Last chance to win an iPad with Lufthansa JetFriends


Just a quick reminder that September 15th is the last day to enter the competition that Lufthansa is running to promote the new website and app for their JetFriends childrens club. There is an iPad up for grabs as the main prize. The competition is UK-only […]

The Accor hotel group has launched a surprisingly generous promotion with Lufthansa Miles & More, running until 31st December. Full details are here on the Lufthansa website.  I cannot find this offer referenced anywhere on the Accor site. If you choose to earn airline miles instead of […]

Earn 10,000 Lufthansa Miles & More with a subscription to The Economist


Back in May, I ran a promotion which offered 8,000 Avios points for a 1-year subscription to The Economist.  I know a few Head for Points readers took it up – I also know a few have had trouble getting their points credited. A similar offer […]

Lufthansa business class to be 100% fully flat by mid 2015

Lufthansa 747-8

Lufthansa may be having financial problems at the moment but most are self-inflicted.  The list of problems is long, but high up the list was their failure to invest in a fully-flat business class seat.  I’m not sure which was most embarrassing – ordering brand […]

New York Stories #5 – All alone in Lufthansa First Class, Munich to Newark

Lufthansa First Class appetiser

I didn’t plan to fly Lufthansa First Class to New York last week.  I knew I would be starting my trip in Hamburg but that still opened up a lot of options.  I looked at Virgin Atlantic from London but there was no availability.  I […]

New York Stories #4 – The Lufthansa First Class Lounge at Munich

Lufthansa Munich First Class lounge 3

Lufthansa is an odd airline in many ways.  There is nothing in the least bit exciting about its economy or business class offering – it is only in recent months that they have introduced fully flat beds in business.  Their main lounges are also unexciting, […]

New York Stories #2 – Comparing Lufthansa short-haul to BA’s new tighter leg-room


As I wrote yesterday in my initial article in this series, I am not planning to write a traditional series of trip reports from my travels in recent days.  I am going to focus on a few particular themes which I found interesting and topical. […]

New York Stories #1 – The outdoor terrace at Hamburg’s lounge


I am in New York this week.  However, as the trip is very similar to the one I wrote up in detail last Spring, I don’t intend to write too much about it.  I am planning instead to run a series of posts highlighting things of […]
