Lufthansa Miles & More has a new status miles promotion for their members can earn a maximum of 7,000 additional status miles when completing two intra-EU and two Intercontinental flights through September 15, 2021.
In addition to this the double status miles promotion until the end of 2021 is ongoing so obtaining Miles&More status might actually be very easy this year if once can travel.
This promotion was announced by email to members today together with a personalized link to register for the campaign.
The email reads:
The longing for sun, a holiday or a change of scenery has probably never been greater. At last we can take off again.
Have you booked your flights for your summer holiday yet? It’s now even more worthwhile than ever.
From 1.6. to 15.9.2021, you’ll receive extra status miles on flights with Lufthansa Group airlines and selected airline partners:
2,000 status miles for two flights within Europe and 5,000 status miles for two intercontinental flights.1
In addition, you’ll automatically continue to earn double status miles until the end of 2021, and benefit from further promotions that will reward your flight activities with extra status miles in the second half of the year.2
This makes Lufthansa status very approachable this year considering the double status miles promotion as well as the credit card miles promotion.
You can find our previous article related to these campaigns here:
Assuming one has the Lufthansa credit card and max out this 30k miles maximum amount of status miles it would be relatively easy to obtain the tier requirements of:
- 35,000 miles for Lufthansa Miles & More Frequent Traveller, Star Alliance Silver
- 100,000 miles for Lufthansa Miles & More Senator, Star Alliance Gold
HON Circle members will not profit from either of these campaigns.
Again, this came via email and included a sign up link. You should check your email and spam folder for it in order to register!
The entire travel loyalty landscape might change in some ways during the next couple of years, the least change would be for some customers with zero activity in 2020/2021 to start from a lower loyalty tier level again. Worst case from zero. It’s also a good opportunity for many to reconsider which loyalty schemes still make sense and which ones don’t as the requirements to maintain status are simply to high until previous travel volume returns.
Lufthansa Miles & More members can earn a maximum of 7,000 additional status miles when completing two EU / Intercontinental flights through September 15th.
Lufthansa makes it relatively easy for those existing tier members to keep their status active. Frequent Travellers will have it the easiest. Senator members still need to fly a bit and HON Circle members a lot depending on how many goodwill miles they received from 2020.
Business travel will remain more or less stagnant during 2021 except for some very urgent travel purposes such as production and engineering. Personal travel – be it for holidays or to visit friends / family is still highly restricted through closed borders and health certification requirements. Racking up a substantial amount of miles through international flights this year might prove difficult.
