Request the Brussels Airlines Premium American Express card via my form below. Once you are approved for the card, you get 12,000 miles. (instead of the 6000 miles via the regular American Express / Miles & More website) The yearly fee of the card is 150EUR but comes with a number of travel insurances & buyer protection. You’ll earn 1.5 miles for every euro you spend with the American Express card. Check all details here.

2. Pay cellphone bills with American Express = 2000 miles

4. Always use your Brussels Airlines American Express card

Here’s some advice to maximise the use your American Express card. Remember, you’ll earn 1.5 Miles & More miles per euro spend.

To earn the required 62,000 miles for your First Class award exclusively by using your Brussels Airlines American Express card, your goal should be to spend 25,000EUR in one year.

  1. Hi Bart,
    Great suggestion to book Lufthansa first class with 62K miles!
    However, this offer seems to have been expired or is very hard to get!
    ‘Preferred cabin’ is always unavailable, suggested alternative is business with Turkish.

  3. Thanks for an inspiring article, it would be so cool to test Lufthansa first class at some point! But since I have to stick with Oneworld (at least for now) I guess Qatar Airways is the next best option 🙂

  4. A call to AMEX answered all my questions. 🙂 Sorry to have taken up so much space here in the comment section.

  5. Hi there,

    Thanks for sharing your experience. I’ve got a business trip planned in two weeks’ time, one month in the US with massive spending which can be reimbursed… I wonder if I sign the Premium AMEX up today, will it be possible to have the card received before my departure date (I live in Antwerp, flying out from Zaventem on 29th Oct). Having checked some posts on flyertalk, I noticed that people complain about the usability of the card at initial months with occasional refusals, which ceases to take place after.

    Perhaps another question (thanks for taking your time to answer in advance): how does the payment settlement work? One always has to settle the payment as soon as the bill arrives?

    Many thanks!

  6. You need to hurry because after January 2018 there is no first class cabin offered on
    Lufthansa flights to the Middle East.
    Flights to other destinations require much more miles.

  7. Can you really book a first class award with Miles and More? Only when you are a Senator I guess. I’ll try it again, And I have more miles than I can make use of!

    • Hi Kim, yes you can. 🙂 You don’t need to have status with Miles & More to book Lufthansa First Class. Only for SWISS First Class you need Senator status.

      • Well I just tried and only economy is offered. I tried BRU=BKK and tried BRU-CPT before. No luck.

        • Award seats are limited. Not all flights have Business / First Class award seats. Try BRU-DXB (e.g. Oct 12, 2017) and you should see First Class award availability.

  8. Bart I can’t get enough of your blog + pictures …ik heb nu 80 000 points , ik ben aan sparen voor BRU-DXB heen en terug 🙂
