Updates to Calculator
No More United Award Charts
The United Mileage Plus program stopped publishing award charts in the summer of 2020. It is therefore no longer possible for milez.biz to show completely accurate award rates on its website. We nonetheless continue showing United Mileage Plus calculators as we have made adjustments to reflect what seems to be the consensus on the miles required for award flights.
United’s own metal “saver” rates seem to have stayed mostly the same as before. These rates include flights with non-Star Alliance Partners as well. We have, however, removed the “standard” rates from our calculator. United's non-Star Alliance partner members airlines are the following:
- Aer Lingus
- Air Dolomiti
- Boutique Air
- Cape Air
- Edelweiss Air
- Silver Airways
Star Alliance award rates have been devalued across the board by 10%. This also affects itineraries that include United Airlines flights.

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)
Milez.biz 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
