Miles & More Mileage Bargains (Meilenschnaeppchen) discounted mileage awards are something we don’t cover regularly here on FFB like we do on our Canadian site. However this month is a different story as we see some offers better than the usual 50 to 51% off award flights. Yes, there’s the usual awards on Austrian, LOT, Lufthansa and Swiss but this month we see Eurowings Discover on the list and the discount for flying them is even bigger.
You can fly on Eurowings Discover routes between North America and Frankfurt or Munich for 75% off! That’s right, 75% off and that’s all cabin classes. Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class. With this month’s deals you can fly on the airline’s North American routes for only 15,000 miles in Economy Class round trip (reg. 60,000 miles), 20,000 miles for Premium Economy (reg. 80,000) or 28,000 for Business Class (reg. 112,000 miles). FYI Eurowings Discover’s A330 aircraft have lie flat business class seats and a decent looking premium economy cabin. It’s not a glamorous business class like what you find on Qatar Airways but only 28,000 miles for a Transatlantic flight? Take it if you can! Here’s wishing you could still convert Marriott Bonvoy points to Miles & More!
All offers need to be booked by December 31 for travel as follows:
- Travel between Calgary and Frankfurt from May 23 to December 31, 2022
- Travel between Fort Myers and Frankfurt from March 28 to December 31, 2022

Going back to my comment above about wishing we could still convert Marriott Bonvoy points to Miles & More – if we still could I would have seriously considered the Eurowings Discover offer to fly from Calgary to Frankfurt for those 28,000 miles (69,000 Marriott points) as here in Canada we don’t have a lot of options for earning Miles & More miles. We don’t have a credit card like those of you who live in the U.S. However, if you don’t have the Miles & More credit card nor a lot of Miles & More miles there is one hotel loyalty program you can convert points from and that’s Radisson Rewards. The conversion rate is terrible, at 10 to 1, which means you need 280,000 Radisson Rewards points to get the 28,000 points required for the Eurowings business class redemption.
The best option here for these award flights is if you are already a Miles & More member who has been collecting miles and have enough in your account to take advantage of them. Or, close to enough miles and can convert some Radisson Rewards points to get you over the hump. I should mention you are probably looking at a few hundred dollars in fees and taxes on top of the miles as well.
