I write quite a bit about Miles & More, the Lufthansa frequent flyer scheme, on Head for Points as it is the logical place for a UK reader to put their miles from Star Alliance flights.
It is not necessarily the best place, but that is a different article for a different day. I cover much of the ground on picking the best Star Alliance frequent flyer scheme in this article.
Whilst I covered my recent Lufthansa First Class redemption (see seat photo above), I haven’t written much about how to get the best from the Miles & More programme. That’s why this post from US site MileValue caught my eye.
It is worth a look if you’re looking to redeem Miles & More miles. For example, I didn’t know that there are no fuel surcharges via Miles & More when you fly on US Airways to Europe. I had also forgotten that LOT, the Polish airline, is now flying 787’s to some destinations with fully flat beds in business class.
Ignore all the credit card references in that article, as they relate to the US credit card only. The UK Miles & More card is now back to its pathetic 1,500 mile sign-up bonus! You could, however, get 25,000 Miles & More miles by getting the SPG Amex under the current 20,000 bonus points sign-up deal and transferring them to Miles & More.
