Que fait milez.biz?


Milez.biz vous permet de comparer les barèmes primes de miles des différents programmes de fidélisation des compagnies aériennes.

Tapez les destinations qui vous intéressent dans le formulaire (attendez un instant pour voir les options "auto-complete", ou entrez simplement l'abréviation IATA de l'aéroport).

Même si les miles ne sont pas comparables directement de programme en programme, la calculatrice vous donne néanmoins un aperçu, quel programme serait peut-être le plus avantageux pour vous.

La majeure partie de notre contenu est en anglais, mais la calculatrice et les données sont maintenant disponibles en français! Nous ajouterons plus de fonctions en français d'ici peu.

Mises à jour de Milez.biz

  1. Surcharges on Aeroplan Redemptions
    15 October, 2019

    Fees and surcharges often change at a moment's notice and it is difficult for the standard frequent flyer program member to keep track of how high the fees and surcharges on each flight are. We keep track of the fees for the main overseas flights on Aeroplan award tickets and have organized them in an easy-to-view format. Some of these fees have changed significantly in recent times so that we are currently going through an update of this data. One notable difference is that Air China no longer has very low fees and surcharges, but rather now has high surcharges. You can see this on the surcharges page when comparing some of the old surcharges still on the system, with the recent updates. On some flights to Europe the fees have gone up more than tenfold.  

    The fees that apply to Aeroplan awards are often very similar to the ones that apply in other Star Alliance programs. So these numbers are also useful to members of other Star Alliance programs.
  2. Second Part of THAI Update
    19 November, 2019

    We have now also added the second part of the update to the THAI award tables. The THAI only award rates include flights with THAI Airways (TG) and THAI Smile Air (WE). The award rates are now organized by zones and most connections are through Bangkok (BKK).

    A flight redemption from Thailand to Europe (for example, Bangkok to Paris) requires slightly less miles on the Thai-only chart than on the Star Alliance chart.
  3. Jet Airways Calculators Removed
    21 November, 2019

    We have removed all Jet Airways miles calculators from milez.biz since the airline ceased operation in April 2019. This includes all Jet AirwaysJetPrivilege calculators as well as the calcualtors we had for tis partner programs (Etihad, Emirates, Garuda, Korean).
  4. LifeMiles Adjustments
    25 November, 2019

    There are many great ways to use Avianca LifeMiles and the program regularly has good promotion deals on miles sales. The milez.biz 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.
  5. Adding JAL Partner Calculators
    6 December, 2019

    We are currently adding the JAL partner calculators. These are the non-oneworld airlines that JAL Mileage Bank members can redeem flights with. So far we have uploaded the Emirates and the Alaska Airlines partnerships.

    For example see how many JAL Miles you need to travel from Tokyo to London w/ Emirates:    https://www.milez.biz/en/list_rates.php?f=NRT&t=LHR&ffp=246   

    Or to Honolulu from San Francisco with Alaska Airlines:    https://www.milez.biz/en/list_rates.php?f=SFO&t=HNL&ffp=247  

    For a short time we are offering a promo code while we add all the JAL calculators, enter 'JAL-Milez' to get a 10% on any subscription.

  6. Remaining JAL Partner Calculators
    9 December, 2019

    We have now also added the remaining JAl partner calculators

    - Air France, compare the different JAL options for traveling from, Tokyo to Paris
    - Hawaiian Airlines, for example Haneda straight to Big Island
    - Korean Air, you can use Korean to travel from Japan to Hawaii, Osaka-Honolulu
    - China Eastern
    - Bangkok Airways
    - JetStar, compare rates for domestic flights in Japan with the normal JAL rates, e.g. Tokyo to Okinawa

  7. Qantas Adds Air France as Partner
    19 December, 2019

    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. 
  8. Small Devaluation of the Aegean Program
    20 December, 2019

    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.
  9. Premium Economy Rates Added to American Airlines Calculator
    30 December, 2019

    We have added the premium economy rates to our calculators and have updated some of the rates that have changed. The significant changes are to be found mainly on the routes to Hawaii. 
  10. New Calculator: ConnectMiles (CopaAirlines)
    22 January, 2020

    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.
  11. Copa Own Metal Calculator
    27 January, 2020

    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.
  12. MyAirItalyClub Calculator Added
    6 February, 2020

    We have added the award rate calculator for Air Italy (IG); the frequent flyer program name is MyAirItalyClub. Most Air Italy flights connect through the hub in Milan Malpensa (MXP). We have also added the transfer calculator for transfers to and from MyAirItalyClub to American Express Italy.
  13. Added Royal Air Maroc Routes to oneworld calculators
    26 September, 2020

    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.



  14. Calculate and Compare by Alliance
    15 December, 2020

    We have added one-click alliance selection options to our award rate calculator. Simply type in the name of one of the three major alliances and then select it if you want to quickly compare all programs within an alliance: 

  15. Aeroplan Relaunched
    8 January, 2021

    Air Canada’s Aeroplan program has been redesigned and relaunched in November 2020. The relaunched program still has award rate tables but they are now a blend of zone-based rates and distance-based rates. We have adjusted the milez.biz code and data so it would accommodate the new calculations. 

    Aeroplan used to divide the world into 15 geographical zones; the new program only has four zones. In other words, many zones were amalgamated. This brings both advantages and disadvantages to the miles cost of award flights. Generally speaking, flights across an ocean now cost a little more due to mile devaluation. However, flights within a zone can in some cases be significantly less expensive, especially where multiple zones were merged into one zone. 

    For example:
    The lowest round-trip award rate for a flight in economy between North America and Europe is now 70,000 miles. This used to be 60,000 from anywhere in North America to the Europe I Zone, e.g. an award ticket from Los Angeles to Vienna. That same redemption is now 110,000 miles due to the long distance between the destinations. 

    On the other hand, travelling from Rome to Cairo used to cost 45,000 miles for a round trip ticket in economy. Now, this rate has dropped to only 25,000 miles because the two destinations are within the same Atlantic Zone and relatively close to each other (and there is a direct flight).

    There are many more examples like that. The sweet spots will be found between destinations in the same zones that used to be in distinct zones, especially if there are direct flights or where the connecting airport is along the route, geographically speaking. For example, an award flight from Austin, TX, to Havana, Cuba, used to cost 40,000 miles round-trip in economy; now, even with the connection in Houston, the round-trip is only 20,000 miles. 

    One of the key changes to the Aeroplan program is the removal of the fuel surcharges. Certain airlines like Air Canada, Lufthansa and Austrian used to charge very high fuel surcharges on award tickets, which made redemptions on those airlines very unattractive. These have been eliminated so that even with the somewhat higher award rates it may now be worth using your miles on flights with those airlines. 

    Another novelty is that you can now interrupt one-way itineraries. This was not possible in the old iteration of Aeroplan. There is a 5,000-mile cost associated to a stopover but this may be a very attractive option for many travellers. 

    The old Aeroplan award rates are no longer valid. However, we will leave the old calculator up and running for a few weeks so that you can compare the rates and find awards tickets that may be a better deal now. The new Aeroplan calculator on milez.biz includes all the Star Alliance carriers as well as the Aeroplan partner airlines: Etihad, Canadian North, GOL, Azul, Air Serbia, Air Creebec, Olympic, Eurowings, Vistara and Juneyao.
