In the article introduction to the Air Canada Aeroplan Miles on (1)-miles in the analysis of Exchange we have told AC miles of some of the more classic convertible road.Today we leave the table or map aside, take a look at Aeroplan and what advantages and disadvantages of Exchange.
1. The early bird catches the worm
Generally, you with mileage set tickets are is can set to almost a years Hou of tickets of, but this "almost a years" is is subtle of things, different of airlines also not as, such as said UA only check to 338 days Hou of mileage votes, but AC mileage is can set to 356 days Hou of mileage votes, that is, if has a airlines Division in 338 days outside released mileage votes words, you can with AC mileage to for to, but is can't with UA mileage for to, this middle has close three week of time.To cite an example, today still 351 days from August 24, so you can now use the AC range to this ticket:
You can only wait until two weeks later, on September 21 to go to a ticket holders can only pray when there is no AC mileage for light.If you have the AC range, we can in this three-week lag leisure leisurely trip, don't worry UA mileage holders beat out tickets.
Not only the US and Europe this ticket, have put on August 24 miles on the route between China and there are a lot of home:
Each sector Division releases vote is certain from the beginning, if you find UA 338 days later ANA, Asiana, Eva, cannot return to the mileage booked it, maybe AC mileage holders beat off.
Here to introduce two smaller tools, maybe one day you can use:
- Distance x x day how many days https://daycalc.appspot.com/
- Query x x XXX is what day a few days ago, for example, you have a target travel dates, you can use this to check the when can I start using AC or UA mileage to book: http://www.timeanddate.com/date/DateAdd.html
2. Infant tickets, emergency ticket within 21 days
OneMoreDay generally will not take Baby out for tourism, but if the last thing you want to take a Baby under two years out, then you need a ticket?Although you all hold him/her, you do not need a new seat.Trans-Ocean flights you can reserve a baby cradle, but economy class environment, you know, so general BA BA Ma Ma brought children had better sit in business class.
If you use the UA mileage tickets, United States territory can free a baby between the United States and Canada Mexico pays only taxes, but if it is international will pay the full price ticket of 10% plus taxes and fees, return economy class also has a two hundred or three hundred knives, business class is surprisingly expensive.Concrete can be seen here.OneMoreDay does not recommend such a change.
By contrast, Aeroplan, in this regard, a kind-hearted person, regardless of the line AC for your mileage for go anywhere around the world, plus ticket to a baby?No problem, economy class is $50 or 5,000miles, business class is $100 or 10,000miles, just $125 or 12,500miles in first class.
In fact, and as kind and we mentioned this before AC Exchange BA Miles, mileage for adults votes, just add a 10% of mileage plus taxes and fees can add a baby ticket, is also very good.
Finally, said emergency ticket costs, UA and AA are 75 per cent emergency ticket within 21 days of the sword (although UA can be used free of charge within 24 hours of an alteration to avoid this fee).AC mileage and BA Miles tickets are not required to receive emergency ticket costs, so they can walk away with nothing to fear.
3. Fuel surcharge
UA mileage and AC of the contrast before so many miles, and temporarily AC mileage advantage even more.But if you are UA mileage fan, seen here can finally feel proud and elated, because AC range for some airline fuel surcharges.In fact, I think students living in North America are often being UA and AA mileage benefits of no fuel surcharges and spoiled, many airlines mileage Exchange Division is to fuel surcharges, alternative is no charge.AC mileage to which airlines does not charge or low fuel surcharges?
First of all is that we are most familiar with the UA CA there are Air China and Air China ZH I Shenzhen Airlines, business first class West, but East's business-first class-only very stingy preferred flew empty to put out for Exchange.
Second is the curved side of the EVA Air BR, transatlantic flights from Taipei to Los Angeles LAX, San Francisco SFO, Seattle SEA, Vancouver YVR, YYZ, Toronto, New York JFK, as well as the new Hello Kitty aircraft fly Houston HOU line:
Then there is the tall on the Singapore Airlines SQ, but AC mileage only for economy class, can't change his family's business and first class.Round trip if you want to bypass between China and Singapore can try SIA's three good lines Los Angeles lax-Tokyo NRT, SFO-HKG, Hong Kong, San Francisco, San Francisco SFO Seoul ICN:
There's reputation before the average Asiana Airlines OZ, belong to that class of fuel costs less, North American destinations were New York JFK Chicago ORD, San Francisco SFO, LAX, Los Angeles.So if friends want to see California to return home, AC miles is there are a lot of choices.Friends from the East Coast and the Great Lakes do not lose heart, UA, Air China, Asiana and Evergreen home without the high cost of fuel.
Headed East, remember the last article mentions 90K business to and from the US and Europe (price to 110K, see Air Canada mileage devalued, how do we respond?)?If you're in Lufthansa estimated eight hundred or nine hundred-dollar fuel surcharge will make you feel bad.Between the US and Europe do not charge YQ or YQ less freedom Division include:
- Brussels Airlines SN home BRU, North American destinations were New York JFK and Washington IAD
- Poland air LOT, at home in Warsaw WAW, North American destinations were New York JFK Chicago ORD and Toronto YYZ
- Switzerland air LX at home in Zurich ZRH, North American destinations are Montreal YUL, BOS, Boston, Newark EWR, Chicago ORD, JFK in New York, Los Angeles, LAX, MIA, Miami, San Francisco SFO
- Turkey air TK home Istanbul IST, North American destinations are Montreal YUL Toronto YYZ, BOS, Boston, Chicago ORD, HOU Houston, Washington IAD, SFO San Francisco, New York JFK, LAX, Los Angeles, there will be opening of the ATL in Atlanta and Miami MIA flights
- Scandinavian Airlines SK, home in the Nordic countries, blocks SK AC system, so I can't online ticket must call AC tickets are sold to North American destinations are Chicago ORD, IAH, Houston, Washington, IAD, SFO San Francisco, Newark EWR, there will be opening of the LAX, Los Angeles and Miami MIA flights
- Portugal airline TAP home Lisbon LIS, North America destination, Newark EWR, Miami MIA
- Singapore Airlines SQ: trans-Atlantic just Exchange economy, transatlantic round trip between New York JFK-Frankfurt FRA IAH-Moscow DME and Houston two routes.
- New Zealand Air NZ: roundtrip Los Angeles lax-London LHR routes between the US and Europe.
- Ethiopian Airlines ET: DUB, Dublin, between the US and Europe to and from lax-Los Angeles route.
For example, if you want to be next spring from New York to Paris, in order to avoid fuel costs, we can choose to transfer in Warsaw: first look JFK-WAW of the direct flight route in the UA, UA mileage Exchange introduction methods can read my writing; found March 7 JFK-WAW of Poland airlines direct flight to business class or the Boeing 787, a full lie flat business class:
Also is with UA, check to March 8 also has has Warsaw to Paris of business class mileage votes, so this two paragraph on can received up became a article full of JFK-WAW-CDG of full business of tickets, check good zhihou to Aeroplan of officer online to found One-way JFK-CDG, then reservation tickets on can has (update: one-way has price to 55K, see added Airlines mileage devaluation, we how should?)：
