A frequent flyer by definition gives you some benefits :

  • Lounges access (if you have the right level)
  • Flight or Hotel Redeption
  • Priority boarding
  • Upgrade (depends if the airline is stingy or not and obviously for operational reasons)

In the past few years we have seen big changes from FFP across the board. Carriers have increased miles required to book an award and the trend will continue, some, also increased the threshold for status and decreased the miles for enonomy flights from 100% to 25% vanishing the hopes for some coach passengers.

If you are a coach travellers flying the cheapest fares won’t get you anywhere with miles, but you still can get a good FFP for status by taking enough flights. More on that on the page "how to have a cheap Status"

Does that mean you are stuck, not necessary, you need to see things from another perspetive.

When you are signing up with a FFP, you need to ask yourself :

  • Do I want miles?
  • Do I want status?
  • Do I want great redemption?
  • What routes do I fly?
  • What is my booking class?

Once you have answered these questions you will have a better picture of your needs.

We are here to help you achieve what you want! Taking your wife to a sandy beach in First Class is not a bad idea, would you agree ? specially if it’s as cheap as filling up your gas tank...

As a general comment about miles is collect and burn whenever you can. As much as we love miles, it’s a junk bond and his asset keeps shrinking. We have a lot of airlines who have increased their charts with or without notice.

Now fasten your seatbelt and browse all the programs to find the one you need.

Given how long it takes to understand and explain the programs, if you spot a mistake, let us know and we'll make the change accordingly.

In the meantime, we'll be delighted to have your help to build the missing programs signed by your name. Please let us know if you are interested.
