Cathay Pacific is everyone like air Division, called Asia Miles mileage plan (Chinese name is Asia miles, referred to as Yavan).And Aeroplan-Air similar to the relationship between Canada, Yavan-Cathay is independently operated by the two companies.Because Cathay is a member in the world, so the OneWorld partners (such as the United States aviation AA, United Kingdom airline BA, Japan Airlines JL) flights Asia can accumulate, which in turn sub can also change these flights.In addition to OneWorld Yavan and other partners, including everyone is familiar with Air China CA, China Eastern Airlines MU, Alaska airline AS Qantas QF, and we are not very familiar with but also useful Bangkok Airways PG and Ireland air EI.
Because Asia charge a fuel surcharge, when the innocent OneMoreDay ignore the Asia Miles mileage plan, recently studied, found bright spots are a lot, let me introduce one by one.

Asia Miles is easy, because partners include AMEX MR,Citi TYP and Starpoints:
- Amex Membership Rewards (MR), 1K MR=1K Asia.
- Citi Thankyou Points (TYP), 1K TYP=1K Asia.
- SPG points (Starpoints), 20K SPG= 25K Asia, equivalent to 1 SPG=1.25 Asia.
Mileage conversion table
Asia miles conversion table is divided into two: the first is a single partner or single partner exchange table + Cathay Pacific/Dragonair:
- Only for the single partner or a single partner + Cathay Pacific/Dragonair, for example, can a pure AA flight, Cathay Pacific or AA+, but the table above standard does not apply to Exchange AA+ Japan Airlines flight.However, Air China, China Eastern Airlines, Jet Airways and S7 will not mix and Cathay Pacific/Dragonair ticket.
- Exchange of miles needed depends on the total distance of the flight.For example, for economy class AA New York-Chicago-Los Angeles, one-way distance is 2478 Miles, so mileage is one way 20K Asia travel 30K Asia.
- One way mileage is not required return half of the OneMoreDay suggest, and more cost-effective.Finland air AY, Japan Airlines JL, Iberia IB, Jordan aviation RJ, Chile this five airlines Division only for round trip air LA, can't change one way.
- If go to process and return path are not the same, that take longer to calculate mileage.That is, if another New York-Chicago-Los Angeles-Dallas-New York round-trip ticket, because Los Angeles-Dallas-New York long (2624 Miles), according to 2624 MIles to your mileage, so round-trip economy class 45K Sub.
- One way you can have a travel, and can have two stays open, up to two transfer (one each).Air China or Iberia could not travel nor speak.Opening at the start, must return to the country of departure cities.
- New Zealand Air NZ flights can only be exchanged between Hong Kong-Auckland (only wants to go to Tahiti or Fiji wash sleep).
- Cannot be exchanged for Alaska Airlines in business class, and cannot be exchanged for less than 1200 miles of Alaska Airlines to and from Mexico, please.(Well exotic restrictions)
Second table was exchanged two OneWorld partners to mix o
r mix and match 3P three OneWorld (which must be a Cathay Pacific/Dragonair):
- 5 stay, two open and two transit.
- Must be a OneWorld partner.
Let us take a look at what Asia does not collect on the route or drop fuel surcharges:
AA United States domestic flights Ireland air EI, Brazil TAM TAM, Air Berlin AB, Chile air LA, CA Air China and China Eastern MU flight in China, Alaska Airlines AS, New Zealand Air NZ.There are other S7 Airlines Aviation Division we wouldn't normally go, we do not say.Change your CPA flight fuel cost is not too high.
Although Asia charge a fuel surcharge of cheating, there is so much wonderful work restrictions.But there are still a lot of bright:
Highlights: Air China or China Eastern short
15K Asia China Eastern Airlines or Air China flights within 600 miles, including Shanghai-Okinawa, Fukuoka, Shanghai-Shanghai, Seoul, Shanghai, Taipei, Nanjing-Seoul, Beijing-Xian, and so on.These spanned short-distance flights require UA mileage 30K,AC mileage 20K, Yavan, 15K.Domestic short trips to and from is also good.Eastern HUB of Shanghai, Chongqing, Nanjing, Kunming, Xian, Wuhan, HUB of Air China including Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai, Guangzhou and so on, friends living in these cities can be used yawanlai plan a short trip.From Shanghai within 600 Miles to where?Following figure within the circle of the place just where the 15K Asia and universal:
With Beijing as the Center, is within 600 Miles of the following areas:
Went to meet with AU leaders are also possible.Of miles needed for more than short artifact for BA, but members of OneWorld in the mainland does not, Exchange Air China Eastern Airlines for the most extensive domestic, Yavan or good.
