Million Mile Secrets reader, Robert M Jones, commented:
I have 60,000 Lufthansa miles. I thought I could transfer them to United Airlines through the Star Alliance, but the Lufthansa website doesn’t offer that option. Do you know of a way to transfer the points?
Thank you for the question, Robert!
It’s NOT possible to transfer Lufthansa miles to United Airlines miles. In fact, you generally can NOT transfer airline miles to another airline.
But, you CAN book award flights on other airlines if they are travel partners.

I’ll explain how it works!
