Great Value ‘Miles & More’ Mileage Bargains – 55K/70 Business Class Return to Americas and Asia

Regular readers will know that each month the frequent flyer scheme for Lufthansa, Austrian, Swiss etc – Miles & More – offers Mileage Bargains.  I cover them once in awhile – sometimes there are some interesting destinations included, sometimes they are not so interesting.

These Mileage Bargains are essentially heavily discounted award tickets in Economy and Business Class to certain destinations. Because of the relatively high taxes and surcharges on Economy redemptions, I will only look at Business Class options from the UK. Miles & More long-haul redemptions include your feeder leg to Frankfurt or Munich.

This month, the list is excellent. The stand-out bargains in my humble opinion are Rio, Hong Kong, Seoul and Osaka for 70,000 miles RETURN in Business Class, which are typically quite expensive destinations…

    Could you confirm how I could book these flights from UK airport? I have followed the link from your article but the only options available were German airports.
