Added Royal Air Maroc Routes to oneworld calculators

All oneworld calculators now also have the Royal Air Maroc (AT) routes included. This adds many new destinations in Morocco and mainly western Africa to the oneworld universe.

Here's an example for the award rates across the various oneworld programs for the direct flight between Montreal and Casablanca.

We have also added the Royal Air Maroc (Safar Flyer) oneworld calculator.

Copa Own Metal Calculator

We have now also added the frequent flyer miles calculator for Copa's ConnectMiles awards on its own flights. The geographic zones are defined the same as for the Star Alliance destinations but the rates differ slightly. In addition the "own metal" flights  have saver and standard categories.

See, for example, New York City to Panama City.

New Calculator: ConnectMiles (CopaAirlines) has added one more Star Alliance calculator: ConnectMiles, the frequent flyer program for CopaAirlines, based in Panama. Panama is a good connecting point to get to South America, where Star Alliance does not have too many partners. For example, it makes Suriname (AMS to PBM on Star Alliance programs) or Paraguay (ASU to MAD) reachable on an award ticket.

Small Devaluation of the Aegean Program

Aegean's program Miles+Bonus has suddenly devalued its award chart. However, only a few routes were affected by this and the change is not monumental. Redemption rates have gone up mainly for routes involving a European destination. For example, a first class award ticket from North America to Europe has gone up 30,000 miles for the round trip: San Francisco to Athens

Also itineraries within the Far East have gone up, Singapore to Tokyo now costs 65,000 miles in business class (round trip), this used to be 42,000.

Qantas Adds Air France as Partner

Qantas and Air France recently announced a partnership, which means that Qantas Frequent Flyer members can now redeem flights operated by Air France. We have added the Air France route network to the Qantas Partners Classic Award calculator.

These routes include all domestic destinations in France (such as Nice to Bordeaux) as well as all AF's international routes, for example Tahiti to Paris. Most international routes connect through the Charles de Gaulle (CDG) or Orly (ORY) airports in Paris.

LifeMiles Adjustments

There are many great ways to use Avianca LifeMiles and the program regularly has good promotion deals on miles sales. The calculator has been adjusted to reflect all the latest rate adjustments. The program has more granular zones than many other programs, for example the USA and Europe are each split into three zones, see them on a map here: USA I, USA II, USA III, Europe I, Europe II, Europe III. This means that there can be some interesting short-haul redemption possibilities.

Another interesting data point is that redemption rates can be different depending on the direction of travel, Brazil and Oceania are affected by this rule. An Auckland-Vancouver-Auckland flight has different award rates than a Vancouver-Auckland-Vancouver redemption. Same applies to an itinerary between Rio and Lisbon, as an example.

Furthermore, the award rates for domestic flights in Brazil are calculated based on distance.
