Lufthansa Miles & More Mileage Bargains Are Out With Great Long Haul Destinations In Business Class (Bangkok, Boston, Osaka, Seoul etc.)

by -

Lufthansa Miles&More has just published their new list for the popular Mileage Bargains or Meilenschnaeppchen as they are being called in German.

The Mileage Bargains offer a comprehensive list of destinations that can be booked for a vastly reduced amount of Miles&More miles and this time around the selection is pretty good.

The Lufthansa Mileage Bargains can be booked exclusively through the Miles&More website and there is no option to change or cancel the award once booked. Child discounts are not applicable either.

You can access the Lufthansa Miles&More website with the entire list here.

Here is a list I have compiled of the long haul destinations available this time around:

Addis Abeba (40,000 Miles – Business)
Bangkok (70,000 Miles – Business)
Bahrain (40,000 Miles – Business)
Beijing (40,000 Miles – Economy)
Boston (30,000 Miles – Economy / 55,000 Miles – Business)
Cairo (40,000 Miles – Business)
Charlotte (55,000 Miles – Business)
Chicago (30,000 Miles – Economy)
Dammam (40,000 Miles – Business)
Delhi (30,000 Miles – Economy / 55,000 Miles – Business)
Detroit (55,000 Miles – Business)
Doha (40,000 Miles – Business)
Jeddah (40,000 Miles – Business)
Kuwait (40,000 Miles – Business)
Los Angeles (30,000 Miles – Economy)
Montreal (30,000 Miles – Economy / 55,000 Miles – Business)
Mumbai (30,000 Miles – Economy / 55,000 Miles – Business)
Nanjing (40,000 Miles – Economy)
Osaka (70,000 Miles – Business)
Qingdao (40,000 Miles – Economy)
Shanghai (40,000 Miles – Economy)
San Francisco (30,000 Miles – Economy)
San Jose (30,000 Miles – Economy)
Seoul (70,000 Miles – Business)
Tehran (40,000 Miles – Business)
Washington D.C. (30,000 Miles – Economy)

I expect the highlighted destinations to be very popular.

The applicable booking- and travel dates vary.

Long Haul Destinations:


  • Booking period: 03.07.2017 – 31.07.2017
  • Travel period: 01.11.2017 – 15.12.2017

Medium Haul Destinations (Tehran, Addis Abeba etc)


  • Booking period: 01.06.2017 – 02.07.2017
  • Travel period: 01.10.2017 – 15.11.2017


Short Haul Destinations (Dublin, Istanbul etc)


  • Booking period: 03.07.2017 – 31.07.2017
  • Travel period: 01.09.2017 – 15.10.2017

The following examples (taken directly from the LH Mileage Bargains website) are the Business Class destinations, departures from Germany:

The following ones are for Economy Class (keep in mind that the taxes and fuel surcharges for Miles&More flights are pretty high, usually ~ 380 EUR for a long haul Economy Class return flight).


Certainly a very interesting list this time. Traveling to Thailand in the German winter should be very popular with customers, Boston and Osaka in the late fall / early winter are also fantastic.

It’s safe to say this list has pretty much something for everybody, provided you have Lufthansa Miles that is.

    But the fuel surcharge… ugh.

  • Alex

    may be there are good bargain in miles but then 500/600€ in charges, tax, fuel, etc are crazy, only use miles on LH/LX for UPGs to business or first class

  • Nick Hevelian

    Redeem via LO to avoid the fuel surcharge. They publish their own mileage bargains every two weeks.

      I have try what you said at LO web site but links auto to M&M web site with the same surcharges…do you have any link to the LO site ?? thanks

      • Nick Hevelian

        Set the country to PL in the Profile setting at the top right (you can keep the language as English). If that doesn’t work try using a VPN also (I usually access the miles and more page from Poland).
