Lufthansa Will Adopt Dynamic Award Pricing for Its Loyalty Program
The airline’s loyalty rewards program has become the latest to adopt dynamic pricing, “a relatively new approach to selling award seats in the airline industry. In the past, most legacy carriers structured award seat prices in zoned tiers—for example, a round-trip ticket in the United States would typically cost 25,000 miles, or a trip from the U.S. to Europe would cost 50,000. Dynamic pricing, however, allows the carrier to push that value up or down depending on the current shelf price of a retail ticket. That ticket to Europe could thus cost 100,000 miles if inventory were tight (i.e., summer travel) or 40,000 in the off-season.”
