Lufthansa Miles&More has announced a restructure of earning miles in the program. From March 12, 2018, it will move to a revenue based program, with points earning based on the price of a ticket. This makes a change from the currnet combination of booking class and distance travelled.
The changes will affect those travelling on the services a range of partners, including Lufthansa, Swiss, Austrian Airlines, United Airlines and Air Canada. Note that It only affects tickets booked after the cut over date. Any tickets booked before March 12 will be awarded points under the current system.
Revenue Based Earnings
For tickets booked from March 12, Miles&More will base the points earning on the total cost of the ticket in Euros. This figure will then be multiplied by a factor dependent on the passenger’s frequent flyer status (and in some cases the airline flown). This calculation will determine the number of award miles given.
For a base member, the factor that will be applied is 4. That is they will multiply the fare by 4 to calculate the number of points.
If you are a Frequent Traveller, Senator or HON Circle Member, this factor is 6 for flights operated by most airlines. This includes Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, United Airlines, Air Canada, LOT Polish Airlines, Croatia Airlines, Adria Airlines and Air Dolomiti. For flights operated by Eurowings, Brussels Airlines or another Miles & More partner airline, the fare is multiplied by a factor of 5
