The (Unofficial) Miles&More Mileage Calculator

Many of our readers probably collect their miles at the frequent flyer program of Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian, LOT, and some other small partner airlines – Miles&More. Unfortunately, it has become a bit difficult to calculate how many status and award miles are likely to be credited to you and the official Miles&More mileage calculator is no longer available via the website, as it used to be, but only on the Miles&More app (for a small selection of airlines).

That’s why we simply developed an unofficial Miles&More mileage calculator ourselves, which should give you a good overview of how many miles you should get for your flights:

Info

We do not guarantee the correctness of the calculation! The result is to be seen as a rough guide and must always be recalculated by hand for a final decision.

The mileage calculator is currently still in the beta stage. If you discover an error, please send an email to ditmar@Travel-Dealz.eu with your routing.

Please use the following format to enter your flights:

Operating airline: Booking class: Flight segment(s): Issuing airline: Flight price
  • Operating airline: IATA code of the operating airline, e.g. LH for Lufthansa
  • Booking class: booking class of the flights, e.g. K
  • Flight segment(s): IATA codes of the airports used, separated by a hyphen. E.g. FRA-ZRH-HKG for a oneway flight and FRA-ZRH-HKG-ZRH-FRA for a round trip flight from Frankfurt to Hong Kong via Zurich.
  • Issuing airline (optional): Only important if the tickets were issued by the Lufthansa Group, as the calculation is then based on the ticket price. Otherwise, you can skip this part.
  • Flight price (optional): Only important if the flights were issued by the Lufthansa Group, as the calculation is then based on the ticket price. Otherwise, you can skip this part. The price should be entered in euros (excluding taxes).

How the Miles are Calculated

The status miles are calculated by multiplying the distance of the flight by a certain percentage, which depends on the operating airline and booking class. For example, flights in Lufthansa booking class K only give 25% of the distance. For flights within Europe, there are often only fixed mileage values – e.g. 125 miles for any flight within Europe in SWISS booking class K.

Award miles have been awarded at Miles&More based on the ticket price for some years now, if the ticket was issued by an airline of the Lufthansa Group, recognizable by ticket numbers starting with 220 (Lufthansa), 724 (Swiss), 257 (Austrian), or 082 (Brussels Airlines).

For tickets that have been issued by other airlines, even if some of the flights are operated by Lufthansa, the award miles will continue to be calculated based on the distance in the same way as the status miles.

Executive Bonus

At Miles & More, status members receive an additional 25% of the distance as an executive bonus when they fly with the following airlines:

  • Air Canada
  • Air Dolomiti
  • ANA
  • Austrian
  • Brussels Airlines
  • Croatia Airlines
  • Eurowings
  • LOT
  • Luxair
  • Lufthansa
  • United
  • SWISS

If the ticket was issued by the Lufthansa Group, the flight price won’t be multiplied by 4 to calculate the award miles, but instead by 5. For the following airlines, the price will even be multiplied by 6:

  • Air Canada
  • Air Dolomiti
  • ANA
  • Austrian
  • Brussels Airlines
  • Croatia Airlines
  • LOT
  • Lufthansa
  • United
  • SWISS
