It’s time for our monthly round-up of discounted redemption routes available via the Lufthansa Miles & More programme.
The May list of discounted Miles & More redemptions from the UK is here. You must book by May 31th for travel by June 16th.
As I say each month, given how high the taxes are, the European redemptions are still not great value. Neither are the long-haul Economy destinations. Business class redemptions, on the other hand, do offer genuine value. Note the reappearance of Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Doha this month.
The following long-haul routes are reduced for May, often sharply, in Business Class:
- Abu Dhabi
- Addis Abeba
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.
