The selection of upgrades

Lufthansa will let you know by email whether you will receive the upgrade at the latest 24 hours before your scheduled departure. Before the selection is made, all tickets that are the subject of an offer will be checked again according to the terms and conditions of participation. If the booking has been changed in the meantime, an upgrade will no longer be possible.

If your offer is accepted, your credit card will be debited with the amount you specified. You will receive new electronic tickets and, at check-in, boarding passes for the new travel class. If the flight is cancelled because of disruptions, your upgrade will be valid for the next available flight.

If your offer was not accepted, we will also let you know by email. You will then fly in the travel class you originally booked, and you will not incur any extra costs.


If you have any questions about the process or require further information about submitting an upgrade offer, please refer to the FAQs.

(1) = Unfortunately, for technical and legal reasons, tickets bought in Japan or India and tickets bought as part of a group booking are excluded. For further details of the terms and conditions of participation, please see the FAQs.

(2) = An offer always applies to all persons for whom the ticket is issued: for example, for three people the offer amount is tripled. In addition, offers always apply per route, so you can decide whether you want to make offers for all or just for individual flight segments.

(3) = You will be credited with award miles and status miles when you upgrade to the respective higher travel class. You can find further information at Miles & More.
