Alaska Airlines Partnership Updates
has been added as a partner for Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan
flight redemption. This adds many destinations in Mexico. Mileage Plan members can connect to the AeroMéxico network at LAX or Mexico City (MEX).
Example: LA to Cancun
Air Pacific is now called Fiji Airways
. If you're looking to calculate rates for flights on Fiji Airways as a Mileage Plan member select the Fiji Airways partnership in the drop down menu.Icelandair
is no longer a partner for miles redemption for Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members and can therefore not be queried on milez.biz anymore.

Qatar Airways oneworld Rates
The Privilege Club
(Qatar Airways) oneworld
rates have now been added to the milez.biz calculator. You can query the database for flights with partner airlines from the oneworld alliance.
You can also compare the Qatar oneworld redemption rates against 9 other oneworld partner programs. For example see here oneworld partner rates for a New York JFK to Tokyo NRT ticket

US Airways Dividend Miles oneworld Rates Added
The US Airways rates for oneworld
awards have been added to the calculator. This means you can now query milez.biz for award rates with oneworld partner airlines.
Concurrently, all the other oneworld programs have been updated with the added US Airways routes, this means that there can be some attractive short-haul routes, e.g. YYZ-JFK (a US Airways route) with British Airways
Avios (9,000 in economy).

15 April, 2014
Dividend Miles No Longer Star Alliance
The US Airways merger with American Airlines has brought an end to the US Airways program Dividend Miles as a Star Alliance partner. We have deactivated the Star Alliance rates on the milez.biz calculator. We will update the system soon with the new Dividend Miles oneworld rates.
We have alerady updated the standard US Airways Dividend Miles
rates, this includes all rates for redemptions on US Airways flights. For example, Charlotte to Sao Paulo
or Philadelphia to Brussels
. Both the current rates and the ones valid as of June 1, 2014, are included.
We have removed the "Availability" button from our search results as awardtravelr.com recently discontinued its availability search functionality. We will look for alternatives to make your redemption searches as efficient and simple as possible.

New Delta SkyMiles Rates Added
Delta Air Lines
many of the redemption rates in its SkyMiles
program. Some of the increases will take effect on February 1, 2014, and the rest on June 1, 2014.
As an example, see how the rates change from JFK to Tel Aviv
All current and future rates are listed side by side in the results table so that you can plan how to best use your miles.
8 January, 2014
New United Rates Added
United Mileage Plus is making some sweeping changes to the redemption rates of its program. The large majority of rates are being increased; the new rates come into effect on February 2, 2014.
The milez.biz calculator has both the old and the new rates currently available on its system. You can therefore compare the two directly; both old and new rates are listed side by side and labelled accordingly.
The changes impact both the standard United rates as well as the Star Alliance partner rates. Rates within North America remain largely the same, but other than that members will likely have to spend more miles to get to their destinations. Especially the business and first class rates will be increased significantly.
