Lufthansa Awards via LifeMiles
Does anyone know if Lufthansa awards (at least in F) are delayed on the LifeMiles site? It is exactly 14 days from my departure date and the site doesn’t match United or Aeroplan whatsoever. I see availability in F from FRA to EWR and IAH and from MUC to ORD and IAD, but none of it is showing on the LifeMiles site. I have even called the United desk to ensure that this isn’t phantom availability. However, LifeMiles agents don’t see this. Any help is greatly appreciated!
[USER=1623]@nc203[/USER] You could try calling in but lifemiles agents are usually able to book what is displayed on the website.If you have a friend fluent in Spanish it might be helpful.
[USER=79]@Gaurav[/USER] I appreciate the response. I’ve called LifeMiles agents to check several different routings that appear on both United and Aeroplan. It wasn’t as difficult as I had anticipated. However, they all noted that they were not seeing availability. The only award that shows for the date (3/13) in F that I have found is DUS to EWR. It also looks like some other dates don’t show availability that again shows on United and Aeroplan. I’m just wondering if LifeMiles doesn’t have the same access to Lufthansa availability as other carriers, or again, if there is some kind of delay. Thanks!
