    Hi, I just started my career as a frequent traveler and I’m looking for optimizing my local Miles and More program.

    I will need to flight to Budapest from BRU and back.

    If I choose a 2 stops flight instead of a direct flight will this be considered as a 3 flights (2 segments) or only as a single one? I travel mainly in Europe and thus I’m trying to get the 30 flights in as fast as possible.

    Thank you for the help.

    By 2 stops do you mean something like BUD-ZRH-FRA-BRU? That would count as 3 segments when it comes to earning status by segments flown, which I assume is what you are really asking about?.

    This : BRU -MUC-BUD instead of BRU-BUD

    In your example, yes that's 2 segments. Returning direct BUD - BRU would be another 1, for 3 total
