Play UA mileage (1) we said that the UA mileage allowed for two openings (if you travel and the opening unfamiliar words written by OneMoreDay Airlines mileage travel and opening policy).UA mileage exchange regulations, opening only at the destination, cannot stay in the middle of the opening (except for Hawaii).But the trip seemed to be a pretty standard for a stay (Beijing) and spoke (Tokyo-Osaka).Why this journey is always wrong?
This problem involves UA mileage for travel and destination definition.For example, following the tour:
Fly from Los Angeles to Dubai, Dubai, Beijing, Beijing, San Francisco, everyone thinks that Beijing and Dubai, the two cities which is a stay in which is the opening it?The three apparently Los Angeles-Dubai, which is the longest, one way is and North America to the Middle East 42.5K, one-way 35K to North of North America, so normal Dubai destination, Beijing is a stay, right?
However, we can see from the picture, this three-stage flight 70K UA mileage, which is in accordance with the standards of round-trips to North America-North collection, so on this trip, in fact, Beijing is the destination, Dubai was just a stay.
Play UA mileage (1) we know UA charge mileage is based on the starting and destination Zone in which to collect, so far as the travel itinerary, which is how to decide which is the travel destination?This depends on the Power of each Zone, and the Zone Power sequence is as follows (based on the North American/economy class):
The higher Power of the ranking of the top, areas have been identified as destination for High Power, low Power are considered to be travel.In this case, Dubai is located in the Eastern Power lower than Beijing in the North, so Beijing is the destination, is staying in Dubai.So you can be in the North–an opening of destination, make the following itinerary:
However, if you want to make an opening in the Middle East, it must be an error, since Dubai is stuck, can't be done opening.
From another point of view, if you return economy class air ticket, North America-North Asia, and 70K UA mileage.If you are in Japan for a stay, and you also 70K, in the Middle East, Africa or Europe for a stay, is also 70K.But if for a stay in Hong Kong?Sorry, but to follow the standard North-South Asia to take you to and from 80K.Because Power higher than the North in the South Asia, Hong Kong as a destination.
Now we're back to user hellomovie Case, in this trip involves Beijing and Japan spent more than 24 hours two places, sorted according to the above, Power than the North Japan area, so Beijing is the destination, Japan is stuck in this trip Japan cannot have an opening in the territory.So the Tokyo-Osaka is not open to.If you slightly change the trip, San Francisco-Tokyo, Seoul-Beijing, Beijing-San Francisco, tickets (economy class):
If the whole business class, even with the (North America-Japan + Korea-North America) charge (75K+80K=155K), than North America-daily 160K 5 k:
Good use of Powerful Zone can also save us a lot of mileage, in addition to the examples above, we noted that Oceania's Power is higher than Australia and New Zealand, but needed a lower mileage, so he went to Australia, New Zealand and Oceania round-trip mileage, we will look at the following example.This is the Los Angeles-Auckland nonstop round trip, 80K UA mileage:
But if you add some Oakland to famous dive resort in Nadi, Fiji (Nadi) round-trip tickets, then you only need 70K UA mileage:
Finally add that Power over order is for flights departing from North America, different regions have different Power based on sequence, we have an opportunity to talk more about other area based on the order of Power.
