‘Miles & More’ redemption savers for April launched

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 April list of discounted Miles & More redemptions from the UK is here.  You must book by April 30th for travel by May 15th.

As I wrote last month as well, given how high the taxes are, the European redemptions are still not great value.  Neither are the long-haul Economy destinations.

Lufthansa A380

The following routes are reduced, often sharply, in Business Class:

  • Abuja
  • Addis Abeba
  • Algiers
  • Atlanta
  • Bangalore
  • Beijing
  • Bogota
  • Chicago
  • Dallas
  • Delhi
  • Detroit
  • Doha
  • Jeddah
  • Johannesburg
  • Khartoum
  • Mumbai
  • Nagoya
  • Nanjing
  • Orlando
  • Osaka
  • Philadelphia
  • Seoul
  • Shenyang
  • Tokyo
  • Toronto
  • Tunis

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.

    “meilenschnaeppchen” have been running for a few years now as evidenced by this old FT thread http://goo.gl/fA4Kj so I doubt it is in response to pressure from Miles collectors. It would be good if that was the case though!

    The usual suspects are there again this month Dallas, Bombay, Japan etc.
