Earn Miles & More Miles for Ordering Wine

Lufthansa’s frequent spending flyer programme, Miles & More, is the latest programme to offer miles for ordering wine. You can earn 2k Miles & More award miles with the first shipment and 5 award miles for every dollar spent for every shipment thereafter. As you can see, Lufthansa is in the mood to completely change Miles & More to become revenue based as now even miles… Read More

Aeroplan Award Ticket Routing Rules

My second favourite frequent flyer programme after Miles & More is Aeroplan – Air Canada’s frequent flyer programme (at least for the next 2 years). Aeroplan is an instant transfer partner of America Express Membership Rewards points and offers generous routing rules on award tickets while not charging fuel surcharges on a number of incredible Star Alliance airlines. The “trick” to booking Aeroplan awards with… Read More

United’s MileagePlus Restrictions are Killing Me

United Airlines devalued MileagePlus a few years ago and basically destroyed all of the value the programme had. Before the changes, the programme was actually amazing and my favourite use of Chase Ultimate Rewards points. However, first came an award chart devaluation whereby some awards went up 100% in cost and then came a major restriction in routing rules – basically if it doesn’t show… Read More

The Best North American Lufthansa First Class Route

Lufthansa First Class is an incredible way to fly – end of story. No other airline is able to provide such an amazing and consistent First Class experience from the moment you arrive at the airport to the moment you end your journey. The issue is that Lufthansa is still removing First Class from many aircraft and their new aircraft going forward won’t feature First… Read More

Fantastic SWISS First Availability (Miles & More)

SWISS International Air Lines, the premium carrier in the Lufthansa Group, offers First Class on all long-haul routes. Lufthansa only offers First Class service to select destinations and therefore it is increasingly becoming harder and harder to book Lufthansa First Class. However, SWISS First Class awards remain wide open for Miles & More Senators and HON Circle Members. LX First isn’t as popular as Lufthansa… Read More

Lufthansa Improves First Class Upgrades

Lufthansa recently announced a positive enhancement to Miles & More upgrade awards on Lufthansa flights. Specifically, all Lufthansa revenue Business Class fares are now eligible to be upgraded to First Class using miles or eVouchers. Previously, only the more expensive tickets purchased in Business Class were eligible for upgrades. Lufthansa First Class is the way to fly and I’m glad there are more opportunities to… Read More

LOT Polish Airlines Bookable with Aeroplan Again

Aeroplan, Air Canada’s frequent flyer programme, is one of my favourites when it comes to Star Alliance award redemptions. Aeroplan is incredibly generous when it comes to routing rules – you can have two stopovers in addition to a destination on round-trip award tickets, and with generous maximum permitted mileage, you can even create a mini-RTW with a simple round-trip booking. Furthermore, Aeroplan is an… Read More
