The Barclays Lufthansa Mastercard earns 2x miles with Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, and several other airlines. Cardholders also get 2 lounge passes each year for any Lufthansa Business Lounge.
However, the card lacks any other great benefits to justify its $89 annual fee.

Lufthansa Card Benefits
Two Annual Lounge Passes– Every year, including the first year, cardholders get two one-time-use lounge vouchers at any Lufthansa Business Lounge worldwide.
Companion Ticket– Every year, including the first year, cardholders are eligible for a companion ticket when the companion pays the taxes and fees associated with the ticket. However, in reality, this companion ticket isn’t that great because of Lufthansa’s fees and the cardholder’s ticket must be in a more expensive fare class of service (H, M, Y, & B). You may only save less than $100 with the companion ticket.
Convert Miles to Status Miles: Cardmembers can convert their miles to elite status miles at a ratio of 5 to 1 with a minimum of 5,000 award miles and a maximum of 25,000 miles.
No Foreign Transaction Fees– You can use your Lufthansa card anywhere in the world without having to pay a foreign transaction fee, which saves you about 3%.
