Earning miles and Points

Miles

Your miles are calculated according to the booking method chosen.

Calculation by airfare1

The following applies to flights booked via the booking system of an airline in the Lufthansa Group (Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Eurowings and Brussels Airlines):

miles = airfare x 4 (or x 6 for members with frequent flyer status)


This calculation method also applies to flights booked via a travel agency or online travel agency, providing your ticket number begins with the numbers 220 (Lufthansa), 724 (SWISS), 257 (Austrian Airlines) or 082 (Brussels Airlines), or it is a ticket issued by the airline Eurowings. You’ll generally find your ticket number in your confirmation email or on your booking receipt.

Please note that the ticket price does not include any paid upgrades or other additional services, such as a seat allocation or excess baggage.

Calculation according to the booking class system

If you book via the booking system of another airline or through a travel agency or online travel agency and the first three digits of your ticket number are not 220 (Lufthansa), 724 (SWISS), 257 (Austrian Airlines) or 082 (Brussels Airlines) and it is not a Eurowings airline ticket, the miles will be calculated based on fixed mileage amounts or according to the flight distance and the booking class.

Airfare = ticket price + supplements charged by the Miles & More partner airline

Points

You’ll earn Points on all flights operated by United and United Express. Two criteria are used to determine the number of Points you earn on United and United Express flights: the travel class and whether it is a continental or intercontinental flight.

Number of Points per flight segment

  Economy Class Premium Economy Class Business Class
Continental flights 20 20 40
Intercontinental flights 60 80 200

A continental flight is a flight segment for which the departure and arrival airports are on the same continent. For example, if you fly from Germany to Spain, both the departure and arrival airports are within Europe, and the flight therefore counts as a continental flight. Flights within Austria, Germany or Switzerland also count as continental flights.

 

An intercontinental flight is a flight segment for which the departure and arrival airports are on different continents. For example, if you fly from Germany to the USA, the departure and arrival airports are on different continents (Europe and North America). The flight segment therefore counts as an intercontinental flight.

 

Domestic flights count as continental flights. Please note that Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia count as part of the European zone, which means that flights from Germany to Tunisia, for example, count as continental flights.
