You can apply for a Flight Value Voucher under Flight Value Vouchers.

The suitability of the ticket for conversion may be limited by technical requirements. These will be checked by Lufthansa. If a Flight Value Voucher is applied for complex situations that exclude use online (e.g. partly flown tickets, already transferred tickets etc.), Users will be informed about any alternative options available (e.g. reissue of the original ticket for a new journey via the Lufthansa Service Center). The offer to convert a ticket into a Flight Value Voucher is a voluntary service offered by Lufthansa and does not constitute any legal entitlement.
Conversion into a Flight Value Voucher can only be obtained on the Flight Value Voucher Portal quoting the booking number (record locator) or the ticket number of an unused ticket issued by Lufthansa.
A valid Lufthansa or Miles & More user profile is required for conversion. This user profile can also be created immediately before applying for a Flight Value Voucher and is free of charge.
Applications for a Flight Value Voucher will be checked and issued online in the form of a redemption code.
The Flight Value Voucher relates to the named passenger and is issued in the name of the passenger of the underlying ticket. If several tickets are converted into a voucher (e.g. within one family), the User selects the name of the holder of the voucher.

Where Lufthansa is liable in principle, entitlement to compensation shall be limited to the foreseeable amount of the claim typical to the contract (value of the assigned service).
These limitations of liability shall not apply in the event of injury to life, body or health, gross negligence or wilful intent by the employees, agents or legal representatives of Lufthansa, and in the event of liability stipulated by law regardless of fault, or in the case of any guarantees undertaken.
