Update to the SAA Voyager Star Alliance Calculator
As was noticed by some users our SAA Star Alliance
calculator was in need of an update. The currently valid Star Alliance rates are now in the system. There have been a few small updates to the redemption zones as well:
This means there could be some interesting sweet spots, such as Japan to the Maldives
(fewer miles than India to the Maldives
) or Hawaii to Bermuda
(costing less than Boston to Hawaii

New Data and Calculators

We have also added three more Korean Skypass partners: Etihad, GOL and Jet Airways.

Updated LATAM Calculator
It looks like the LATAM program may soon go through a transformation (https://www.latam.com/en_ca/latam-pass/latam-pass-points/new-latam-pass-points/
), noneteless, we have updated the calculator to the latest rates. LATAM uses KMS as a currency (this will change) and own-metal award can only round trip
. KMS rates are a bit higher than typical miles rates in other programs.
LATAM KMS can also be redeemed for some oneworld
flights, however, only American Airlines, Iberia and Qantas are covered.

Suggestions Engine V2
We have redeveloped the code of our suggestions engine. We have added additional control options
in order to help you find interesting destinations to travel to with your miles. You can now query the system for one-way
flights, which in many cases will allow you to optimize the use of your miles better. The zones based programs provide one-click options to a map of the possible zones
, which will give you more options per rate. For the distance based programs you can limit the searches to direct flights

Singapore Airlines Update
updated its award charts for own-metal flights on March 23rd. We have now updated our calculator as well.This includes flights on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir. The update is a devaluation as award rates have gone up -- many miles prices have gone up approximately 30%. But it's not all bad news since some of the high fuel surcharges are being waived. A long redemption between Cape Town and the US West Coast
is not looking so bad considering it is all on Singapore Airlines.

Some Small Updates
We have added another Emirates partner calculator. Emirates Skywards
members can redeem flights with Brazilian airline GOL
. GOL has a large route network in Brazil and one-way award flights
in economy class start for as little as 4,500 miles
. For example Sao Paulo to the Iguaçu Falls
. Longer haul flights include Brazil to the Dominican Republic
We've added two more transfer calculators:
- Heathrow Rewards allows transfers to a number of different frequent flyer programs for members who collect points at Heathrow Airport.
- Citi Prestige Rewards of Australia allows conversion to a nice list of Australian and Asian programs as well.

Eurowings Calculator Added
Eurowings flights can be redeemed with Miles & More miles but the airline also has its own loyalty program, called Boomerang Club
. All flights within Europe and North Africa are considered short- and mid-haul and start at 20,000 miles round-trip (10,000 miles one way). Overseas flights start at 80,000 miles for the round trip, for example Cologne to Seattle
or Cologne to Windhoek
