35,000 Voyager Miles - spending on Star Alliance Partners?

Hello All,

I am very confused by the rules (and prices) for using SAA Voyager miles on Star Alliance partners. I have 35,000 miles I need to use up ASAP as they are going to expire in 5 days. I have priced up a one-way Business Class redemption from TUN>FRA>LAD with LH. On the Lufthansa Miles & More site, this comes out at 35,000 miles.

Does this mean I can book it using my 35,000 SAA Voyager miles? Or should I be pricing up using the "STAR ALLIANCE AWARD CHART" here: https://www.flysaa.com/bw/en/voyager...rAlliance.html? This comes out as EUROPE to AFRICA and costs 207 300 miles(!) A significant difference!

Is it even possible to book a one-way redemption on a Star Alliance partner airline using SAA Voyager miles?

Thanks!

Hi, I found that spending on SAA miles is a challenge so I use it to upgrade instead as it required less miles than redemption.

SAA Miles are useless, Extremly expensive for Award Tickets and then the extra Taxes and fees to be paid.
I am sitting on 15000 miles and dont know what to do with them :-(
