Basics about the evoucher:

Number of eVouchers needed per segment:
- Upgrade a shorthaul segment = 1 eVoucher
- Upgrade a longhaul segment (Longhaul= LH400-799)
- From Economy Class (other than K, L, T) to Business Class = 2 eVouchers
- From Economy Class K, L, T to Business Class = 3 eVouchers
- From Economy Class (other than K, L, T) to Premium Economy Class = 1 eVoucher
- From Economy Class K, L, T to Premium Economy Class = 2 eVouchers
- From Premium Economy G, E to Business Class = 1 eVoucher
- From Premium Economy N to Business Class = 2 eVouchers
- From Business Class to First Class = 2 eVouchers (although the website says 3 eVouchers, it will be corrected in due course)

Upgrade awards may be booked online with LH, OS, LX, SN, LO and Discover, or you can call to upgrade.
Alternatively, you can book at the check-in counter. Not all airlines offer immediate upgrades at the airport.
Evouchers can be used on any ticketed PNR, even if the flight operates after the date of expiry of the evoucher.
Evouchers can be redeemed with all Star Alliance partners - depending on the destination, airline, travel class and booking class.
For a list of award regions go to https://www.miles-and-more.com/row/e...formation.html and scroll down to select Your worldwide flight destinations with Miles & More.


How long do eVouchers remain valid?
- All eVouchers are valid for 24 months.
- none of your eVouchers will expire until 31.03.2024. This also applies to eVouchers that were re-credited after the cancellation of a flight.

With an eVoucher, you travel one class higher [link to general eVoucher information]

2 eVoucher

Dear fellow Flyertalk'ers,

I have two LH eVouchers that will expire June 30, 2013 and I am not flying on LH over the next few month. So I was wondering if I can use it for anything else?

A gentle reminder that the only place for trading/giveaways of upgrade instruments on FT is CC:

I've been on a waitlist for evoucher upgrades from Y to I on two LH flights next month. Today I realised that one of those flights is showing award availability, but my waitlist hasn't been cleared. Anyone experienced this before? Will calling M&M help?

Upgrades come from a different I bucket than awards. Don't ask me why Also the combo of where the ticket was purchased and the combination of origin and destination plays a role. Sending it to the queue that normally clears award or revenue waitlists doesn't help either

You just have to be patient and wait for the regular inventory recalcs T-(1-7days): daily
T-(7-28 days): weekly
T-(28+days): monthly

Oh didn't realise there were 2 separate I buckets!

Anyway, EF shows both flights as J9 C9 D9 Z9, so hopefully it'll work out.

Oliver,
Do you know if redeeming e-vouchers is linked to married segments process or it is not?

For example if you want to upgrade a sector that is not available as a married segment while it's still available as separate segment. I'm talking here mainly about LX upgrading from Z fare to first class using e-vouchers.

I think MSC does play a role (with LH)... I have a few segments on WL where I is wide open. The ticket is AAA-BBB-CCC-BBB-DDD. A-B cleared instantly, B-C-B is open but went on WL for me, B-D is available, but a day flight which I'm happy to leave in whY.

LX I have no clue, but I know for sure LX BSL is happy to investigate and help with any LX operated flights on WL @:-)

With LH it does play a role I think based solely on my own experiences.

LX I am not sure how their information system treats this. I do find that LX is more flexible in opening up WL unless the flight is heavily sold in F (talking about upgrade Z/D/C>F).

You need to be on FT for 180 days and have posted a minimum of 180 times.

Lufthansa eVoucher for upgrade on United flight?

Quick question:

My mum has Lufthansa Star Alliance Silver and with her upgrade in card received two eVouchers. Is it possible to redeem these on a United flight for an upgrade from Economy to Business? The ticket class on the United Flight is X, and it is for a flight in May to LHR from EWR.

Thanks in advance for the help! I would have called Miles and More but they are closed today.

Cheers

I guess your mother has been upgraded from silver (FTL) to gold (SEN).
She can use the 2 evouchers on UA as long as the booking class is B or Y. 2 evouchers for 1 longhaul segment.
For EWR-LHR she is booked in an award booking class (X) which can not be upgraded with miles or evouchers.

Expiry and booking question

This is probably obvious, but not to me ...

I have two vouchers expiring end of June, but my next relevant upgradable flight isn't until July - if I use them by the end of June, is that sufficient, even the flight is later? That is, is the expiry for using to upgrade or for the flight date itself?

You'll be fine as long as the upgrade clears before the end of June.
