Milez Calculation and Comparison

Below are the redemption rates for a frequent flyer award ticket between Singapore (SIN) and Hong Kong (HKG). You will see how many air miles are needed to travel between SIN and HKG.

The calculations are based on the rates published by the frequent flyer programs; we currently track approximately 75 frequent flyer programs. The calculator checks every frequent flyer program in the system to see if the destination pair is served by that program and then shows the number of air miles needed for an award flight.

If you are looking for suggestions on how to use your frequent flyer miles, try our suggestions engine here.

How to read the results:

  • The lowest rate for award flights is found in the system and listed at the top of the results tables.
  • The "Transfer Rates" button calculates the number of points needed to convert and transfer from a partner loyalty program (hotel and credit card programs).
  • "Login" links to the frequent flyer program's login page.
  • "Apply" links to the frequent flyer program's application page (to join the program).
  • "Check Rates" links to the frequent flyer programs own calculator or rates tables.
  • If the program is distance based and a connection is necessary, the calculator will find the most advantageous connection and calculate the flight distance through that connection.

AAdvantage does not charge fuel surcharges in most cases, be it for American Airlines flights or flights on oneworld partner carriers.

British Airways and Iberia are the exceptions to this rule. BA redemption flights are usually accompanied by several hundreds of dollars in extra fees.

Be aware of some of the exceptions to the zone-to-zone award rates! If origin and destination of the award ticket are in the same zone, transit through another zone will incur additional redemption charges.

Read the following post on One Mile at a Time for extra details on transit zones with AA award tickets:

Surcharges on Aeroplan award tickets can be significant. They consist of various items such as fuel surcharges, sundry charges (such as for security, facilities and passengers), taxes (HST in Canada, airport taxes etc.) and other smaller fees (e.g. airport fees). The final cost of all surcharges is also dependent on which airlines are being used and how many legs the itinerary has. The most significant cost is usually the fuel surcharge. Trans-oceanic flights usually incur several hundreds of dollars in surcharges.

Fuel surcharges do not apply to all Star Alliance airlines, the following carriers incur a fuel surcharge when booking through Aerolpan: Air Canada, Adria, Asiana, Austrian, LOT Polish, Lufthansa, TAP Portugal, THAI.

The one-way surcharge for the direct Cathay Pacific flight from Singapore to Hong Kong is USD 19.

Off-peak rates are only for BA flights.

Taxes and fees are always paid in cash
when redeeming flights with Executive Club. The fuel surcharges are  broken out and can be expensive. In the UK APD (Air Passenger Duty) is an extra fee added; this fee is significantly higher in business and first class.

Non-BA flights
may be available for much lower rates since some airlines cannot break out fuel surcharges. Examples of flights that do not incur fuel surcharges are:
  • LAN to South America
  • American Airlines to South America or within North America

Delta flights do not incur fuel surcharges. Generally, flights originating in the USA do not have fuel surcharges broken out. But there are some exceptions such as Aeroflot (SU) and Air Europa (UX) to Europe as well as China Airlines (CI), China Southern (CZ) and China Eastern (MU), these airlines all charge significant YQ.

Korean Air Lines (KE) and Virgin Australia (DJ) are good options for the Pacific rim. Aerolíneas Argentinas (AR) and AeroMéxico (AM) are good choice for Latin America. To avoid fuel surcharges to Europe, use KLM (KL), Air France (AF),  and Alitalia (AZ).

The rule about Brazil applies to all programs, not only TAM Fidelidade and GOL Smiles, so that award flights coming from Brazil, booked through any program, are often a very good bargain on any program.

However, surcharges vary from airline to airline, for example Asiana Airlines (OZ) surcharges are lower than others such as Lufthansa (LH).

Miles & More adds fuel surcharges and other fees to the miles required for an award ticket. These fees can be prohibitively expensive.General agreement seems to be that award flights in business and first class are still good bargains, whereas award flights in economy class can sometimes be more expensive than all-in tickets purchased for cash.

It is worth looking for Star Alliance flights operated by American or Brazilian airlines as they may not have fuel surcharges. LOT Polish flights do not incur a fuel surcharge.

Be aware of some of the exceptions to the zone-to-zone award rates! If origin and destination of the award ticket are in the same zone, transit through another zone will incur additional redemption charges.

One way flight awards with Miles & more are 50% of the round trip rates. They are rounded down to the next 1,000-mile threshold.
