SQ also best option for VIE-FRA-NYC?

No, for that use AC.

No, for that use AC.

Not so simple.. If its on LH I would book via UA 70k (but its close) if its on UA book via AC for 55k.

70k UA worth around $875 + no YQ
55k AC worth around $715 + YQ

he asked about LH not UA, and F not J, which is 110k UA + no YQ or 70k AC + YQ.

If I just book FRA-NYC using SQ, does that lower the mileage amount ?

yes, it is a very weird cost structure they have.. Europe to USA costs more than Middle East to USA.
