Here’s another huge change to the bmi Diamond Club program. Starting May 1, first class awards will cost 2.5x as much as coach awards, as opposed to 2x as much. This applies to both miles only awards and cash and points awards. Furthermore, Lufthansa first class awards will incur a 10,000 mile surcharge for each direction of travel.
It’s interesting to note that one could previously not redeem cash and points awards for Lufthansa first class, so this makes it possible once again. Something tells me people still aren’t happy about the change. 😉
(Thanks to Lewis for bringing this to my attention)
