Are you less than an expert when it comes to award redemption? You might want to take some advice and look at Lufthansa’s “Fly Smart” awards program. Miles & More members can use Fly Smart awards to obtain discount award travel to destinations around the world. Fly Smart awards can only be booked online, and award travel is primarily available only in economy class; business class is available only to certain destinations.
Award travel starts at 15,000 miles and tops out at 90,000 miles, and is available on Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, LOT Polish Airlines and Condor. Miles & More members can fly within Europe, South America or South East Asia for 15,000 miles in economy class, or to North America, Southern Africa or India for just 50,000 miles in economy class. Travel to Central America or the Caribbean will cost you 60,000 miles. You can even go down under to Australia for 90,000 in economy.
But keep in mind: Fly Smart awards are only available online and the booking period is between two weeks and two days before the desired departure date. Intercontinental awards require a minimum stay of seven days. Companion awards are not available in combination with Fly Smart awards.
