Lufthansa Locks Up Miles

Lufthansa Safe
Lufthansa uses one of the glossiest and best retouched safes I discovered recently. The “Lufthansa Miles” you receive for your flights are safe behind this digitally cleaned door. Here the safe is not used to signify secure flights and aircrafts but “miles” that do not expire. “Miles” being somehow intangible data, I guess it is better to hide it behind a depiction of the security as such than trying to visualize “miles” themselves. Anyway the safe stresses the worthiness of these data.

But what is inside the safe? Maybe just data, maybe the data processing center of Lufthansa with a lot of servers. Actually I do not know and from the unknown it is only one step to the uncanny. And from the uncanny only one step to fear.

The screenshot of miles-and-more.com is from February 4, 2010.
