Believes many on mileage votes has understand of students are know, some votes (for example A-B Zhijian of votes), in many mileage votes search engine Shang, through directly search beginning a, to end b, and cannot get all feasible of route (learning CS of people are should know, this A-B Zhijian tickets of problem, is "travel salesman problem (TSP)", is belongs to NP-Complete problem, theory is no linear time of certainty algorithm of, words sentence said, Search engine is not possible given all the possible paths in a short time.）。This time, we need manual retrieval possible routes between A-B to see if each paragraph has the rest of the reward tickets.If we detect such a route, all segments have a reward ticket, but also meet Exchange mileage Airlines mileage rules, then you can call the customer service of votes out of the way.
However, as part of our consumer, how do you know what are the possible routes between A-B?In this regard, we can use Wikipedia's way to solve this problem.Chanye below will teach you how to find the route
Steps to resolve
- Find the mileage to be used to Exchange air Division (such as JAL JAL) and HUB (Tokyo, Nagoya, Kansai KIX/in Osaka, Narita Tokyo Haneda HND/NRT/NGO)
- Locate the air Division (such as JAL JAL) in the corresponding countries (such as United States US) destinations
- Found in the corresponding routes (LAX) air Division (such as JAL JAL) flight (such as LAX-NRT)
- Query whether the flight had the remaining mileage tickets
Enquiries Canadian air Division and the HUB
In our previous article (introduction to airline alliances, how to change a return mileage of the season tickets?(Article in the world), how to change a return mileage of the season tickets?(Star Alliance article), repeatedly mentioned, for mileage votes should have Union consciousness, then how easy found out exactly what each Union and some aviation Division?Very simple, Wikipedia can do us a favor.
Here we in Oneworld OneWorld, for example, to us the simple and practical tips.
- First of all, open Wikipedia OneWorld entry (here, I recommend using the English version of Wikipedia, since the more professional, updated more frequently, so the information is more accurate)
- Then click on "3.1 Full members and their affiliates" or scroll down to the entry, you can see all members of the OneWorld OW
- And then make the call: their knowledge of geography, between their point of departure and the destination, there may be air Division which countries in the table.(Such as Sino-US Airline JAL JAL and American Airlines will naturally have slightly AA)
- Click a certain air Division (AA AA for example), enter the entry, on the right you can see the air Division which is the HUB of
- Some of you may ask: why do we want to know what are the HUB of the air Division?The answer is that the traditional airlines Division, mostly in the form of radiation non-HUB HUB operations, HUB will put in a lot of flights, international flights and one end of the generally is the HUB of the air Division, so that the air Secretary HUB that are essential.
Locate the air Division in the corresponding country destinations
When we know our mileage can be exchanged after which air Division flight, how do we know the needs of the aviation Division in our route (such as China), what are the routes which are?Also, Wikipedia can solve this problem for us.
- The Wikipedia page on AA AA, find the "Destinations" entry and click on the "American Airlines destinations", go to the next page
- "American Airlines destinations" page, click on the Country, the list are sorted according to the first letter
- Then slide, find the country or region we are interested in (such as CHINA), you can see the flights on AA AA, you can reach the country (region) where the
- Here we see that the AA in city routes rarely, only two, and then we see Japan which destinations, after all, Japan change is good.
- And then we'll see, WTF!AA in Japan had only one destination!This is clearly not enough, too little choice, has there.But Japan is home to the airline, so we'll see JAL in United States how many destinations, views as above, not only into JAL flight Division.
- Is it suddenly feel a lot better, the airline in the United States there are so many destinations!!Although gray is already stopped, but operating there are Boston, Chicago, Honolulu, JFK in New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, the seven destinations!!And, according to this table, will resume by the end of the Dallas destinations!Isn't it exciting?Similarly, JAL routes of many celestial
- Envy in Beijing, Dalian, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Tianjin, dear students, the airline directly to the door.Similarly, we can come to see Hong Kong-Cathay Pacific/Dragonair.
- Cathay Pacific to us there are Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York JFK, EWR, New York, San Francisco, these six routes, and we'll look at the access to the city
- A lot, has there!Attention here is because Cathay Pacific/Dragonair with regard to access to the city, usually by Dragonair KA fly Cathay in magic second only two routes, Dragonair KA as a subsidiary of the Cathay Pacific CX, also members of OneWorld, so no difference in votes within the Union.
In the previous step, we know how to use Wikipedia to find a particular division of air destinations in a country, but how can we have the check to the waypoint, which route is the air Division has it?Still, Wikipedia can do us a favor.
Here we have JFK in New York, Honolulu, HNL, for example, to query for available JAL JAL flights
- First of all, we enter New York JFK's Wikipedia entry, scroll to the "Airlines and destinations" entry, and find the "Japan Airlines"
- Then we found that JAL has such a Tokyo Narita NRT-New York JFK route, then the next job is to use search engines to find tickets to slightly …Some students might think, don't bother checking line, Japan Airlines to the United States based on the lines of Tokyo Narita, but it isn't.Here's example of Honolulu HNL
- We can see that JAL Honolulu HNL, from Central Nagoya NGO, KIX Osaka Kansai, Tokyo HND Haneda, Tokyo Narita NRT four airport flights.And we find, Air China CA PEK-Beijing flights to Honolulu HNL, when we were when it came to Star Alliance flights, this is very useful information.
Wikipedia is a very powerful tool for Wikipedia, using ingenious, can enhance the success rate of our mileage ticket booking!Hope at the time of booking, especially helpless when, can use the methods in this article to solve immediate problems.
