Miles & More status levels

Anyone with a lot of status miles in their account fares even better - and in greater comfort, faster and with many privileges. The Miles & More programme provides for several different frequent flyer levels, all of which are valid for at least two years.

When you first enroll, you become a Miles & More member. You will receive your regular Miles & More plastic card as soon as you have earned one award mile with one of our Miles & More partners and this has been credited to your mileage account. You will not need your temporary Miles & More paper card any more after that.
