Swiss has announced that it will be closing the Senator and Business Class Lounges located in Zurich’s Terminal A.
The closing is scheduled for August 27, and will last through April 2018.
According to SWISS, once the renovations are complete the Lounges will reflect the styling and concept of the Lounges that are located in Terminal E. In addition, more seating will be installed and workstations will be updated with modern amenities. So it will be worth the wait!
For now, passengers can use the Lounges located in Terminal B and E. Star Alliance Gold members, along with Miles & More Senators and those traveling in Lufthansa Group Business Class can also use the Aspire Lounge and ‘Coffee To Fly’.
Miles & More Frequent Travelers and Star Alliance Business Class passengers can use the SWISS Lounges, but cannot access the Aspire or Coffee To Fly lounge options.
Finally, a promo I actually qualify for with upcoming travel….
Miles & More has announced a small promo that will award members up to 2,000 award miles for flights taken between August 1 and October 31, 2017.
If you have flights scheduled during this time frame, you’ll earn an extra 500 miles for 2 flights and 2,000 bonus miles if you have 4 flights during the promo period. Like I said, it’s not much, but it’s something. You can’t earn more miles if you have more than 4 segments scheduled during the promo. 4 flights are the maximum that are eligible for the bonus miles.
The credit can be earned on flights operated by Lufthansa, Austrian, Brussels, SWISS, Eurowings, Croatia and Luxair. Fare class doesn’t matter (award tickets do not qualify). Multiple segments within an itinerary count as individual flights (i.e. flying ORD to JNB via ZRH counts as 2 flights).
The only catch is that you have to register by August 17 in order to be eligible, and it appears to be a targeted offer being made by email. There’s no link that I can provide that would take you to the registration page, so check your email/spam folders for the offer.
Lufthansa Miles & More is running a Worldshop promotion between now and October 31 which will award its winner 1,000,000 miles.
Entry is easy…..
Simply purchase an item, any item, from the inflight WorldShop Catalog during your flight and you are automatically entered to win. Just make sure to give the cabin crew your Miles & More card so that they can register your purchase and entry you into the contest.
Not traveling on Lufthansa during the contest period?
That’s no problem. You can still enter the contest by sending and email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 October 2017. All you need to do is write ‘Million Miles’ in the subject field and enter your Miles & More number in the body of the email.
The winner will be selected on November 1 and notified via email.
If you are a Miles & More member, you’ve probably already clicked off the box asking for the monthly newsletter to be emailed to you. However if you never subscribed to the newsletter, you can now earn 500 miles if you sign up to receive it.
If you have never joined the Miles & More program and have been considering it, you will be eligible to earn the 500 miles when you sign up and agree to receive the newsletter via email.
You can update your preferences and sign up for the newsletter by using this link. If you wish to sign up for a Miles & More account, please follow this link. The miles should be credited within one week.
Miles & More is running a campaign with Rimowa that awards members a 10x miles bonus when they purchase Rimowa luggage through the Miles & More WorldShop.
As long as you purchase your Rimowa in a WorldShop store or online at WorldShop.eu you’ll be eligible for the bonus miles. According to the terms and conditions not every Rimowa model is eligible. However, when I checked the promotion’s website, it showed over 80 Rimowa models as being qualified for the deal.
You don’t have to do anything special to qualify for the promo. Simply show your Miles & More card when purchasing the piece, or enter it during check out if ordering the piece through the WorldShop website.
