In an article on Japan air miles (1) – JAL official website tickets universal tool, we have introduced powerful search capabilities, today we talk about JAL's Exchange functions.JAL Mileage due to not turning point partners (only SPG can turn), mileage is not right to take, today we will talk about the need less mileage is also relatively affordable Exchange-single Exchange partner mileage.
1. How to look up how much JAL Mileage redemption flights need?
JAL Mileage Exchange complex, three ways to convert:
- JAL flight Exchange: Exchange form here.
- Exchange a single partner flights: airlines can exchange other than a small partner in the world, as well as JAL's partner France aviation AF, U.A.E. air EK, China Eastern Airlines MU, as well as Bangkok Airways PG, Exchange form here.Can only change an air Division, it cannot be exchanged for votes out of the mix.
- Exchange contains two or more OneWorld partner flights: Exchange form here.
Today we will speak second, is the single partner mileage Exchange.
2. Single partner mileage Exchange highlights what is it?
This is the form of Exchange:
We talked about two different exchange tables, the first is represented by the UA mileage Exchange, miles required depends on departure and arrival cities region, and flight path independent.Second is to Exchange BA Miles, miles required depends on each segment of the flight distance, and finally together is.And Nikko exchange table and the two are not the same, miles is required in accordance with the flight, a total distance of.
What is the difference between BA and the Exchange?To cite an example, if I want to change San Francisco via Los Angeles to San Diego's AA round trip economy class air ticket, as shown in the following figure:
To exchange words with BA, there are four flights, each piece is 4500 Avios, so total 4500*4=18K Avios is required.
JAL Mileage Exchange, the total distance is 893 Miles, falls in the range of 1-1000, according to the table, 15K JL mileage.It can be seen that in this example, the JL required mileage less than short artifact required BA Miles.
Therefore, we say that the BA Miles for those who live in the AA/US hub (the HUB, you can read this article on HUB) classmates, because you go out a lot of direct flights, with BA to change suits.These hub airports, including Dallas (DFW), Philadelphia (PHL) to Charlotte (CLT) and Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), Washington (DCA), Phoenix (PHX), New York (JFK/LGA), Chicago (ORD).
For students who live outside these cities, Japan Airlines JL mileage is better for you, because you do not need to short-distance flights to pay too much mileage.
