The icing on the increase in miles from 90-110K Haven't seen ANY discussion of this. No more routing thru Europe-Asia. You used to be able to route from the US to Asia via Europe. Here is the info from the US Air website: Certain itineraries are subject to mileage restrictions. Travel from North America to Europe is not allowed via Asia, and travel between Europe and Japan/North Asia/South Asia/Australia/New Zealand is not permitted via North America.
