4.1 Terms and conditions of booking
Upgrade awards can only be booked for the next highest class of service. The number of miles required to pay for the upgrade award depends on the booking class of the ticket. Please note that the mileage levels stated apply to one route, i.e. one flight coupon. If several routes/flight coupons are required for the journey, the mileage levels are cumulative.
The requirement for an upgrade award is a fully paid-for flight, booked via www.lufthansa.com or one of the Miles & More online platforms, for which the ticket has already been issued (with the exception of flight award tickets). Consequently, all routes for which an upgrade is to be booked must be confirmed in advance in the number class. Upgrades can only be booked for confirmed routes and are subject to availability in Premium Economy Class, Business Class or First Class. On a European domestic flight, an upgrade is only possible in conjunction with an intercontinental Business Class upgrade and is included free of charge. With Lufthansa, Premium Economy upgrades will generally only be offered on intercontinental flights.
With an electronic upgrade (eUpgrade), a waiting-list booking can also be made. This is possible with Austrian Airlines Group, LOT Polish Airlines, Lufthansa and SWISS.
Upgrades on group bookings are not always possible online. These can only be requested via your local Miles & More Service Team.
With LOT Polish Airlines, special terms and conditions apply for upgrade awards from Premium Economy Class to Business Class. Please find out more about these from your local Service Centre. Unfortunately, upgrade awards from Economy Class to Premium Economy Class are not currently available on LOT Polish Airlines.
4.2 Advance booking time limits and payment
For flights with Austrian Airlines Group, LOT Polish Airlines (not for flights in Premium Economy Class), Lufthansa and Swiss, an electronic upgrade (eUpgrade) can be booked up to three hours prior to departure.This deadline may vary, in some circumstances, from destination to destination, as it can also depend on other factors such as catering orders. The departure must be from a destination at which an eUpgrade is possible. Otherwise an upgrade must be issued in paper form. You can obtain information on these destinations from your local Miles & More Service Team.
If your upgrade award can only be issued in paper form, you must make your reservation at least seven working days before the desired flight date. A booking has to be made at least four or more working days in advance of the desired flight date. The necessary miles will be automatically debited from your mileage account once the reservation has been made. In the case of waiting list bookings, the miles are only deducted when the upgrade is confirmed.
Infants (under two years old) can accompany you free of charge as long as they do not occupy a seat.
