  • In order to receive a mobile boarding pass by SMS, you must have entered both your mobile phone number and your e-mail address (so we can send you your Passenger Receipt) in your profile.
  • If you do not wish to use the automated check-in service, deactivate automated check-in in your Miles & More profile at least 24 hours before your departure. Your profile entries can be reactivated at any time.
  • Please note that changes to your booking after automated check-in can be made 23 hours before departure either on under ‘Check-in’ via the option ‘Cancel Check-in’, or by calling the Lufthansa Service Centre. A prerequisite for this is that your ticket allows for your booking to be changed.
