Lufthansa has just released its list of May 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:
40,000 (was 70,000) miles Business Class from Aberdeen, Birmingham Int., London – City, London – Heathrow, Manchester to:
- Tel Aviv
40,000 (was 70,000) miles Business Class from London – City, London – Heathrow, Manchester to Doha
55,000 (was 105,000) miles Business Class from Aberdeen, Birmingham Int., London – Heathrow, Manchester to:
- New York (JFK and Newark)
55,000 (was 105,000) miles Business Class from Birmingham Int., London – City, London – Heathrow, Manchester to:
- Toronto (Pearson)
55,000 (was 105,000) miles return in Business Class from Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Miami, New York – JFK, New York – Newark, Orlando:
- Berlin – Tegel
- London – Heathrow
- St Petersburg
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 31 May 2015 and fly between 1 and 30 September 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.
