An attractive offer for flexible passengers = Bumping-rules

from LH's official leaflet (in six languages: Ein attraktives Angebot für Fluggäste ohne Termindruck", "An attractive offer for flexible passengers", "Vous ètes libre de modifier votre agenda?", "Una atractiva oferta para pasajeros sin prisa", "Un' allettante offerta per chi non ha fretta". Document 30947 A-97 /FRA KB/P):

Intercontinental flights (except from Canada/USA; including to Canada/USA):

Last year in june, I bumped from FRA-IST flight. I had my 600DM(150DM*4) LH Vouchers + 40DM Lunch voucher. My flight was rebooked as FRA-VIE(LH)-IST(OS). I reached to Istanbul only 5 hours later than my original arrival time.

Then I used my 3 coupons of my voucher (150DM*3) for IST-FRA-CDG Ticket which was only 199 USD by LH to match TK Offer in March. And I bought a very nice parfume from inflight duty free with the last 150DM coupon.

And one note, you can earn both status and bonus miles from the flight tickets which you buy with your LH vouchers.

Thanks a lot for the info - did you pick up the leaflet at the Senator Lounge? I haven't seen it before.

Mizu, it is normally handed out when LH has overbooking problems in FRA. I got one copy in HAM when I checked in. I've also seen it in the Business Lounges in HAM, FRA and MUC as well as at the check-in in MXP. Your LH ATO in FMO will also give you one.

? there is no minimum delay - as stated above, if the alternatvie flight offered is scheduled to arrive less then 2 hours later (theoretically could be departing one minute later then your original scheduled flight ...)
