Airline Miles Calculators
Airline Miles Calculators for earning, redeeming, transferring, and calculating the cash value of airline miles with frequent flyer programs.
There are lots of perks and benefits that comes with joining a frequent flyer program. This include the ability to earn miles redeemable for rewards such as free flights along with the benefits of extra perks when flying with that particular airline such as seat upgrades. While every airline offers there own special set of different perks, most of the common ones consist of:
- Complimentary Seat Upgrades
- More Airline Miles Per Flight and/or $1 Spent With The Airline
- Waived and Reduced Fees on Itinerary Changes
- Complimentary or Reduced Food/Beverage Costs During Flights
- Access To Airline Lounges
- The Ability To Choose Special Seats (e.g. Emergency Exit Rows)
And that's just a few of the benefits that comes with being loyal to a specific airline. I recommend checking out the benefits of a few airlines to see if what they offer appeals to you. If you like a specific airline, but don't fly enough to earn elite status, many airlines offer credit cards that grant perks and benefits that closely mirror having status. It's like a shortcut for those who don't find themselves on a plane several times per month.
