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

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

Apply Now For The Miles & More World Elite Mastercard!

The first ever credit card that I applied for when I turned 18 is the Lufthansa Miles & More® World Elite Mastercard®, which is issued by Barclaycard US. I fly with Lufthansa and the Lufthansa Group the most and therefore Miles & More is my primary (and favourite) frequent flyer programme. Since I’m a Senator, I can literally book Lufthansa First Class or SWISS First Class… 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

Earn Miles & More Miles for Cathay Pacific Flights

Lufthansa announced a few months ago that it will begin codesharing with Cathay Pacific. Lufthansa would place their flight number on some of Cathay’s flights to Oceania and Cathay would place their flight number on Lufthansa, Austrian, and SWISS flights to Europe. Back in the days, most of codesharing success and practices were usually done between airlines within the same alliance. Well, like most other airlines, Lufthansa… Read More

Best Miles & More Feature: Senator Companion Award

I love Miles & More. Yes, they charge fuel surcharges on nearly every single airline and yes most of the award flights booked through them are a bit overpriced.. but… I love Miles & More. Perhaps my favourite feature (besides being able to redeem miles for Lufthansa and SWISS First Class when I want) is the Miles & More Senator Companion Award. The Senator Companion… Read More

Miles and More: One Thing I Hate

Lufthansa’s Miles and More is a great frequent flyer programme for those who fly mostly First/Business Class and higher Economy Class fares. Miles and More award miles generously for First and Business Class, and also for expensive Economy fares. Senator Status (Star Alliance Gold) requires 100k Status Miles within one year, and the status is valid for at least two years (meaning you don’t need… Read More

Booked: SWISS First on the Boeing 777

Yay! I love being a Miles & More elite member – we basically have access to some of the world’s best First Class cabins months in advance, including Lufthansa and SWISS First Class. What’s interesting is that there’s more SWISS First availability than Lufthansa First. This is because SWISS First awards are restricted to Miles & More Senator and HON Circle Members. So basically because of… Read More

Flying SWISS First soon!

First Class on the SWISS Airbus A330 is incredible, stylish, and gorgeous. SWISS currently operates two long-haul aircraft, the A330 and A340; however, they will soon take delivery of their new flagship, the B777. The new SWISS First Class is only featured on their A330 (and will be on their B777), however not on their old A340s which will soon be phased out with the… Read More
