LH L-class to BRU-DME: Will I earn miles?

Hi,

Very simple question. :-)
According to this page it sure seems I will not earn any miles.

Or is there a chance that Moscow will not be seen as a European Destination?

Brgrds,
Kris

Well, not so fast.

That flight is operated by Brussels Airlines.

It doesn't matter what codeshare fare class Lufthansa has - it matters
what Brussels Airlines' fare class is. If it is L, though, it is still zero.

Indeed, it's operated by SN. Found a similar rate on SN site and it shows booking class E. So I suppose if I want to earn miles it will be in the M&M program. (but for me their value is close to zero as well. )

I guess I was spoiled flying United & AA where you receive miles for each and every trip you make.

Yep. Welcome to the economics of intra-Europe travel on legacy EU airlines.

As I couldn't earn miles on this flight I decided I could as well burn some miles on them so I booked the flight with United miles.
Glad my next flights will take me cross-Atlantic again.
