Flying Lufthansa and depositing points with ANA (had not flown with ANA before)

Hi

I've just booked a PE flight with Lufthansa, was wondering if I could deposit my miles with ANA, with out flying with them before?

I got some miles with Virgin and looking to use the miles for LHR-HND either business or first class, does anyone know availability for a pair of seat?
Had looked before either 1 availability or none (via ANA mileage account). Please advise me how to exchange a pair of seat.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can accrue miles from Lufthansa flights to ANA without ever having flown ANA.

By saying you have miles with Virgin, do you mean that you have them in your Virgin frequent flyer program? If that is the case you can't combine them with miles accrued with the ANA program, they will remain separate.

Thx CPH-Flyer for your quick reply
Then I will collect ANA miles in my upcoming flights instead of Lufthansa. Lufthansa miles ares based on fares which convert to much lower mileage.

Regarding Virgin, its another issue as I have 150k+ miles. Thx for reminding about not able transfer or combine account. I intend either to redeem voucher or domestic flights from ANA account when I visit JP.

Just remind, FYI
ANA's earning table for LH flights.

https://www.ana.co.jp/en/jp/amc/refe...ile/tk/lh.html

Deep discount economy classes , L,K,T earn only 30% of mileages.
If your ticket class isn't in this table, earning rate is 0%.

Glad to hear its 100% not the LH 4 miles/eur which mean i get 2450 miles instead of 13000 ana miles
