I joined the Lufthansa "Miles & More" mileage program and not long afterward took a roundtrip flight from Los Angeles to London on Air New Zealand (A partner airline in the program.) only to discover upon my return that Lufthansa's Miles and More program....'DOES NOT GIVE MILEAGE CREDIT FOR several ticket classes.
Mine was a K Class ticket (Economy). So if your not paying a certain class fair, you get no mileage credit at all for flights traveled. None!
This was not mentioned in their Miles and More "advertising" although there was mention of this in the fine print of their "Terms and Conditions." without specific details as to the affected classes. Looking over the mileage requirements to buy anything with your miles, the few bits of garbage on offer, and the absurd number of miles required for everything. I thought I would warn anyone considering joining the Miles and More program. Oh! Any accumulated mileage is only good for 1 year.Mileage programs have really become increasingly less worth joining unless you in fact are truly a frequent flyer. Otherwise, the imposed restrictions and rules really make them no more than a “Come On” to get passengers.
