    I'm frequently asked about Lufthansa's mileage expiration policy. Most airlines publish pretty straightforward mileage expiration policies, though Lufthansa is an exception. In general Lufthansa Miles & More miles expire 36 months after they're issued. At least that's the simple answer. The slightly longer answer (which works in our favor) is that they expire at the end of the quarter 36 months after they're issued. In other words, if you earn miles in October 2014 they expire in December 2017. Unlike with other airlines, that policy is based on when the miles are earned and not based on when you last had mileage activity. With the major US programs you can keep your miles "alive" just by having some qualifying activity every so often (usually every ~18 months). With Lufthansa, however, miles typically expire regardless of when your last activity was, but rather exclusively based on when they were earned.
