I'd do it. I assume you can spare the miles. And it will give you more to add to your next write up which only helps your site.
And you'll enjoy it. :)
Sounds like he's looking what to add...

Don't change! For the food, it's the same as they would serve on the plane,  your not getting restaurant quality.

I just had that same question in reverse. Was booked JFK-WAW-BUD on LO J for 52.5k was looking at JFK-FRA-BUD 5+ hours in WAW vs 3+ in FCT. Chose to change but to EWR-ZRH-BUD in LX J for same mileage and an hour shorter. Never been to the FCT but cant justify ~50k UA for a cigar and a scotch (or bourbon) and some so so kosher food. Think what you can buy for ~$600. Chaval al hazman. Does LX have an option for you?

So background of this is that I was perfectly content to keep as is and AJK insists that the only crazy decision here would be to fly UA when LH is an option and when I'm not flying with DW and kids to inconvenience.

First I said he's nuts and wrote it off, but it just kept nagging at me despite its ridiculousness...

Can't do EK/SQ as this is after the 3rd stopover already=No refunds :)
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

So tacking on another 1:30 flight in Y plus  mindless stopover to fly LH over UA? (which i happen to despise also)
