With 85,000 miles, you can fly first class to Hawaii on a SkySaver award (75,000 miles) or fly in coach to India or Sri Lanka (80,000 miles).
Medallion members who earn 100,000 MQMs will receive a threshold bonus of 15,000 bonus miles. Earn 125,000 MQMs and you’ll be given an additional 20,000 bonus miles. Members who reach 150,000 MQMs can choose between 25,000 bonus miles or a membership to Crown Room Club for one year. Earn 175,000 MQMs and you’ll receive an additional 25,000 bonus miles, or other exclusive gifts.
