Not lie flat, only angle.

Both short flights into TLV, both great lounges, I think LH J would be better (the long haul) than TK but not having flown either I really can't say.

It just got available on  unites first to FRA on 777 instead of LH business on the upper deck of the 747, anyone with a quick input what's better ?
It would cost me an additional 10k Miles, also will I have access to the first class lounge if i do choose that?

I'm referring to EWR-TLV.

I know this isn't the perfect thread, but hopefully close enough. I have 50k and SO has over 60k of LH M&M. the the years is coming up at the end of this year. We live in Israel. Looked at flying in J RT to places in europe, even morroco. The YQ came out to be 300$!!! So insane. Any ideas for using the miles without dropping serious YQ?

LH flight is about 4 hours AFAIK and to is sub 2 hours so wouldn't call that "both short flights"

United first will not get you access to LH first terminal. Even if it was LH first I think you need to be in first FROM FRA to get the lounge not arriving in First
