There should also be a change in the status miles themselves: these are apparently to be completely abolished and exchanged for a point system. How exactly this should look like is not yet known. In the future, according to the letter, there should be the possibility of becoming a frequent traveler for life with a long loyalty. So far, this was only possible with senators. The official announcement of more details about what's new at Miles & More is expected in the coming days.
Anyone who calls their own status may enjoy lounge access (in the picture the AUA Senator Lounge) or early boarding (photo: Austrian Airlines).
Miles & More was founded on January 1, 1993 with seven partners in Germany – since September 2014, Miles & More GmbH has been an independent wholly-owned subsidiary of Deutsche Lufthansa AG. The program now has more than 300 worldwide partners – including around 40 airlines and hotels or companies from the rental car, cruise, banking and insurance sectors, subscriptions and books, entertainment & media as well as shopping and lifestyle. Miles & More GmbH also operates nine Lufthansa WorldShop stores at the airports of Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin-Tegel, Hamburg and Dusseldorf.
