After Lufthansa copied the mileage credit in its new revenue-based Miles & More program in a very hastily manner from Air France KLM, it seems that the calculations were redone nevertheless more precisely in the meantime, leading to the conclusion that the value of 4 miles per EUR is not really the appropriate one, given the significantly higher award levels compared to other programs. And the mistake has been corrected quickly, at least temporarily: Online bookings of Lufthansa flights until May 31 and travels completed by August 30 qualify for 50% bonus miles. This reprieve applies, however, only to online bookings, only for Lufthansa flights (hence not for Swiss, Austrian or Brussels Airlines) and not for members in Switzerland or Austria.
