Redeeming awards out of Hong Kong? Here’s some sweet spots to consider

If you’re based in Hong Kong, you may be wondering which frequent flyer programs offer the best value for your miles. The truth is, there is no the”best” program, only the best program for you

In this post I want to lay out some of the best value options for Hong Kong based travelers (and how to earn them)

British Airways Avios for flights within 1,151 miles

Avios is well-known for offering great value on short haul awards. In particular, it is possible to redeem an economy flight for destinations 650 miles and below for 4,500 miles one-way, and 1,151 miles and below for 7,500 miles one-way.

Here is a sample of destinations that are close to Hong Kong- you could easily hop to Taipei or Hanoi for only 4,500 miles, with Manila, Shanghai and Changsha just 7,500 miles away.

From To Initial
Total: 2,924 mi
Average: 585 mi
HKG TPE 066° (NE) 069° (E) 501 mi
HKG PVG 037° (NE) 040° (NE) 779 mi
HKG HAN 263° (W) 266° (W) 526 mi
HKG MNL 138° (SE) 141° (SE) 711 mi
HKG CSX 354° (N) 357° (N) 407 mi


Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer to Micronesia and Guam

KrisFlyer classifies Hong Kong under the North Asia 1 zone, whereas Guam and Micronesia are part of North Asia 2. One-way tickets are 12,500 and 22,500 miles respectively for Economy and Business, which can be very good value considering the flight can be upwards of 5 hours.

If you’re looking to get to Micronesia from Hong Kong, United Airlines operates a flight from Guam that stops in TKK and PNI, however you’ll have a long connection in Guam which you can spend exploring the island.

As for PNI, well, I would say, enjoy your silence time there. On the than hand, TKK is a great place for wreck diving

United MileagePlus to Australia/New Zealand

Although the United program underwent a change late last year, there is still good value to be had flying from Hong Kong to Australia/New Zealand.

That’s because United classifies Hong Kong as part of “South Asia”, along with Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam.

As the example below shows, a flight from Hong Kong to Auckland via Thai Airways would only cost 25K miles in economy and 50K miles in business. Considering the flight time is close to 14 hours, this is a very good deal. As a business class passenger, you will also be able to enjoy a 30-minute spa treatment in the Thai Airways spa in Bangkok.

Make sure to include your excursionist award for a free segment

Lufthansa Miles & More to Hawaii

One-way awards between Hong Kong and Hawaii cost 20k/35k miles for economy/business class. This flight is about 11.5 hours of flying with a transit in Japan or South Korea, so it represents very good value once again. If you go with the Japan option, you will be able to fly on ANA’s 767-300 and 787-9 aircraft. The 787-9 will have full flat seats.

Emirates Skywards to Bangkok

Emirates operates a fifth freedom route between Hong Kong and Bangkok that uses their A380 aircraft. If you’ve always wanted to experience the over-the-top bling of Emirates cabins, here is one of the cheapest ways of doing so.

You can get a full flat seat with an inflight bar- not bad for a 3 hour flight!

Emirates Skywards charges 40,000 miles for a round trip business class flight between these two cities.

ANA Mileage Club to Europe and USA and Canada

ANA Mileage Club offers very good value redemptions out of Hong Kong to Europe and North America at just 93,000 and 95,000 miles for round trip business class (58,000 and 60,000 miles for round trip economy).

Remember that ANA Mileage Club does not allow one-way redemptions for partner flights.

How to earn these miles?

You can earn some of these miles through your bank credit cards, but for the widest selection of frequent flyer programs, you should use Mileslife. Mileslife has 16 different frequent flyer partners, all of which have direct credit agreements. You can use Mileslife and earn miles at over 20,000 selections around the world, from high end dining and retail, to luxury hotels and spas, to activities and attraction tickets, even from your daily walking and health activities.

