A Mystery Up Above: How Much Are Frequent Flier Miles Worth?

There is a mystery above and it is people wondering how much frequent flier miles are actually worth. Frequent flier mileage bears no correlation to the real world application of miles. Awards are actually given based on price of tickets and class, rather than actual miles. People can be surprised that they did not actually accrue the amount of miles they thought they had. The policies are pretty bizarre. You can go a long distance and get only a few miles from the airline.

Key Takeaways:

  • Looking for the best price is better than trying to look for deals to increase your frequent flyer miles
  • Airlines are adopting the new model of miles representing the price paid and not the actual miles traveled
  • Customers don’t have a lot of choice or complaint in how their miles are accrued

“And travelers should take advantage of the fact that many foreign carriers — including Air Canada, Lufthansa and British Airways, which are partners with the Big Three — still reward (mostly) based on distance.”
