Miles&More: 50 Additional Status Points for Selected Long-Haul Flights in Business & First Class in 2024

shanghai china

Since January 2024, Miles&More has implemented a new points system (originally announced for 2021). Instead of status miles, there are now Points, Qualifying Points, and HON Circle Points. It does not matter which booking class was chosen nor to which specific destination you’re flying. The only distinctions are between continental vs. intercontinental flights and travel class.

At least in theory. As part of a special promotion, Miles&More is now awarding additional status points for selected flights in business & first class. You get 50 additional Points, Qualifying Points, and HON Circle Points for each flight segment. This equates to a bonus of 25% (business) or 17% (first class).

The offer is valid for flights from July 1 to December 31, 2024, to a total of 9 long-haul destinations in North America, South America, and Asia. The selected destinations are:

  • Buenos Aires
  • Hong Kong
  • Los Angeles1
  • Beijing
  • San Francisco
  • Sao Paulo
  • Singapore
  • Shanghai
  • Tokyo1

1 -On the offer page, this destination is only listed under Austrian destinations. We assume that the additional miles are also available with Lufthansa & Swiss, but this has not yet been confirmed.

On the website, Shanghai Hongqiao is mistakenly listed as a destination for Lufthansa and Swiss. This is obviously an error, and Pudong Airport is meant, as there are no long-haul flights from SHA.

In case you want to take advantage of this promotion and don’t have a flight booked to any of those destinations yet, you could take a closer look at these deals:


There are no fine print details on the Austrian site regarding this promotion. Therefore, the currently known conditions are as follows:

  • Travel period: July 1 to December 31, 2024
  • No registration is necessary. The points will automatically be credited to the account if the Miles&More number has been properly entered.
  • Valid for both new and existing bookings
  • Apparently valid multiple times per account (there is no mention anywhere of the contrary)
