Best way to book a Lufthansa flight man to NYC in J ?
Lufthansa wants 52,000 plus $434 tax
United wants 70,000 plus around $250 tax. 
Any better star Alliance options ?

United does not want $250 in taxes. Screenshot please.
Work hard, Play harder!

UK departure tax.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

I meant timing wise does it make sense to arrive at 5:20 AM and stay for 5 hours?

I guess the way back makes more sense as I would arrive 9 AM and leave 1:30

Sorry bud, IINM you're paying 10% of published for those  :(

One of the very important things to do when booking a flight with an infant (especially in premium cabin) is to take into account individual airlines infant policy.
