‘Miles and More’ discounted awards for October launched

It’s time for our monthly round-up of discounted redemption routes available via the Lufthansa Miles & More programme.

The October list of discounted Miles & More redemptions from the UK is here.  (Change the drop down box to UK if it doesn’t do it automatically.)  You must book by October 31st for travel by, in most cases, 16th November.

As I say each month, given how high the taxes are, the European redemptions are still not great value.   You also need to select direct flights to get the discounted price – London to Munich to Cologne does not give you the discounted London – Cologne price, for example.

The long-haul Economy destinations are not the greatest deals either.  Business class redemptions, on the other hand, do offer genuine value.

Lufthansa A380

The following long-haul routes are reduced for October, often sharply, in Business Class:

  • Abuja
  • Accra
  • Addis Abeba
  • Algiers
  • Atlanta
  • Bangalore
  • Cairo
  • Dallas
  • Delhi
  • Detroit
  • Doha
  • Dubai
  • Lagos
  • Libreville
  • Muscat
  • Osaka
  • Seoul
  • Tokyo
  • Tunis

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.