在今天,明年即将大幅度贬值里程价值的美联航,又做出了另外一项贬值的举动。那就是,从美国时间明天开始,美联航官网, 手机app都将不再继续显示任何新加坡航空奖励票位置。但是,好消息是,各位还能继续在电话上预定到新航开放给星盟伙伴的奖励票(也就是非A380或77W商务头等以外的任意其他航班奖励位置)。



这项决定,首先由近日已沦落为了乌鸦嘴的UA Insider美联航官网账号首先在Flyertalk网站上公布。具知情人透露,UA是主动向SQ要求不再显示奖励位置的。至于原因呢,可能是新航奖励票结算的价格太贵了,美”廉“航已经开始吃不消了。


【Flyer friendly? Really? Flyer UNfriendly还差不多】

还记得吗,美联航最近的广告Campaign是啥? Fly the friendly skies(在友好的天空上飞翔),我觉得,接连贬值和屏蔽信息,还不如改成 fly the unfriendly lies 算了。美联航这个号称是近十年以来最大的广告Camgpaign, 算是彻底失败了。




1. 使用加航的 Aeroplan 系统来网上查票。

2. 使用全日空,目前公认最准确的系统来查票。

3. 使用AV,也就是哥伦比亚航空的 Lifemiles系统来查票。





我觉得,美联航这么做纯粹是要给大家的生活提供更多的乐趣。和美联航大妈聊天吹水,多开心啊!然后UA几个月之后捏指头一算,怎么自己最近Call Center的开销,比屏蔽SQ省的还要多好几倍? 笑谈。


Pablo 愿意跟您分享我所知道的常旅客知识, 如果有疑问,请尽管在下面的评论栏里面提出。我,刘总和Evan将会尽己所能,回答您的问题。

希尔顿可谓是和航空公司合作最激烈的酒店集团。毕竟它是唯一真正有double dip功能的回馈。及是,每次入住可以同时获得酒店积分和航空里程。在上一期Q3的时候,希尔顿就和超过十几家航空公司合作促销,其中包括全日空,日航,国航,土航,泰航,南航等等。

很多时候,我们大家计划行程并不能马上做出决定,总是需要这样或那样的改动。可以临时的保留预定,给自己多几天的思考总是好过要马上拍脑袋做决定。 除此之外,如果整个行程的某段暂时没有票,能临时保留其它航段的机票然后期望剩下的航段几天能再放出票也是好的。




3 南航,南航自己航班电话上可以保留24个小时

4 海航,可以保留几天,和客服商量

5 US Airways

使用US airways的里程时,里程票可以在电话上保留72小时。但有些客服会不保留含有国航的行程,遇见这样的情况,可以叫客服拿掉国航那一段,保留其余的。

6 汉莎


7 美联航


8 加拿大航空


9 全日空


10  达美航空


11 捷克航空


12 法航/荷航




14 英国航空公司


15 智利航空

1 飞国航2舱的,



2 飞国航经济舱的



3 飞汉莎,全美航空,美联航,全日空自己的航班的


4 飞其它公司的

这个需要看情况分析了,特别是如果常飞土航商务舱去欧洲却想要兑换欧洲航线的人,这个需要放到汉莎了。 如果你只是偶尔飞其它公司,那么你应该放到你经常积攒的公司,而如果你经常飞其它公司,你需要在美联航, 爱琴海,汉莎,韩亚,全日空和国航里面根据个人所需做出选择了。

以上只是考虑到了飞行里程,其它想US airways和加拿大航空可以通过一些其它方法累积,因此没有必要将飞行的里程考虑在内。

1 这个以前说过了,新计划要想得到高级会员,必须一年内飞4个美联航或者COPA的航段才可以,除此之外,

25000 级别的银卡在额外奖励里程里还是25%




这个额外的奖励里程除了在美联航以外,还有乘坐加拿大航空,全日空,汉莎,US Airways的航班都可以享受

2 给UA付费的头等舱,公务舱额外的里程多了

新的计划里,付费的头等舱将累积250%的里程,全价商务舱将获得175%的里程,打折的商务舱将获得150%的里程,而全价经济舱(Y,B) 也将累积125%的里程。

3 大幅度的提高了对汉莎和全日空2家公司2舱的累积

这个就比较给力了,新的计划给汉莎的头等舱(F,A)累积是250%, 全价公务舱(J,C,D)是175%,其它各仓位从100%-150%不等。这个累积的标准直接枪毙的汉莎自己的常客计划。 虽然汉莎自己的常客计划给所有公务舱是200%, 头等舱是300%, 高级会员外加25%,但是汉莎的计划兑换标准比UA高的太多,且燃油税也高的简直是恐怖了。所以,如果是一个长飞汉莎的人,毫无疑问的应该累积到UA的常客计划去了。


4 对国航2舱的定级里程累积下降了

这个本身影响不大,没有多少人会靠着飞国航去拿UA的高级会员, 且你没有4个UA自己的航段也永远拿不到

5 关于兑换
