Lufthansa’s frequent flyer program, Miles and More, is adding a solid new feature to its program. Starting this May, families will be able to “pool” miles together.

Families of up to seven people will be able to combine award miles across accounts — specifically up to two adults and five children. When miles are scattered across accounts, pooling makes it much easier to get enough miles in one account to actually redeem for an award flight.

While most US readers aren’t crediting their Star Alliance flights to the Miles and More program, it’s nice to see that a mileage program is introducing positive changes for its members.

Miles and More has some decent redemptions. You can fly round-trip from the US to Europe in business for just 105,000 miles.

Miles and More is a transfer partner of SPG, so you can transfer Starpoints to your Miles and More account. The Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card From American Express is currently offering an elevated 35,000-point welcome bonus after spending $7,000 in the first three months.

Other mileage programs that allow pooling include Hilton Honors, British Airways Avios and JetBlue TrueBlue.
