Lufthansa First Class is the best way to fly – from the incredible ground services in Frankfurt and Munich to the inflight experience, you will never want to fly anything else ever again. Lufthansa First Class is generally bookable using miles starting around 14 days before departure if you are using Star Alliance miles, if you are using Miles & More miles, you aren’t subject to this restriction.
Lufthansa and SWISS have published some incredible First Class fares from Europe to several cities in Asia. You can fly to Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, and Hong Kong for around €2k round-trip. You do need to originate in Kiev, Ukraine, however if you are in Europe, it is super easy to position to on a cheap revenue ticket or even on a low-cost carrier. Hell, even if I weren’t in Europe at the moment, I still may position from North America to Europe to take advantage of this incredible deal.
You can earn 42.322 Miles & More Status and HON Circle Miles if you aren’t a status member and if you’re a Frequent Traveller, Senator, or HON Circle Member, you can earn 46.516 miles for the above round-trip flight. That’s amazing and you can essentially qualify for Miles & More Senator Status with just two round-trips. With one round-trip, you have enough for a Business Class ticket to most places and even enough for a round-trip Economy Class ticket.
The only limitation is these are “companion” fares and you need to generally book at least two people on the same ticket to qualify for the highly reduced price. I’m sure you won’t have issues convincing anyone to fly Lufthansa First Class for this cheap… and think of the miles earned!
