There are no other updates for earning award miles on Turkish flights.

Conclusion

There has be something wrong with the relationship between Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines. It is really unheard that an alliance partner would only give 25% of the award miles as elite qualifying on non-discounted fares.

Lufthansa must feel threatened about the rise of the Turkish Airlines in Europe. I cannot see any other reason for this drastic move.
