Lufthansa has just released its list of April Mileage Bargains, allowing you to redeem your Lufthansa Miles & More miles for Lufthansa redemption flights in Economy Class and Business Class at half the mileage cost (or almost half, or sometimes better than half).
This post has a full analysis and guide to booking Mileage Bargains. In short, it’s a great opportunity to get good value long-haul Business Class flights with Lufthansa.
Given the enormous range of departure points and destinations, it’s quite hard to give comprehensive examples of available bargains, but some stand-out offers currently available from the UK and USA (and bear in mind you can easily select from various global departure points) include:
55,000 (was 105,000) miles Business Class from Birmingham Int, London City, London Heathrow, and Manchester to:
- Johannesburg (also departing from Aberdeen)
- Mumbai (also departing from Aberdeen)
70,000 (was 135,000) miles from Birmingham Int, London City, London Heathrow, and Manchester to:
55,000 (was 105,000) miles return in Business Class from Boston, Chicago, New York – Newark, Philadelphia, Seattle, Washington – Dulles to:
- Berlin – Tegel
- London (Heathrow)
- Madrid Barajas
- Moscow (Domodedovo/Vnukovo)
- St Petersburg
- Stockholm – Arlanda
55,000 (was 105,000) miles return in Business Class from Washington – Dulles to Catania
But this really is just a selection – have a look at the full range for yourself.
Importantly, with the odd exception, you need to book by 30 April 2015 and fly between 1 and 31 August 2015. Don’t stress too much about booking something before 30 April 2015 however – rest assured a further Mileage Bargains offer will be along when this one finishes, although the destinations cannot be guaranteed.
And don’t forget our guide to booking Mileage Bargains.
Rule number 1 of spending miles is that you will invariably get better value in Business Class. Never is this more apparent than with Lufthansa – so think very seriously about making the most of the Mileage Bargains route when it comes along.
While you can of course take a look at the Economy Class Mileage Bargains (they are on the linked page, with the Business Class flights), you will get immeasurably better value if you save your points for a Business Class flight.
