Dear Lufthansa: 5 Star Airlines Don’t Copy U.S. Airlines

Lufthansa was ranked as a “5 Star Airline” by Skytrax earlier this month, a ranking that was well deserved for the airline as Lufthansa’s First Class is the best in the world, the airline has the best European operations, and the FAs and ground staff are excellent in all cases. I love and will always love Lufthansa as I truly believe they are the best… Read More

Miles & More Award Booking: 23/27 Star Alliance Airlines Bookable Online (Full List)

Lufthansa’s frequent flyer programme, Miles & More, has been gradually improving their website over the past year or so to make it more user friendly and unique. Up until a few months ago, only integrated airline partners’ award flights were bookable online. In October, Lufthansa added the ability to book more Star Alliance airlines online and promised that by the end of this year, most… Read More

Disappointing: Lufthansa Miles & More Becomes Revenue-Based in 2018

This is a day I have not been looking forward to for a few years. Ever since the announcement of revenue-based frequent flyer programmes in North America, I knew that eventually European airlines would follow – it was just a matter of time and I was so very much hoping for “later” rather than “sooner”. However, we all knew this was coming. The Lufthansa Group… Read More

Is Lufthansa Miles & More HON Circle Worth It?

Lufthansa Miles & More HON Circle status is the ultimate top-tier status in the frequent flyer world. Everyone knows about HON Circle, but only a few thousand people hold the status – that’s because it is incredibly hard to achieve. Miles & More HON Circle status requires 600k flown HON Circle Miles over two years (if you split it – it’s only 300k per year). The… Read More

Earning 55k Lufthansa Miles & More Miles for $89 USD

My favourite frequent flyer programme is Lufthansa Miles & More due to a number of reasons, the primary being that I can book Lufthansa First Class whenever I want, without limitations.

The first credit card I applied for on my 18th birthday… Read More

Upgrading $800 Business Class Error Fare to SWISS First Class

Back in September, Star Alliance was having a crazy error fare on Air Canada, Lufthansa, SWISS, and United – you could book Business Class from a few European cities to San Francisco, round-trip, for less than $800 USD. From all of those four airlines, I would argue that SWISS has the best Business Class – especially considering they fly their new Boeing 777-300ER to San… Read More

Miles & More Flight Awards: More Airlines Bookable Online!

Lufthansa’s Miles & More Frequent Flyer Programme is the only way to redeem miles for Lufthansa First Class more than two weeks before departure. On certain routes, such as Chicago and New York to Frankfurt/Munich, availability is quite good – even for non-Status members of the programme. Up until a few days ago, the Miles & More website only allowed award flight bookings on the… Read More

Canada to Europe Round-Trip for 20k SPG Points

My favourite frequent flyer programme is Miles & More. While the programme does impose fuel surcharges, those can often be lowered if you’re strategic about which routes you book. Furthermore, Miles & More allows anyone to book Lufthansa First Class whenever you want before departure (otherwise it is only released 14 days before departure to partner airlines). Currently, you can redeem 25k Miles & More… Read More
