Here’s their partner award chart.
The award charts aren’t super cheap, but they’re not bad, though of course a 50% off companion award and a 50% redemption rebate makes this pretty attractive.
You can earn airberlin points crediting oneworld and other airline partner miles from flying, you can credit rental cars, and of course Starwood points transfer 1:1 into airberlin with of course a 5000 mile bonus when you transfer points into 20,000 miles.
