    Soo...

    I am thinking of booking F to get the mileage bump. But:-

    1) Is the bonus for F 2X or 3X normal miles? I see 200% and 300% in various forums, one is obviously much more attractive. For example on a recent MEX-FRA trip I got 8924 base plus 1488 SEN miles. What would that have been if it had been in first?

    2) What's a good F mileage to dollar ratio ie., CPM, when I have the correct bonus factor applied?

    Many thanks

    PS I bumped into Rudi on a ZRH-MUC flight last week, he was sporting an old FT flight tag given to him by Randy Petersen, which how I spotted him. And on the MUC-ZRH direction I had a short chat with Peter Sauber about the good old days in sportcars. Clearly the Zurich run is the one to be on.

    HI Jellypods:
    F is 3 times normal miles. The SEN bonus does not change.

    There are not really any good F mileage to dollar ratios- however if you want to fly F make sure you can find a destination with an A fare- and look for First Class fare promotions. 6000 EUR round trip is usually pretty good for an F fare as a benchmark.

    Thank you, this is helpful, especially the A fare tip.
