    Question Miles and more by Star Alliiance

    Has anybody signed for Miles and More program? I had 8 flights in 6 weeks and they were all with star alliance airlines and it also seems that I find the cheapest tickets to Europe with those companies anyway. I'd like to find out if it's really worth it?

    My experience is:

    You get less and less for your air miles. It's kinda a triple whammy, especially when we're talking about flying on SAA -

    • SAA has increased the number of miles needed to get on the same flight over the years
    • The "airport taxes" portion of the ticket which are not covered by your miles and has to be paid for has increased as a percentage of the cost of the ticket.
    • The number of miles you get on a flight has been steadily whittled away with a complex range of "cheaper" tickets.

    The long and short of it is collect the miles if you're flying on a Star Alliance carrier by all means, but there's little sense in incurring an extra cost to chase those miles.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
