    Hi there,

    We have just launched a new miles calculator that computes the redemption rates for free award flights across multiple frequent flyer programs. Simply punch in a city pair to see how many miles are needed to fly from point A to point B. We currently have about 40 programs in the system; all rates are based on the FFPs' published rates.

    Try it here: www.milez.biz

    Just a quick follow-up ...

    We have added four new ff programs to our calculator (based on user feedback):

    - topbonus (air berlin / NIKI)
    - Miles & Bonus (Aegean Airlines and Star Alliance)
    - Smiles (GOL/Varig and partner airlines)
    - BMI Diamond Club (incl. Star Alliance routes)

    Happy New Year!

    Does it show low, medium, high rates, for example for DL, or assume low availability?

    You should try it out yourself. I just did and it shows Low availability similar to other carriers. The site shows low/saver miles instead of the medium/high/anytime awards.

    For DL, low availability can be almost nonexistent on some routes. So knowing the theoretical low price is almost disinformation.

    Nice idea. Looks like it's getting slightly hammered so I will need to try this later on.

    One comment: it would be nice to search by alliance and maybe seat type.

    Great job! I was wondering when someone smarter than me was going to put something like this together. It will certainly save alot of time when looking at what redemption is best for what route.

    Can't wait until more OneWorld carriers are added once the distance based stuff gets going. Keep up the good work and thanks alot! I'll be adding it to my miles/points resources bookmark!
