    Yeah, I winced when I saw the change in US->Asia award redemption rates ... wished I put a few more trips on hold this year now to save on the difference. Oh well.
     
  4. It is very sad as the new year starts for elite's the awards program continues to decline and the Skymiles program also continues to be called best in class but still falls short compared to others.

    And it's called "Best In Class" by who? [diver90 prepares to be amazed]

    The other shoe is yet to drop on the United/CO program. Meanwhile, the hotels are undertaking their annual devaluation.....
     

  7. I have seen a few summaries out there. While some show that DL award fares are 'better' (e.g., HKG BE dropped from 240K to 220K), many of them are higher. In fact, more higher than lower.

    The only good thing I see it that at least there is a working calendar now. Might not like the availability or the amount of SM's required but at least we can see what it cost everywhere now.

    As we all know.............
    Burn miles as quickly as possible....they never increase in value.

    Will CO/UAL follow soon in changing the award miles requirement chart?
