Promotion earlier this year was over 20 times better

The recent 50k Qualiflyer miles promotion reached a number of Q-flyers, see: http///www.flyertalk.com/forum/Forum40/HTML/000820.html.

During the 240k promotion earlier this year a whole bunch of Q-flyers were doing the mileage run BSL-BRN return 5 times, which brought up to 305,500 Qualiflyer miles at a cost of CHF 980, or € 0.002 per award mile.

After the 240k promotion beginning 2002 Qualiflyer became smart: LX flights within Switzerland are not part of the present promotion. Doing the run BSL-BRN now is out of bounds.

There is in my opinion no cheap way to get the required 20 segments in C for the match of 50k Qualiflyer bonus miles. As far as I know the cheapest international Swiss C-class fare is the route Friedrichshafen–Basel for € 313 return, tax included. The flight leaves FDH at 06:00 in the morning and BSL at 22:15 in the evening making a run undoable.

I am not sure that the following calculation still holds: Per return in C class: 2,000 award miles + 500 bonus miles (e-Check-in at BSL). Are there still bonus miles for e-Booking via the LX website and bonus miles for an LX e-Ticket? Ten returns will bring a 4,000 Travel Club or 6,000 miles Travel Club gold bonus.

Unfortunately a mileage run FDH–BSL sums up € 3130 for 75,000 Qualiflyer miles or € 0.042 per award mile. The promotion earlier this year was over 20 times better.

Before the current 50k promo, I was invited to three targeted promos since winter 2000/2001, each around 240k to 280k bonus miles. The last one this winter was the ONLY ONE which included domestic flights, so excluding them is nothing new. The first two promos in 2001 were better though, because they included more airlines and thus easier (and often cheaper) C-class segment collection.

Sorry but I have to say that 2 out 3 promotions you are talking about (240'000 bonus miles) included domestics flights.

But agree with you and kurz again the new promotion 50'000 bonus miles is not a good promotion not only for the price but also for the flights time.

Another thing for People travelling out of Switzerland, zhey have to spend the night in Friedrichshafen.....

But this said I hope we will get some new and better promotions soon...
