Miles & More has announced to postpone the introduction of the status points system by one year, hence to 2022. Although Lufthansa communicates this in a manner that could be understood as favour towards members, we do not really consider the introduction of that points system as a deterioration of the program, but just an overdue move to separate the reward and status currency – something others like British Airways have been doing for 30 years. The real reason for that postponement is though purely operational since Miles & More will extend the status of elite members set to expire at the end of this year by one additional year.
