Why to achieve another status?

Being Frequent traveller, Senator or HON Circle helps you to travel more comfortable with the member airlines. This includes access to airport lounges, simpler booking, pre-filled forms, and many more.

Becoming Frequent Traveller, Senator or HON Circle however comes for a price. It means that you will sometimes not book the cheapest flight anymore, but one of the partner airlines that allow you to collect status miles. You also will start to consider, that even within the Miles & More airlines not each booking will provide you with the same amount of status miles. Typically, you earn much more miles, if you book in one of the more expensive booking classes.
