I appreciate the optimistic feeling and point of view, and I hope you are right... but on balance of probability and I am reading this differently.

Time will tell!

I can't find the "Mileage Pooling" option in the Android version (7.1.2) of the app. My account is registered in Germany and I'm logged in.

What could be the problem?

One question: can you pool already earned miles (from one account to another). Or is it only possible to pool new points?

All existing miles will be pooled.

And welcome to FT - took you quite a while to come out of hiding...

When I pool my HON and another SEN account are the additinal credits of 50,000 for the SEN account and of 100,000 for the HON account also pooled?

Only the award miles are pooled. The target audience is the occasional mileage collector who can combine forces with friends and family to redeem something.

Slightly off topic. Does anyone know what this #snapmiles is about? I know from the text that you take a photo of your purchase and the miles are credited but I can't see any other related stuff about this. Was this a past promo that miles and more was experimenting with?

Family pooling and M&M for a minor

Hello,
Looking for some help on. While I extensively travel internationally with Lufthansa and Swiss, I was really excited of the recent news that Miles and More has announced the possibility of family pooling. Great news, I thought as we have some great trips this year on Star Alliance flights. Problem is, I couldn't find how to set up the family pooling, or in fact register a minor. Is this the result of a delay of the program? What's the experience from the members of this forum?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Giuseppe

Would love to know that as well - based in Belgium, so really close (and home to a Lufthansa owned airline), would be great to be able to pool

Looks like pooling outside of Germany/Austria/Switzerland is far away. From LH's employee magazine 'One':

Are there any other steps
in the pipeline?
From the beginning of next year, it will
also be possible to use mileage pooling
through our redesigned website. In the
meantime, the function will be available
via the app. Once we have acquired
enough experience of mileage pooling,
we will review whether to extend the offer
beyond the DACH region. ●

Thanks!
