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 airlines would be bookable online.. and they’ve kept and fulfilled that promise. As of 07 December 2017, 23 out of 27 Star Alliance airlines are bookable on the Miles & More website.

Full list of Star Alliance Airlines (bookable on Miles & More website = green, not bookable online = red):

  • Adria Airways
  • Aegean Airlines
  • Air Canada
  • Air China
  • Air India
  • Air New Zealand
  • ANA
  • Asiana Airlines
  • Austrian Airlines
  • Avianca
  • Brussels Airlines
  • Copa Airlines
  • Croatia Airlines
  • Egyptair
  • Ethiopian Airlines
  • EVA Air
  • LOT Polish Airlines
  • Lufthansa
  • SAS Scandinavian Airlines
  • Shenzhen Airlines
  • Singapore Airlines
  • South African Airways
  • SWISS International Air Lines
  • TAP Air Portugal
  • THAI Airways
  • Turkish Airlines
  • United Airlines

What is the most puzzling in this case is why United Airlines is still not yet bookable on the Miles & More website… Miles & More also has a few other airline partners, most of which are still not bookable online. Most flight awards on non-Star Alliance partner airlines are limited to a few routes/destinations.

  • Air Astana
  • Air Dolomiti
  • Air Malta
  • Cathay Pacific
  • Condor
  • Eurowings
  • Jet Airways (partnership ends on 31 December 2017)
  • Luxair
  • TAM

All in all, considering yesterday’s negative changes to the programme, these changes are positive. Just keep in mind that Miles & More does impose fuel surcharges on most airlines – you can reduce these by flying certain routes or originating your travel in certain countries.
