For those of you enrolled in Miles & More (MM), I assume that you are familiar with the monthly ‘Mileage Bargains’ that are published by the program. These bargains usually provide a 50% discount on the amount of miles needed to book Economy or Business class tickets to a select group of destinations.
For the month of May, MM members can book Business Class seats on Austrian from certain to US gateways. The eligible destinations are all in Austria including Graz, Vienna, Klagenfurt, Linz, Innsbruck and Salzburg. Departures can take place from JFK, Newark and Washington DC and travel must be completed by June 30, 2015.
The deal is also available for travel to the US that originates in Austria, with several US destinations qualifying under the deal.
Typically, an MM Business Class redemption will set you back 105,000 miles (round trip). However, with the Mileage Bargain promo, you’ll be asked to part with only 55,000 miles (plus taxes/fees).
When given an unusual opportunity where you can fly one of the best Business Class products between the US and Europe for the ‘cost’ of an Economy Ticket as far as miles are concerned, you’d be foolish not to take advantage of the deal!
The promo ends on May 30th or when inventory is depleted.
