it all depends for what you can use your miles for: if you end up dumping them on buch.de for .3 cent a mile, dont change payback points into miles. If you have to book some Y,C.... tickets (cause you need to go somewhere on a weekday and return the next day.. or upgradable fares or like to travel to odd destinations like Lebanon or Eritrea where there is never any sale) you can definitively get more of your miles than 1 cent per mile..
Since Aug. 1st it ist clear that M&M doesnt really care about people who buy mostly cheap leasure fares that are competitive with LCCs anyway...
