Some unusual award options – Lufthansa – Tools, Giftcards and Summer Houses

Spured on by my review of unusual Air France and KLM awards, I wanted to bring you some interesting awards from another European airline – Lufthansa.

For several years, LH has had a catalogue of consumer goods in the seat back pocket. With an emphasis on travel originally, the catalogue now has lots of desirable products, most of which can be obtained with miles. One of my favourites is:

a green and black cordless drill












Who could resist that – only 19,000 Miles and More miles?

If you have a substantial number of miles you can even obtain a Summer House for your garden:

a small house with a green door and chairs








Only 1,615,000 miles!

For those aviation buffs, you can book a flight simulator session for 95,000 miles. There are some conditions to this offer:
