After being extremely confused on how Miles & More and Star Alliance and the other big alliances (SkyTeam and Oneworld) work, I decided to register at the Miles & More website.
From what I'm able to understand, I can give the new card number to a member airline and they will simply add the miles to my card. After a set number of miles, they will be able to send the card to my address.
My next flight is with Air India which is to be added into Star Alliance in June. My flight is in August, after which I plan to take two more flights with Lufthansa which are also in August.
Now, in order to get my miles and the permanent card, what else do I need to do?
