I booked a ticket on Lufthansa website to weeks ago, my flight will be next November. I got a confirmation code and an eticket number.

Until now the price of the ticket was not charged to my credit card. I checked with Lufthansa, they said it was OK, I checked with my bank and they said they don't see the transactions in their records.

Has anybody been through a similar situation before? I just want to avoid any surprises on the flight day.


I often book online tickets from Lufthansa and I also find it strange, but it often takes several weeks before my selected mean of payment is actually charged. This has never caused any problems.

Even if you are not a registered user, you can use their 'My Bookings' page and with your last name and booking number retrieve your ticket and verify yourself that everything is ok.

  • Thank you, I'm just worried because the transaction didn't appear at all on my online banking records, was it like that with you? – Mina Samy Nov 14 '17 at 13:56
  • I usually pay with direct debit and not with credit card, but as I said, it usually take several weeks before the bank account, or in your case the credit card, is actually charged. Until the charge, you will not see it in your banking records. – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Nov 14 '17 at 14:01

  • Hi, finally Lufthansa charged my credit card after nearly 3 weeks. It seems that they delay charges for some reason. – Mina Samy Nov 18 '17 at 18:54
