Your Award Miles per flight vary according to:

  • distance flown (actual distance, set number of Miles or minimum mileage),
  • ticket fare(1),
  • class of service and booking class (1).

    Examples :
  • A First class round trip between Paris and Tokyo, will earn you 36,174 Award Miles:12,058 Miles for the actual distance , plus an additional 24,116 Miles class of service bonus for travelling First class.
  • A round trip between Amsterdam and Paris in Economy class, will earn you 1,500 Miles (750 Miles as a minimum mileage).
