Hello. We are pretty new to using airline miles for flights. Just started this year and have taken advantage of most sign up offers through Chase, Citibank, Cap One, Am Ex.... We are planning a big family trip to Hawaii in a year and I am focusing on collecting United miles. I know as of now that we can get there each way for 20K milesaver and 40K anytime awards. My question is how often do airlines change their "awards" by increasing miles needed? I have pretty much focused on earning hotel miles for stays the last few years and I always expect increases on the hotel side...but I have no idea how often airlines change their award tables... Has it been at this level for awhile? Should I expect increases to 25K or 50K? Just trying to get an idea. I have 5 tickets to purchase next year! I am very much hoping they DO NOT do away with miles and money....I'll need that to pull together this trip!!!
