Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend to book with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

  1. Better Customer Service
    In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

    If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.

    This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
  2. Baggage Fees
    Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

Mileage

Long haul tickets are issued in booking class A while short haul tickets are booking class J. As first class tickets should, this booking class gives you a huge bonus on top of your travel distance.

  1. how to possible get 40k miles with miles more? since book with Lufthansa group is only 4 miles per Euro

    • Yes, award miles are calculated revenue-based. Status miles however are calculated based on booking classes.

      Small workaround: Try to book these fares on united.com. If you can find the fares through their search then award mile will be equal to the status miles.
