Just checked my Lufthansa frequent flyer mileage status after arriving in Sao Paulo, Brazil. As of today, I have flown 54,053 miles since Jan 01, 2013.
Normally, I would have received a 3,000+ bonus to the miles earned on the long flight here, but for some reason I did not receive it. Perhaps because I flew with Lufthansa’s partner, TAM airlines (who are quite horrible, by the way. Very delayed leaving and poor service and entertainment onboard.) Hopefully I will fly out of Brazil on a different airline so I again get the bonus. I’ll need it if I’m going to hit my 100,000 mile goal this year!
