LH via M&M only has better avail for LH & LX flights

You didn't specify which class, but I'd guess CX for 30k in Y or 50k in J with Alaska, or 67.5k in F with AA, are probably the cheapest options.

80k with United miles for no fuel surcharges. 57.5k with Singapore miles which have fuel surcharges on carriers other than United (fuel surcharges when flying LOT Polish are significantly lower than other airlines with fuel surcharges). 70k and no fuel surcharges with BA miles if you find availability with Air Berlin.
