Earning Lufthansa Miles&More miles – outside of Star Alliance flights

We recently reminded you of some great value reward flights with Lufthansa, using their frequent flyer scheme, Miles&More.

miles and more star alliance

One of the key issues with Miles&More, as noted in the linked article, is that they are not particularly easy to earn. That means getting a stash to take you to meaningful redemption levels is not straightforward.

Help is at hand, however. Lufthansa is a member of Star Alliance, and while it’s common knowledge that you can earn Miles&More miles with all other Star Alliance members, you can also earn Miles&More miles on flights with a handful of non-Star Alliance airlines, as follows:
