Every month, Lufthansa Miles & More announces a few destinations that are available for booking during that month at a substantial discount to the usual number of miles required.
It’s best to ignore the short haul offers, since the taxes and fuel surcharges are incredibly high with Miles & More (occasionally HIGHER than the cash cost of the ticket!). But there can be some interesting long haul bargains, particularly in premium cabins.
With that in mind, the latest list of discounted redemptions is now available. You need to book between 1-30 June, 2017. However, the travel period is 1 October – 15 November 2017.
It is important to note that these “Meilenschnaeppchen” bookings are completely non-refundable.
Here is the list of long haul destinations…
- Philadelphia, Washington DC, Houston in Economy – 30,000 miles
Middle East / India and Africa
- Doha, Bahrain, Addis Abeba, Tehran, Cairo, Jeddah, Damman, Kuwait in Business – 40,000 miles
- Kuwait, Riyadh, Bahrain, Doha, Damman in Economy – 25,000 miles
- Delhi, Mumbai in Economy – 30,000 miles
- Nanjing, Qingdao in Economy – 40,000 miles
I’m very disappointed to only see long haul options in Economy class. The only Business Class options are to the Middle East…
