  1. Doesn’t Accor now require 4,000 points for a miles conversion?

    “The minimum transferable amount for each of these airline companies is 4,000 Le Club Accorhotels points per conversion, based on the following conversion rate:
    4,000 Le Club Accorhotels points = 2,000 airline miles.
    There are 5 exceptions:
    For Qantas Frequent Flyer (Qantas Airways), the conversion rate is: 4,000 Le Club Accorhotels points = 4,000 airline miles.
    For PhoenixMiles (Air China), Eastern Miles (China Eastern) and Sky Pearl Club (China Southern), the conversion rate is: 4,000 Le Club Accorhotels points = 3,200 km.
    tFor Flying Blue (Air France KLM), the minimum amount of Le Club Accorhotels points for conversion is 4,000 points, with a maximum of 60,000 Le Club Accorhotels points convertible per year, per cardholder, based on the following conversion rates:
