Maybe the system doesn't care about HON miles until reaching SEN status and only then activates the right differentiation in counting.
I thought the same. But since quite a while already I can see my HON miles on my profile and they are (unfortunately) way below the above mentionned threshold of 300k.

Initially I thought it was a glitch with LH IT since it only showed on lufthansa.com, but they never bothered fixing it. So maybe it was on purpose.

The real problem is that even if the system shows 300k HON Circle miles, you still have to fly another 300k to actually become one.

If flying is a problem, why become HON in the first place?

I was not really planning on it, but if you reach around 450-500k then you can just go for it anyway

Per multiple reports of smart guy Hombre ("The Voice of the HONs") there is no value being a HON anymore:

So, DON'T GO FOR IT. You will regret it.

I don`t think so, but flying more eco (innereuropean and innergerman) the last months
I noticed since about begin of the year when fliying eco

  • that I have been greeted more often than in C before (happened nearly never before)
  • that I sometimes was asked whether I want a magazine
  • that I was offered chocolate when leaving the plane
  • sometimes even was told that I may sit in business if I want (no official OP UP)

Altogether my experience this year and so far: Quite the opposite of the OP.

Semantics is a dangerous animal.

As from elementary logics A->B follows not B -> not A, the 'inconvenient' deduction here would be smart -> "bashes LH" induces "apologises LH"-> ..... oh well.

Hi Thomas,

you are right. But then - why shouldn't I write?

I won't let people like Weero or Rambuster let me tell what to write and what not.

So if you (and others) see my name, skip reading the post...

Simple
