What is the easiest way to get Oneworld Sapphire – the definite answer

Oneworld Sapphire is the sweet spot for most frequent flyers because the status comes with all of the most important perks such as a free piece of luggage, priority boarding, lounge access, and even though not officially stated, most of the time priority security. However, there are so many different ways to reach this exclusive status that it is not clear which airline offers the easiest and fastest route to oneworld Sapphire. In this post, you will learn how to get oneworld Sapphire the easiest way possible.

This post is divided into two parts: status by the number of flights and status by points. If you fly frequently, but you fly short distances such as weekly domestic flights or weekly flights to a neighbouring country, you should definitely check out the first part on status by the number of flights. If, however, you fly long distances perhaps less frequently, take a look at the second part on getting oneworld Sapphire by points.

There’s no denying the importance Malaysia Airlines has in the region. It’s one of the world’s big airlines and a proud member of oneworld alliance.

Lufthansa business lounge in Munich terminal 2 (Schengen) is a solid experience

Lufthansa is known for its economic yet quality wise competitive business class in Europe. But how is their lounge in one of their main hubs in Munich? Lufthansa has several lounges in Munich, so to be clear, this review is based on the one located close to gate K11 in the satellite terminal 2. Even in that particular location, Lufthansa has two lounges: a business lounge and an exclusive lounge for senator members. This review is about the business lounge that you can access if you are traveling in business class or you are holding Star Alliance gold status.

Lufthansa business class in Europe gives some bang for the buck

Lufthansa has probably the cheapest business class tickets in Europe. It’s not uncommon to see Lufthansa business class being sold for cheaper than Finnair economy. Lufthansa’s ultra discounted P fare class makes it possible to snag business class tickets for a good price on one of the leading airlines in Europe. There’s a catch, however. If you are collecting points for one of the Star Alliance programs, you might get considerably less points than when flying in economy class or worse yet, no points at all. This is understandable given that it is not uncommon to see P fare Lufthansa business class sold for cheaper than Lufthansa’s own economy class! 😯 The cheap price is one of the main reasons I am gladly recommending Lufthansa business class.

Should you go to Aspire lounge in Helsinki?

Now that SAS has temporarily closed their lounge in Helsinki, there isn’t much option left in Helsinki for non-oneworld Schengen flights to have a lounge in than the Aspire lounge. Currently skyteam airlines such as KLM and Air France, Star Alliance airlines such as Lufthansa, Aegean and Croatian airlines together with a bunch of other airlines use the Aspire lounge in Helsinki. Only if you are flying Iberia or Finnair, you will have another lounge option. So can this lounge live up to the expectations?

Business Class, Finnair, Oneworld

Is Finnair business class in Europe really that bad?

Finnair business class in Europe has a service concept I have never really understood. On one hand, Finnair likes to set their prices to premium level but on the other hand, they don’t want to give you any value for their money. The only value I see in Finnair business class in Europe is that you will get 32 kg per luggage instead of 23 kg you would get in economy. This means that a business class ticket or an upgrade can be a killer deal if you have to move a lot of stuff between countries. What makes it better is that if you buy an economy class ticket with a piece of luggage, you will get an extra one for free if you upgrade to business class. What is more, every single piece of extra luggage you buy can also be up to 32 kg each. Note that a business light fare does not even give you this perk
