New Lufthansa Miles & More Mileage Bargains Are Out With Many Long Haul Destinations In Business Class (Boston, Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai etc.)

2 Comments

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 again if North America and Greater China are your destinations of choice.

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:

Atlanta (30,000 instead of 60,000 Miles) Economy Class
Beijing (55,000 instead of 105,000 Miles) Business Class
Boston (30,000 instead of 60,000 Miles) Economy Class
Boston (55,000 instead of 105,000 Miles) Business Class
Chicago (30,000 instead of 60,000 Miles) Economy Class
Charlotte (30,000 instead of 60,000 Miles) Economy Class
Detroit (55,000 instead of 105,000 Miles) Business Class
Hong Kong (55,000 instead of 105,000 Miles) Business Class
Houston (30,000 instead of 60,000 Miles) Economy Class
Nanjing (55,000 instead of 105,000 Miles) Business Class
New York (30,000 instead of 60,000 Miles) Economy Class
Philadelphia (30,000 instead of 60,000 Miles) Economy Class
Qingdao (55,000 instead of 105,000 Miles) Business Class
Shanghai (55,000 instead of 105,000 Miles) Business Class
Toronto (30,000 instead of 60,000 Miles) Economy Class
Washington Dulles (55,000 instead of 105,000 Miles) Business Class

I expect the highlighted destinations to be quite popular and limited in availability. The applicable booking- and travel dates vary.

Long Haul Destinations (as listed above):

  • Booking period: 02.10.2017 – 01.11.2017
  • Travel period: 01.12.2018 – 15.03.2018

Short Haul Destinations (Brussels, Paris, Zurich etc):

  • Booking period: 02.10.2017 – 01.11.2017
  • Travel period: 01.12.2017 – 15.01.2018

There are also a range of options on Croatia Airlines good until the end of the year.

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 and about half that for a short haul flight):

Conclusion

Certainly a very interesting list this time with a mix of North American and Chinese long haul destinations. I imagine that Boston, Hong Kong and Shanghai will be very popular as far as redemptions are concerned. Qingdao, the Chinese city of beer, is also upcoming.
