    Is there any way to recover expired miles? I had about 8k miles expire at the beginning of 2011 because of no activity on my Miles and More account.
    Any help would be much appreciated!

    I don't think you can recover miles once they have expired. M&M miles don't expire because of no activity on your account but because they are more than 36 months old. You can prevent them from expiring by holding M&M status or an M&M credit card in many countries.

    Some programs do let you recover expired miles (for a fee), but I don't know anything about M&M. Does anyone know if they offer anything?

    However, even if they do, I suspect the recovery cost isn't worth it for just 8000 miles.
