Dear FTers, I feel encouraged by today's court ruling which declared illegal the short notice with which Miles&More increased mileage requirements as of 1 January 2012 (http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/miles...l#post18211637
) The German court said that LH were well within their rights to increase the "price" of long-haul business redemptions but should have given at least four months' notice (rather than one).
I am tempted to challenge the legality of FB's April 09 changes but two things made me think twice:
1. The Miles&More ruling said four months' notice would have been required, but another court might find three months are enough (and FB did announce the changes almost three months before they came into effect).
2. Any claims I may have had in theory may have lapsed in the three years since April 2009.
What do you think? What are my chances of success in the light of today's Miles&More ruling?
