One flight covers one segment, e.g. the route ZRH–FRA–JFK consists of one continental and one intercontinental segment.
A continental flight is a flight segment for which the departure and arrival airports are on the same continent. For example, if you fly with Lufthansa from Frankfurt to Barcelona, both the departure and arrival airports are within Europe and the flight therefore counts as a continental flight. Flights within Germany, Austria or Switzerland count as continental flights.
From Munich to Hamburg is a continental flight.
From Vienna to Barcelona is a continental flight.
From Zurich to Bangkok is an intercontinental flight, because the route covers two continents: Europe and Asia.
Simply enter the country of your departure airport and the country of your arrival airport. You will then be shown whether this is a continental or intercontinental flight.
Based on your input, you will reach the following frequent flyer level with the new points system:
This is a non-binding result.
The actual frequent flyer level can only be awarded after the flights actually flown have been assessed and checked.
