EuroBonus Calculators

Milez has updated the SAS EuroBonus calculators on its system with the new rates. There have been some significant changes on the Star Alliance charts, for example flying economy from Southern Africa to the Far East is now 30,000 miles more than previously, cf. Johannesburg to Tokyo.
On the other hand going from Southern Africa to South America or the Caribbean is now 30,000 fewer miles in economy or 40,000 fewer miles in business class, e.g. Cape Town to Buenos Aires. Another big change is the first class redemption from Australia to Hawaii (plus 50,000 miles).

The EuroBonus own metal calculator has also been brought up to date. It includes flights with SAS, Wideroe, Atlantic Airways and some Baltic Air flights. EuroBonus members can reach the Faroe Islands with Atlantic Airways for 20,000 miles round trip. Domestic flights in the Scandinavian countries start at 10,000 miles.

American Airlines Rate Change March 2016

The American Airlines award charts are changing on March 22, 2016. You can already query milez.biz to do comparisons between the old and the new rates!

The calculations for oneworld and partner redemptions do not quite coincide with the rates for American Ailrines own metal calculations. We have therefore added two new American Airlines calculators.

Asian Update

Milez has added one more SkyTeam, calculator to its engine. Sky Pearl (China Southern) can now query SkyTeam rates directly on this site too. Hawaii is zoned together with Mexico the Caribbean and Central America. A redemption from Tokyo to Bermuda is cheaper than a redemption from Taipei to Los Angeles. Bermuda to Hawaii or Maldives to South Africa (same zones respectively) would also be an attractive option. The China Southern own metal calculators have also been brought up to date.

We have added the new zone based ANA Mileage Club calculations for ANA own metal flights. For Japanese domestic flights, the engine assumes that the flights are direct.

Another SkyTeam Calculator

China Eastern is a partner in the SkyTeam alliance. Eastern Miles members can now query the milez engine for both China Eastern own metal flights as well as flights with SkyTeam partner airlines. Own metal flight award rates are calculated based on distance flown. SkyTeam rates are determined based on zones.

All Delta Air Lines Fare Buckets

Delta Air Lines introduced a Level 1 to Level 5 categorization to its award flights some time ago. Saver, Standard and Peak rates no longer exist as they were replaced by Levels 1, 3 and 5 respectively. Levels 2 and 4 are new. Not every route has all levels but generally any route that involves an American destination will have the 5 levels in both economy and business class. See for example, Boston to Honolulu.

SkyTeam routes entirely outside North America still only have one applicable level, for example Kuala Lumpur to Amsterdam.

More Booking Classes Added to Asiana Calculator

The Asiana Club calculator now also includes the "Business Smartium" and the "First Suite" classes. These classes only apply to Asiana flights, not to Star Alliance flights.

Latest ANA Star Alliance Rates

The ANA Star Alliance award charts changed only a few months after they had already been changed in April 2015. In October 2015 new rates were introduced once again.

Some of the highlights include:
  • 17K fewer miles needed for business class from Japan to Hawaii
    For example: Tokyo to Honolulu
  • 21K fewer miles required in first class between Korea and Europe
    For example: Seoul to Rome
  • 30K fewer miles required in first class between Hawaii and Australia
    For example: Honolulu to Melbourne
  • 10K more miles required in economy between Asia 2 and North America
    For example: Mumbai to San Francisco
  • 32K more miles needed in first class for Hawaii to South America
    For example: Maui to São Paulo

Virgin Atlantic Flying Cub

Milez.biz has updated its Virgin Atlantic reward flight calculator. It has also added partner calculators for redemptions with All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Delta Air Lines. The ANA calculator includes domestic and international rates.

LifeMiles and IberiaPlus Updates

Milez has done a long-due update of the IberiaPlus award rates. The Iberia own-metal calculator now includes peak and off-peak rates for Iberia flights. The oneworld rates have also been updated, the calculator now differentiates rates for single oneworld carriers and mutliple oneworld carriers. We have also added a specific British Airways calculator for Iberia avios.

LifeMiles recently introduced some more granular zones for short haul flights. For example, the USA is now divided into three zones: East Coast, Midwest and South, and West Coast. Short haul flights within the USA or within Europe can now be redeemed for fewer miles. See Miami to Chicago or Detroit to Myrtle Beach. Both of those destination pairs are now in the same short-haul zones.

Emirates Update

We've done a thorough Emirates Skywards calculator update. All rates for Emirates and its partner programs are now up to date. We have added the following Emirates partner calculators:
  • Jet Airways, for domestic flights in India.
  • jetBlue, for domestic flights in the USA and international flights to jetBlue destinations.
  • JetStar for flights in Australia and JetStar destinations outside Australia.
  • S7 which covers primarily Russia and Central Asia.

We already featured partner calculators for Alaska Airlines, JAL, Korean Air Lines, Qantas, TAP and Virgin America.
