Lufthansa Miles & More has opened a new promotion for Double Award Miles on Economy Flights that have been recently booked and flown until 31st December 2018.
Lufthansa has changed to an earning structure based on the fare paid as far as LH Group flights are concerned and this means that the mileage amount for award miles can be very low.
You can access the promotional website here.
As a thank you for your loyalty, you will earn double award miles on Lufthansa Economy Class flights until the end of the year. Book your flights on LH.com between 27 November and 31 December 2018 and fly until the end of the year – naturally with all the benefits of a 5-star airline.
Lufthansa wishes you a restful end to the year and a pleasant time on board.
Award miles = airfare (EUR) x 4 (or x 6 for members with FTL/SEN/HON frequent flyer status)
For someone who paid a 1000 EUR base fare for their ticket plus the heavy surcharges LH has it means they get a measly 4000 award miles credited, status customers would get 6000 miles so at least with this promotion in place it props this amount up to a reasonable level but only if the flight has been booked on Lufthansa’s website.
And even if you spend a lot of money of a Lufthansa Economy flight they still make you pay for your set reservation and try to sell passengers fake upgrades.
The promotion is only targeted to Economy flights. Passengers who booked Premium Economy, Business and First Class will receive nothing from this.
It’s a nice little bonus but I’m always annoyed of promotions that only reward brand new bookings and show the middle finger to customers who already have existing bookings and given the airline their money. BA has the same going on right now where only new bookings count and it annoys me to no end.
This promotion doesn’t require any registration – just book and fly. It should be noted however that this promo isn’t valid for Miles&More members with an account address in Austria, Switzerland or Liechtenstein (no idea why they would come up with this exclusion).
These are the T&C for this promotion:
This promotion is valid for all scheduled flights in Economy Class operated by Lufthansa German Airlines within the travel period from 27 November to 31 December 2018 and booked via the LH.com booking channel between 27 November and 31 December 2018. Members resident in Austria, Switzerland or Liechtenstein are excluded from the promotion.
Within the promotional period, your individual factor for the calculation of award miles will additionally be incentivized by 100%. The additional award miles will be credited to you no later than 12 weeks after your flight.
In the context of this promotion, multiple miles will not be awarded on HON Circle, select and status miles. Bookings can only be taken into consideration if the Miles & More service card number was entered at the time of booking. Temporary members are excluded from the promotion. The additional award miles cannot be allocated for retroactive mileage credits. Subsequent upgrades will not be taken into account. This offer is not transferable.
