal.
