Some may think I'm crazy to spend an afternoon during vacation in Greece with four flights. Sure, for the majority there is no point in flying to the island of Chios for just 25 minutes. However, I need this Mileage Run with Aegean Airlines to extend my Star Alliance Gold frequent flyer status for another year.
Lufthansa uses a solid, if not earth-shattering, product on short and medium-haul routes. In January we were able to extensively test the Lufthansa Business Class in the Airbus A320 on the way from Oslo to Munich. In the review you will find out how we experienced Business Class at Lufthansa in the new Europa cabin.
Once you have a frequent flyer status, you want to defend it every year. I have had Star Alliance Gold status with Greek airline Aegean Airlines for almost five years. Since we hardly took any air travel due to the birth of our son in January this year, a mileage run was necessary to extend the status.
