Use just 50,000 Asiana Club (or 40,000 Starpoints) Miles for Lufthansa First Class – one of the most overlooked deals

Posted on April 17, 2018 by in Lufthansa Miles and More

 

If you’ve been thinking about booking a first class award ticket between Europe and the US, now’s the time to do it with Lufthansa. Asiana Club miles has long been one of the best award charts for Star Alliance redemptions. It (still) offers 50,000 miles one-way for redemptions from North America to Europe (and vice versa).

Lufthansa First Class

What’s new is that the fuel surcharges that Lufthansa charges have dropped from many European airports  – for instance it is just $141.90 in YQ from Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN) plus other departure taxes from Sweden.

Lufthansa First Class

Departing from Frankfurt Airport (FRA) will cost you more – $260.40 in YQ plus airport taxes.

You can check more European airports using ITA Matrix – some might be even lower.

Don’t forget Asiana Club is a 1:1 SPG transfer partner, so this would cost just 40k Starpoints (as you get a 5k bonus for each 20k transferred).

The award is bookable 14 days before departure – only than Lufthansa First Class will become available.
