Flying Club Miles are generally worth 1.2 cents each when used to book award travel, but can be work a lot more or a lot less depending on a great deal of factors. Look at the flight costs between Detroit (DTW) and London-Heathrow (LHR) below.
The first three days gives your Flying Club Miles a value of more than 5 cents per point while the end of the week gives you a value of about 1 cent each. For me personally, I find that booking one-way trips with Virgin Atlantic gives you more options and a little bit more value than just your standard round-trip.
I can book a one way flight on August 16th for 22,500 Flying Club Miles and $200 and a one-way ticket back for 27,500 miles and 137.32 Great British Pounds ($180 USD). This costs me a total of 50,000 Flying Club Miles and $380 which saves me 5,000 miles and $143 when compared to the round trip price. This also gives my points a value of 1.38 cents each.
Flying Club Miles can be used to book airfare on several other airlines. This includes:
