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

Greetings from the Park Hyatt Maldives!

Well, it sure has been a very busy travel week for me – I started it in Rome, continued to Vienna, then to Dubai, after that Abu Dhabi… and finally now in the Maldives! More specifically, at the island of paradise a.k.a the Park Hyatt Maldives. I’ve decided to bring my parents along to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and the Maldives.. and they are totally in… Read More

EXCLUSIVE: Wireless Charging coming to Lufthansa Business Class

While I’ve covered the announcement of Lufthansa’s new Business Class extensively, some new information was revealed by the German airline in today’s press release. Specifically, Lufthansa’s new cabin will be very technology-driven which means that passengers will be able to control the seat functions and the IFE directly from their personal devices (I assume that this also means that we will be able to stream… Read More

Lufthansa Business Class To Feature Mattresses, Duvets, and Pyjamas in 2018

Last week, Lufthansa German Airlines introduced their new Business Class cabin which will debut in 2020 on their new Boeing 777-9. The new Lufthansa Business Class product will feature direct aisle access from every seat, each seat will have much more privacy, a special shoulder zone, and much more. Lufthansa’s new Business Class seat is revolutionary; the new seat will also be installed on Austrian… Read More

Brussels Airlines: No 24-hour Free Cancel

I have a love/hate relationship with Brussels Airlines – I love them because they have cheap fares within Europe and I can earn Miles & More miles on all of their tickets. I hate them because 1) they don’t offer anything for free in European Economy and 2) the FAs and ground staff aren’t the nicest. That being said, I now hate Brussels Airlines more…. Read More

Buy 20k Miles & More Miles for €299

Miles & More miles are one of the most valuable miles because you can use them to book Lufthansa First Class whenever you want and are not subject to the two-week restriction that is imposed on other Star Alliance airlines. Miles & More members also have access to more First and Business Class award space on Lufthansa Group flights. A while back, Miles & More… 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. Not only that, Senator and HON Circle Members have access to more award space on Lufthansa Group flights, which is an incredible benefit. 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

New Lufthansa Business Class is Revolutionary

Lufthansa announced yesterday their plans to install a completely new Business Class cabin when they take delivery of their Boeing 777-9 in 2020. While many Lufthansa fans including myself are calling the new Lufthansa Business Class revolutionary, some have quickly stated that Lufthansa’s new Business Class is “nothing new”. The new Lufthansa Business Class will feature: Direct aisle access from every seat Each seat will… Read More

New Aeroplan Agents are Terrible

My favourite use of American Express Membership Rewards points is by transferring them to Air Canada Aeroplan and redeeming for Lufthansa First Class. While Aeroplan does impose fuel surcharges for travel on Lufthansa, they’re not that bad when originating in some European countries. I generally love Aeroplan because they have generous routing rules, a great award chart, and don’t impose fuel surcharges on a number… Read More

Avoiding American Airlines AAdvantage Close-In Booking Fee

American and United Airlines love to charge a $75 USD “close-in” booking fee when redeeming miles for flights within 21 days of departure. The close-in booking fee is a total scam because it does not cost American or United any more money to issue a ticket closer to departure. Thankfully, there is a creative way to avoid the AAdvantage close-in booking fee. I already mentioned how… Read More
