Where to credit, TK or LH
Hello Lucky, I would like some advice from the expert. So, I mostly fly LH due to living near FRA, but I credit everything to TK, due to its easy (re)qualification requirements for StarGold; and when I am not flying LH, I’m mostly flying TK. I have two upcoming long haul flights on LH. If I credit them to TK, it will put me over 80K in the past 12 months and get me E+ status, which offers upgrade vouchers that I can use for future long haul flights; LH just sent me an offer for triple miles on premium economy flights by the end of Feb, 2016, so if I credit the two flights to LH, it won’t get me any status (I have 0 status miles with them, over 100K award miles though), but it will get me around 50K extra award miles.
Which one do you think is of more value? The upgrade vouchers from TK or 50K extra award miles from LH? I already have TK gold, so other than the upgrade vouchers, the E+ status does not really bring anything new, but I do fly a lot between Europe and Asia, and given how easy it is to re-qualify for E+, I will have 2 vouchers every year until TK changes the rules. On the other hand, 50K miles is not something to just throw away easily…could you offer some advice? (due to my strange flying pattern, if I credit these 2 flights to LH, then i will lose the best window to get E+, I will probably have to wait until end of next year to have another shot of getting it)
