Here are three bits of Miles & More news which didn’t justify a post in their own right but which are worth putting together in one big Lufty fest ….
… the May list of discounted ‘meilenschnaeppchen’ redemptions has been published.
Take a look here. The list of long-haul business class destinations includes Abu Dhabi, Accra, Addis Abeba, Amman, Bahrain, Beirut, Cairo, Damman, Doha, Dubai, Jeddah, Kuala Lumpur, Kuwait, Muscat, Riyadh, Tokyo and Washington.
In general these are for travel up to the end of June. Lufthansa appears to be experimenting, however, because some of the above destinations are ONLY for travel in September. This is good news for people who struggle to get away at short notice.
… until June 20th you can buy Miles & More miles with a 20% bonus. The annual cap has also been raised to 20,000 miles as part of this promotion.
The link to buy miles is here. I would only do this if you only need a very small amount to top up your account as it is unlikely to make much sense otherwise. Even with the 20% bonus, you are paying €475 for 24,000 miles.
…. PartnerPlusBenefit, the Lufthansa-run small business loyalty scheme, is offering double points on all Swiss flights from London City until September 2014. You need to register for this offer under the ‘promotions’ section of your PartnerPlusBenefit account.
