For the last few months – possibly as a response to those who complain that their taxes and fuel surcharges are crazy – Lufthansa has been running a monthly list of discounted routes for collectors of Miles & More miles.
The March list of discounted Miles & More redemptions from the UK is here.
Given how high the taxes are, the European redemptions are still not great value. Neither are the long-haul Economy destinations.
Of the long-haul routes, Abu Dhabi for 40,000 miles return in Business is a good deal, especially as the booking period covers Easter. Remember that it is a very short bus or taxi ride down to Dubai.
The following routes are also massively reduced in Business Class:
You need to book by 31st March, for travel completed by 16th April.
Whilst Lufthansa’s business class is not the greatest (unless you get a 747-800 with the new fully flat seat), you will also get the discounted prices on Austrian and Swiss where they fly the same route. Austrian is rolling out its fully flat business class seat and I think Swiss is now 100% fully flat.
