The Global Traveller offers his analysis of the changes in the Singapore Airlines Krisflyer award chart that I recently mentioned.
He reiterates my point about the value in 50% mileage cost for one-way awards. That’s a big improvement.
The reduction in the number of zones on the award chart means some awards become more expensive. The Delta chart has more zones, however, and generally higher prices for premium cabin awards.
The nice benefit for Virgin awards is that multiple flights can be combined for a through ticket, Kiwi gives the example of North America to Africa which used to require two awards but can now be done as one. At the same time, however, award prices go up.
Meanwhile, Air India awards don’t change.
Thanks for the recap, Kiwi Flyer!
