Bad news for Eurowings frequent flyers: The program Boomerang Club will be halted on June 30 and clients are suggested an “upgrade” to Miles & More. What Lufthansa exactly means when talking about such “upgrade” risks though remaining a mystery to the average Boomerang Club member: Instead of 10 miles per EUR spent, one will then earn only 4 miles per EUR and award flights within Europe will then cost 35,000 miles per roundtrip instead of 10,000 miles for a one-way flight. Hence, this rather corresponds to a fivefold devaluation, what even the Russian rouble hasn’t managed. As Eurowings partners also in some other Star Alliance programs, one is slightly better off there – but won’t be able to renew with the generosity of the Boomerang Club there, either.