If extended to 1200 Miles or less, select more, such as the Beijing-Guangzhou, Beijing-Shenzhen, Xian-Chengdu-Lhasa, Shanghai, Tokyo, Shanghai, Manila, Shanghai, Sanya, round-trip economy class is 20K Asia.And level of Aeroplan, Aeroplan only out of the air, can't change China Eastern Airlines ticket.This shangyawan is superior.
Point two: China and round trip
If you tend to sit in economy class return to home base is a relatively large city, then Asia is also a good choice.One-way distance of less than 7500 Miles flights as long as 60K, less than the UA and AA.
If your Base is in Beijing or Shanghai, the following table shows the flight AA direct flights between China and the distance (unit is Miles):
In less than 7500 Miles.If you're not in the big cities, are likely to join a short flight to these big cities, and total control to fly in less than 7500 Miles.For chestnut, Bob at the Ohio State University, summer wanted to return to Shanghai, changed planes in Chicago Midway, is AA.OSU 7353 is the nearest airport is the one-way distance of CMH,CMH-ORD-PVG MIles, since all are AA flight, so round-trip economy class only need 60K Asia, compared with 70K is some kind of AA mileage.
If your Base is Hong Kong or Guangdong, direct flights for Cathay Pacific, West of the San Francisco-Hong Kong and Los Angeles-Hong Kong one-way distance are below 7500 Miles, East is more than 7500 MIles, low price.
There is also a choice between China and Japan Airlines.Japan Airlines destinations in North America are Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, San Diego and San Francisco, the destinations on the Mainland are Beijing, Dalian, Shanghai, Tianjin, Guangzhou, China.For example, you sit back to Dalian Nikko from Chicago, Midway change in Tokyo, from gcmap.com can be found above the total flight distance is 7332 Miles:
60K Asia plus two hundred or three hundred-dollar fuel surcharge.Students in other cities on the gcmap.com will try to see his planned route over 7500 Miles.
Sino-US round and ultimately of course dear Air China and China Eastern Airlines, similar to exchange ideas, if you are in the United States Base in the big cities, are generally two or three cities and return home, can also be used.For example you want to return to Zhengzhou from Los Angeles, Los Angeles-Shanghai-Zhengzhou flights for China Eastern Airlines, one-way distance 7003 Miles, round-trip economy class 60K sub master take care of things.East Coast friends, Air China is a good helper for you, Yes.
To sum it up: United States small towns to big cities in the country for AA, United States cities to smaller cities in the country for Air China or China Eastern Airlines, domestic change of air in the North, or JAL, try country in the South Eastern Airlines or Cathay Pacific.
Highlight three: East Coast to Europe and from
First of all, let us look at a simple point of Exchange.From New York to Dublin, Ireland airline Aer Lingus (never heard of BA Miles Aer Lingus can read my writing), played in Dublin after a lap to go to Paris, from Paris to Prague, played by Aer Lingus returned to New York.Are as follows:
One way follow 4086 Miles to your mileage, so the economy class return 45K, business-class return 80K.Round trip in Dublin can stay, since Aer Lingus fuel charges are low, so not many other incidental expenses are in addition to mileage needs.
Now OneMoreDay is a slightly more complex Exchange, New York yawanlai Exchange-Berlin flights of Air Berlin AB, as the one-way distance is 3968 Miles, according to the first table, round trip economy class is 45K, business class is 80K.However, I went to Europe not only one place to go right, I want to go to Naples, Rome, Zurich and other places.Then I will design a trip for you:
From New York to Berlin to play around, and then went to Rome, then take the train South to Naples, Pompeii, a taste of South Italy's oldest Pizza, then fly to Zurich to see snow-capped mountains, the last connecting flight back to New York from Düsseldorf.Because the whole is Air Berlin AB fly, so your mileage in the first table, round trip economy class remains as long as 45K, business class only needs 80K!And Asia for Air Berlin ticket is not fuel surcharges.We said this before with Aeroplan mileage exchange business between the US and Europe as long as the 90K and this one is great, but you can see from this example, in fact in some lines, use Exchange can be cheaper!
